All braided lines have worse knot strength than monofilament, and knots for braids typically require more turns and wraps than regular knots. Good knots tied with Platypus Lo-Stretch™ give 100% knot strength, excellent knots tied in braid give 85% knot strength.
Platypus Lo-Stretch™ is more cost effective than Braid, roughly one third the price of Braid.
