If it were to be significantly less then it's pound test in weight; then wouldn't it be possible to suspend it attached out in space if what it was attached to was another planet of whatever? Is that thinking outside the box? Ok that may be right; but say you take that same build that you use for the better brand and use silk instead; what then?

And also there is the fact that the higher you go; the less gravity.

Uh,I think it would break.
Don't know exactly what you are "fishing" for here.

Maybe something like this??

My 1500yrd spool of 200lb weights about 8 lbs so 1 mile= 1760yrds 9lbs per mile x 34miles = 306lbs

Seems to me, by that calculation, 200 pound test wouldn't hold itself. It would break.

I understand you are talking about 250 pound test in your OP, but I think it wouldn't be much different.

Well I don't think the line weight would matter that much. The pound test would measure how much force it can sustain. With good line management though I've seen 400lb grouper being hauled up by less that 200lb test. If the line has to be tight then yea the weight would come into play.

Space fishing,the line is weightless and at that temp most likely brittle.
