The Stren Timeline, from Nylon to Microbond and Beyond

From the innovation of nylon in 1938 came nothing short of a revolution in fishing line. Stren was created in 1958 and from that day this classic sport fishing line initiated the remarkable science of high-performance fishing line that continues uninterrupted today. The fact that the brand became a household name in fishing circles speaks volumes about the dependable performance Stren has delivered cast after cast, catch after catch.

From the first nylon monofilament, other discoveries and innovations bearing the Stren name quickly caught on: abrasion resistance, co-filament line, Magnathin technology, high-tensile High Impact line, Super Tough, Lumaflex, Easy Cast, Powerbraid, Lo-Vis, Sensor, Stren Extra Strength, Advanced Microbond Technology… and beyond into areas other manufacturers can’t match.

All of us at Stren are proud to be a part of the Pure Fishing family of industry-leading brands. Together with Berkley, Abu Garcia, Mitchell, Fenwick, Spiderwire and more, Stren makes fishing more enjoyable for more people, and that’s what it’s always been about.
