This is a very interesting product.

Along the line's length, there is a 32 inch section for every 20 feet of main line that is essentially a integrated higher strength line. When you tie off your lures or hooks in this section, it has a higher absolute knot strength that if it was tied in the remaining lower strength line section. Keep in mind (kinda obvious), if there is a force on the line that is higher than the main line's strength the line will break there, even though the knot section is a stronger portion of line.

This product would in a way compete with the benefits of using hollow line loop knots (which are 100% line strength knots), which is what I prefer prior to this products release. However, hollow line is not a popular option and this line might appeal to more.

Further, there would be a mouth abrasion benefit inherent in that 32" section if there is enough of it above the knot.

The draw-back of course is if you get cut off or if the 32" section is damaged, you have to remove another 20 feet to get to the next knot section. This could be a concern if line capacity is an issue on smaller reels.

It does come in strengths up to 100lb, which should cover both catfish and peacock applications for most.
