Daiwa J-Braid

Braid is perfect for flipping for bass, working corks for trout, battling shallow reds, and snatching offshore species off the rigs and wrecks, and there are a lot of options on the market. Daiwa’s J-Braid offers all the advantages in a tightly weaved package at a price point that will make you smile.

J-Braid is made of the finest materials from Japan, from which eight strands of fibers are tightly woven to create a perfectly round profile. This process results in a much stronger, softer and smoother line that is more sensitive while allowing more distance on the cast.

There are two options: x4 and x8. The former is the tightest weave, which makes it more abrasive and perfect for cutting through vegetation — which means you can wrestle fish out of grass easier.

The x8 version has less memory and is softer, so it’s quieter moving through your rod’s eyes.

The x4 is available up to 80-pound-test, while x8 is available up to 150-pound-test.

They are available in dark green, chartreuse and multi-color formats.

One hundred sixty-five yards of x4 costs just $10.99, and 155 yards of x8 retails for $14.99. Filler spools also are available.
