Cypress, CA – Line watching is an art. Only highly observant anglers can distill what’s happening beneath the surface by analyzing line behavior. They know a fish is taking when line slips away at an unusually fast rate. Perceptive anglers also appreciate line twitches. Those quick tics on an otherwise leisurely lure drop that signify something’s amiss. To satisfy this acuteness, Daiwa introduces J-Braid Grand x8 in an immensely visible Chartreuse color.
The stunningly bright line excels in other situations, too. Seeing, as well as manipulating line in low-light conditions is challenging. Line gets wrapped around rod guides, even the cleat on a dock or tiller if you can’t see nearby hazards. J-Braid x8 Grand in new Chartreuse color lends supplemental visibility when natural lighting wanes. Moreover, Chartreuse yields visibility in deeply stained and muddy water so you can see where your line enters the water.
Color aside, Daiwa’s established J-Braid x8 Grand is an exceptional performer. The minimal diameter line is composed of premium 8 carrier braid using only the finest materials from Japan. J-Braid Grand 8x is spun with the patented IZANAS™, a new state-of-the-art material that utilizes 8 carriers.
So, what are the benefits? For one, J-Braid Grand x8 is four times more abrasion resistant than the commonplace 4 carrier. Despite the added carriers, J-Braid Grand x8 maintains a narrow diameter and is well-bodied to lay smoothly on the spool.
Attributes don’t end there. J-Braid Grand x8 is famous for its long casts and silky line delivery from the reel. Moreover, it’s sensitivity is unmatched, and knot-strength exceptional.
To enter the element of invisibility, from a fish’s position, Daiwa recommends tying-in the appropriate length and weight of J-Fluoro Leader. Known for its invisibility, abrasion resistance and strength, the 100% fluorocarbon leader material is a favorite in both freshwater and saltwater.
J-Braid Grand x8 is available in 6, 8, 10, 15, 20, 30, 40, 50, 65 and 80-lb. weights. Available spool sizes are 150 yards (6 to 50-lb.), 300 yards (all weights) and 3,000-yard bulk spools (10 to 80-lb.).
Other Color Options
- A majestic blue tone with high visibility while incorporating water and sky contrast.
- Light gray and is visible in low-light but blends into the water color spectrum.
- Dark Green is preferred in situations where you tie directly to the hook or lure without a leader.
