The diameter is 0.15mm, and the breaking load is 7.9kg... Is it possible?
Yes it's possible. Fireline Crystal 6lbs is listed at .15mm and breaks around 16.55 lbs. Tracer braid or fused, in fact, all of the line made by Berkeley has very good S/D ratio since it's the same underlying dyneema just spun or fused and coated differently. Your line is a European market line so the ABS is listed correctly and not underestimated like USA market. But your knot strength will be far far below that unless you go FG or PR knot.
But the actual measured diameter is closer to .20mm. In fact if you check Paulus website, all of Berkeley line that are listed as 6 lbs has an ABS of 17-19 lbs and the listed diameter is .15mm. Paulus just found the actual diameter to be thicker than stated and found almost all of them to be around .20mm. And my sample of Fireline crystal 6lbs came in at .1955 mm.
