F Test - KG Test



Tests were performed according to ISO Standard 2062:1993 which is accepted by EFTTA (European Fishing Tackle Trade Association).

At the tests CRT (Constant Rate of Travel) WOLPERT testing machine was used.

The sample with a grip to grip length of 500 mm was pulled at a constant speed of 500 mm/minute up to its brake.

The load recorded at the moment it breaks is the tensile strength.

In the case of the knot strength test the sample was pulled with a simple knot tied previously at the middle of the length.




F test figure does not confirm with tensile strength value measured in laboratory. F-TEST value shows the tensile strength

of the line under natural circumstances, while fish is exposed to buoyancy in water, it does not confirm with the

tensile strength value measured under artificial laboratory conditions
