Hi-Viz Chartreuse Line is better than the generic nylon line commonly used in diving applications because it is very easy to see and very durable.

Out-of-stock for much of 2021, our original Hi-Viz braided polyester (aka Dacron) line was round. Returning to stock in March 2022, our new Hi-Viz line is a 'flat' style braid that allows more line to be loaded on spools. We also took this opportunity to update the color from yellow to the safety standard yellow-green color named Chartreuse.

Bulk Spool Options
Bulk Spool Options Approximate Line Measurements Detail of Hi-Viz Chartreuse Dacron 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 Hi-Viz Line is a braided polyester (aka Dacron) material that costs a bit more than generic nylon, but this abrasion resistant high tenacity line has slightly negative buoyancy, resists kinking, and has minimal stretch. Our Hi-Viz line is stronger than #36 nylon line, yet is flat, so you can load extra on the reel.

Traditional braided white nylon line is difficult to see in open water, but our Hi-Viz line stands out like neon, allowing easier line management with nearby divers. The durable Chartreuse (yellow-green) of our Hi-Viz line also remains the vibrant color over time, unlike the "wash-out" fading typical of ordinary nylon cave line. Hi-Viz Chartreuse is often used for best low-light visibility.

We are often asked 'What is the tested breaking strength?' Unfortunately, there are no standards for the test methodologies, so it's impossible to compare published ratings from different sources. Our supplier tested both our 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 our line is stronger. Frankly, both are more than strong enough for diving purposes.

Orange, Yellow, or White, which is better?

Chartreuse Firetruck

The choice of blaze orange, chartreuse (yellow-green) or pure white has been studied by human factors experts for other applications such as transportation signage and high-visibility clothing. 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 orange for maximum visibility in well lighted conditions, choose pure white for absolute maximum contrast in very low-light conditions. In our opinion, your best compromise choice for all conditions is the chartreuse yellow-green color.
