He found it at the flea market I think in unlabeled spools.
Hold on...
Yeah! I just checked the comments. Found at flea market. Plain black spools.
I found Daiwa 1lb test on eBay out of China, so I'm going to try it next Spring.

You want the .6 line.
It should be 1lb test.
Its diameter .128
that second link has more colors.

It's hard to tell from this link because you can't do a close up, but it looks like none of these lines are actual 1# lines.

... their ".6" line is listed at about 6# breaking strain. They also list a ".4" line, but it's hard to believe that would be lighter than 4# line.

I'm not trying to be picky. I'm just always on the lookout for a good UL line. There seems to be very little "truth in advertising" when it comes to line.

That line's listed breaking strain is 2.65 kilos, or almost six pounds.

My trying to tie a knot would even break that line. Not to mention I would not even be able to see that thin of a line to run it through the hook eye.

Itís not 1# test. I fish with some 1.4# test max........polyester mono.......no stretch as in zero stretch.....it sinks. Got it out of Japan and is guaranteed to break at no greater than 1.4# test. Heíís a great fisherman......I follow him on YouTube like many others......but youíre not going to find any 1# test here in the USA. At one time NanoFil put out some 1# test braid. They quit making it but I still have a spool of it. I used an UL rod Thursday with some of the 1.4# test to land a boat load of 11 inch brook trout. The line and rod made for a fun day. I have also used this line for crappie. It is very hard to see and I would have to check on the diameter but best I remember it is .098 mm. That is right at the diameter of a a human hair of someone with thick hair......bottom line it is hard to see and hard to tie.....but it is a blast to fish with.

In my never ending search for line I used McCoy several years back. McCoy 2# test has a diameter of .006. That translates to .152 mm. Itís breaking strength is right at 3# and maybe a little more.

Winter time deep water fishing on Lake Fork. I fish 2lb FireLine Crystal braid. Fish are real deep, I can feel the bite better and no stretch. So when I set the hook it comes up rather than stretch a foot like mono does. I only use it in the deep water though.

It was good line when made in the USA, not so much now that it’s made in China.

Years ago I used 2# line. It is fun to cast but I always had a bass or some other more aggressive fish break it while crappie fishing.

Iíve been using 2# test and UL rods almost exclusively for 10 years now. While I love catching bluegill and crappie I also chase smallmouth.....KY bass....and white bass with the same setup. Iíll average around 1000 smallmouth a year......many of them going 21 inches. I donít post those trips here as it is a crappie forum. I will burn the road up going to Dale Hollow in the spring and for about a 2 month period I will catch anywhere from 20-80 smallmouth in a day.
It is rare for me to break a fish off using 2# test. It is not as difficult to land big fish on light line as people think. I also...not by choice.....get into a lot of buffalo in the spring that weigh as much as 15 pounds while crappie fishing some places.

I have fished with 2 lb test line many times. I can't imagine crappie fishing with 1 lb test unless I am fishing bridge pilings. All my other spots are full of brush so it would not be a wise move. I may try it with white bass since they are a open water fish around here. Using 2 lb test will force you to use your drag correctly. I best has been a 9 lb hybrid on 4 lb test line. That fish really tested my patience.

I use different light lines for different situations. There is a TWRA lake that has a big population of 6-7 inch bluegill.....I use the 1.4# test with a supper UL rod. If I am fishing for white bass......or smallmouth at Dale Hollow I will use the SOS 2# test line....lot of stretch and it is not a true 2# test.....like most other 2# test lines sold in the states the breaking strength is above 2#. I will hopefully be fishing below Nickajack Dam the day after Christmas and will also use the SOS 2# line there.....will be a lot of white bass in the area. I also have some 2.4# test that is a very small diameter that I will use when fishing for trout....gives me great casting distance for the 1/64 ounce Trout Magnet. As you say none of this is much good fishing around wood. I fish a lot of bodies of water but there is not much wood in any of them. I canít see anyone fishing true 1# test. The 1.4# I use is as low as I want to go. Even 2# test at exactly 2# breaking strength is very easy to break with the slightest misstep. I will order some more of the polyester mono though but this time in a 2# or 2.5# test as I love the fact the sensitivity of it is off the charts and it sinks.

Ande tournament green 2# is Guaranteed to not break over two pounds.
Iíve been using 2# P-Line original blue , and Vicious hi vis 2# .
I also use a lot of 4# Silverthread an40 , it casts small jigs , almost as good as 2# lines . Gillchaser

I know what you mean !! My best fish on 4lb test was a 6lb Largemouth, a 10lb Striper, and a 12lb Tiger Muskie. Wasn't using the "top of the line" equipment, either, so it's a good thing I know how to "backwind" a spinning reel !! :ThumbsUp

https://youtu.be/LIwS7fsoGI4Depends on how it is rated. IGFA class records require line to break at no more than advertised or claimed breakage point. Most other line is supposed to break at the claimed point or higher. 17 pound Cajun red line breaks at about 90 pounds when you are trying to break off from a rock or limb.
