Break load is an average result achieved under laboratory conditions, in straight-line pulls with constantly increasing tensile loads. These conditions are rarely duplicated in actual use. Do not use breaking load for design or rating purposes, use safe working load figures The breaking load is determined by taking the load that each line in a sample of five breaks and then dividing by five to determine the average breaking load. Break loads may vary slightly for individual reels, but safe working loads will not.
