Today there are more and more people fishing in tournaments, and because we manufacture a lot of line that is International Game Fish Association (IGFA) certified, we’re often asked for breaking strength certification since most tournaments require this. A lot of fishermen ask if we use an Instron tester and in the past we have had to say no since we sent our line to an independent lab for testing. Now, we are able to state that we have our own Instron tester and able to do all of our own testing. ~Bernie Phaneuf - Woodstock Line President
