The Dive Gear Express exclusive Hi-Viz Dacron Line is better than the generic nylon line commonly used in diving applications because it is high tenacity, braided DuPont Dacron®. Hi-Viz Dacron costs a bit more than generic nylon line, but this abrasion resistant line has slightly negative buoyancy, won't twist or kink, and has minimal stretch. Hi-Viz Dacron line is stronger than #36 nylon line, yet is slightly thinner than #24 nylon line and flat woven, so extra is able to be loaded on the reel. White nylon line is difficult to see in open water, but Hi-Viz Line stands out like neon, allowing easier line management with nearby divers. Available in orange, yellow, ultra white, glow-in-the-dark or black, choose Hi-Viz Dacron Orange for best distance visibility or Hi-Viz Dacron Yellow for best low-light visibility. The durable color of Hi-Viz Dacron line also remains vibrant over time, unlike the "wash-out" fading typical of ordinary dyed nylon cave line.

About Our Hi-Viz Dacron Line

The Dive Gear Express exclusive braided Hi-Viz Dacron Line costs a bit more than generic nylon, but this abrasion resistant high tenacity line has slightly negative buoyancy, also resists twisting or kinking, and has minimal stretch. Our Hi-Viz Dacron line is stronger than #36 nylon line, yet is slightly thinner than #24 nylon line, so you can load extra on the reel.

White line is difficult to see in open water, but our Hi-Viz Dacron line stands out like neon, allowing easier line management with nearby divers. The durable orange color of our Hi-Viz Dacron line also remains vibrant over time, unlike the "wash-out" fading typical of ordinary dyed nylon cave line. View the twenty second video of two divers on their stop during a training dive to watch the Hi-Viz line in action.

We are often asked 'What is the tested breaking strength?' Unfortunately, there are several different types of synthetic polymers sold as nylon and no standards for the test methodologies, so it's impossible to compare published ratings from different sources. Our supplier tested both the Hi-Viz Dacron line and a widely used white nylon guideline found on reels, using the same method for each test. The results show both have several hundred pounds of breaking strength, although the Hi-Viz line is stronger. Frankly, both are more than strong enough for diving purposes.
