Cortland® Master Braid™ is gaining recognition for superior strength and feel among savvy anglers, and Cortland Ice Master™ Braid line utilizes several common technologies to provide exceptional performance in this specialized market category.

Ice Master 8 Braid capitalizes on proprietary technology and over 100 years of USA braiding experience. Ice Master 8 Braid is arguably among the highest performing ultra-light braids on the market and is the most premium ice braid that Cortland has ever produced. Precision-woven with 8 tiny carriers of Spectra® fibers for incredible strength-per-diameter and smoothness, this thin, ultra-flexible braid hangs absolutely straight even with the lightest of ice jigs. Utilizing FiberTech™ technology, Ice Master 8 Braid sheds water well and has the perfect amount of body. As a result, this braid features an incredible strength to diameter ratio – the 1-pound diameter has an 8-pound knot strength, the 2-pound diameter has a 15-pound knot rating and the 4-pound diameter has a 20-pound knot strength rating. This high-performance line is available in two unique colors: Icicle Gray to blend with the icy waters and Cortland’s famous Bronze.
