Bionic Braid was born from a collaboration of pioneering Australian sportfishing anglers who noted the short comings in existing braided and fused gel spun lines and set out to make a braid that was both distinctive and superior.
So, Australian Made Platypus Bionic Braid and its distinctive pink colouration were born. As world travelled anglers the anglers involved had a distinct advantage over the industry in that they did their own field testing on the toughest fighting and most iconic species globally. This saw Platypus Bionic Braid develop a strong following as a proven big fish braid, both as a mainline and also as a backing on fly reels.
Don's formula was to use eight carrier, when the industry standard was a four or five carrier, increasing the cost of materials and manufacture, however resulting in a smoother and slicker braid, that handled and wore well, with excellent knot strength.
Bionic is still considered by many to be the go-to big fish braid, for anglers fishing themselves and their gear to the limit.
