The PE standard of measurement is based on a numbering system known as gouw, the system that the Japanese originally used to measure the diameter of silk thread. This measurement system has since been applied to monofilament and braided fishing lines. The "PE" stands for Polyethylene, the fibre used to make Dyneema and Spectra braided lines.
