Siglon PE ADV (advanced) takes the original Siglon PEx8 to the next level thanks to the latest manufacturing process, making it superior in its water repellency, strength, slickness and abrasion resistance.
Sunline compared the water repellency between Siglon PEx8 and Siglon PE ADV. When a water drop was placed on to the original Siglon PE the drop soaks into the line (which is normal for PE lines). However Siglon PE ADV shows an excellent repellency due to a special resin that penetrates deep into the fibre. This technology is the first in the industry which Sunline named Deep Resin Technology (DRT). Due to the special processing, the water sheds from the line easily, so the line is unlikely to become heavy. That means you can make a long cast every time. Also, the line doesn't stick to the rod. As a result, you can continue fishing without stress.
Siglon PEx8 absorbs water, but Siglon PE ADV shows an excellent water repellency.
Sunline tested Siglon PE ADV (#0.8). The strength shown on the packaging is 4.5kg (avg.) and 6kg (max.) and they found that as expected there is a bit of 'width' in strength, but the strength reached the maximum 6kg easily.
In the slickness test, Siglon PE ADV 12lb (#1) was compared with Siglon PEx8 12lb (#1). The ADV showed an overwhelming difference in the 10g sliding weight test. The slickness has been improved by about 25%.
This is a big advantage of DRT processing. Due to its high abrasion resistance it is possible to fish near cover like timber or rocks where it's difficult to fish with normal PE lines. DRT processing also means the ADV line is stiffer than Siglon PEx8. With a soft PE line troubles such as entanglement can occur but troubles are reduced with ADV's moderate stiffness. This makes it possible to cast deep into of the bush.
