SPIDERWIRE – THE ORIGINAL BRAID

The Spider brand was spawned in the labs of a California company called Safariland, a high-end manufacturer of – not fishing equipment – but law enforcement equipment.

Working with high-tech synthetics to produce bullet-proof vests, the Safariland research team headed by Neale Perkins and Scott O’Brien discovered that the gel-spun polyethylene fibers used in the vests were ideal for a wide range of applications.

One cool application was an amazing, super-strong fishing line, the likes of which hadn’t ever been seen in the sport before. After rigorous researching and in-depth testing of various formulations of the product, the team struck on the construction that became known as Spiderwire – and it was nothing less than the strongest, thinnest, most sensitive fishing line in the world.
