DGX Hi-Viz Orange Dacron Line on Bulk Spools Detail of Hi-Viz Orange Dacron Line Hi Viz Line
  • Ultra high visibility abrasion resistant line
  • Slightly negative buoyancy resists twisting & kinking
  • Braided for strength - high tenacity - minimal stretch
  • Flat wound so MORE length will fit on your reel
  • Stronger than #36 nylon line - thinner than #24 nylon

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.

Traditional braided white nylon line is difficult to see in open water, but our Hi-Viz Blaze Orange Dacron line stands out like neon, allowing easier line management with nearby divers. The durable orange of our Hi-Viz Dacron line also remains the vibrant blaze color over time, unlike the "wash-out" fading typical of ordinary nylon cave line.

View the twenty second video above of two divers on their stop during a training dive to watch the Hi-Viz Blaze Orange 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.

    Another excellent peoduct

    I have this on. 3 reels and decided to respool all my reels with it. I also like the fact you can splice and eye into the end instead of tying a knot which reduces the break strength. Splicing also provides a cleaner look. I could keep going on about this product but they sum it nicely on their page. This is another great product and a great price. It no wonder DGX is my go to shop.

    Good stuff. It's a little slippery compared to regular nylon but that's just how Dacron is. Good price and excellent service & shipping as always

Orange or White, which is better?

The choice of orange or white has been studied by human factors experts for other applications such as signage and transportation. While we are not aware of any studies for diving applications, those other studies and our own experience provide good guidance for our recommendations. Choose blaze orange for maximum visibility in open-water daytime conditions, choose pure white for absolute maximum contrast in the low-light conditions of cave diving. In our opinion, your best compromise choice for all conditions is the orange color.
