Another German made fluorocarbon, we are not surprised that Cortland Precision is strong and stiff. Interestingly enough, Cortland mic’d out the exact same diameters as Climax in 2X, 4X, and 6X, suggesting it is the same material as Climax. If you are looking for the best price, Climax is a dollar cheaper a spool with an extra 3 meters.
Cortland’s fluorocarbon spools (also produced under Rio’s patented “Tippetmater” spools) do have a different style tippet tender than Climax. Instead of a strip of neoprene sewed together, Cortland’s tippet tender is very similar to Rio’s, stating what “X” six times.
