Braid Recommendation
« on: Thu 20 Jul 11:56 2017 »
Hey Guys,

Tonight i am going up to get some new braid for my new Saragosa 6000.

Does anyone have any recommendations for braid that they have had good or bad experiences with.

It will be used for primarily lure fishing and casting.

Planning on running 300m of 30lb / PE3 line.

So far i have looked at:

- Shimano Kairiki
- Diawa J Braid
- Sunline Super PE

Thanks !

Jason

I'm yet to find a braid in fine diameters I like better than Bionic, just hard to get these days.

    Go 8strand and then a specific "spinning reel" specification then 10% above what you can afford.  Suffix or fireline are hard to beat IMHO

    I have a hard time going past Daiwa braids myself, the high end ones are
    very thin and smooth as well.

    Cheers Jason

    If you want fine diameter , have a look at the Shimano Ocea , pretty sure its the finest on the market, I 'm slowly converting all my reels over to it.Been using it for a good 6 months now and have not had a single tangle . Quality product but its not cheap.The Sunline Super PE is also a great braid.

    Thanks for all the input guys. The boys at Jones Tackle on Gympie road are by far the best experience i have had in a tackle store.

    The guys pulled out half a dozen spools of line onto the counter and did a side by side comparison and got me to feel and see the difference between all of them and they gave me some tips on things to look for.

    Ended up going with the Shimano Kairiki PE3 braid for my new Saragosa 6000. Managed to fill the spool with 300m of it! Cant wait to test it out.

    Also picked up a new Rod............. Shimano Grappler 73ML 7'3" 2pc PE3 15-60g Lure Weight

    (Jones Tackle don't have their own online store, so the link is from Motackle)

    It should be a pretty sweet combo!!

    See you on the water!

    Jason
