BRAID lines revolutionised the fishing market by delivering more sensitivity and improved casting distance for multiple fishing styles. It is generally available in both 4 and 8-strand braided lines and Majorcraft has both.
As the name implies, 4 and 8 refer to the number of microfilaments weaved together. The difference is in the end product, with 8 strand being smoother and rounder. This is because the fibres are woven differently to 4 strand and the bundles are smaller, with more of an even circumference along the length of the line or weave. It produces a supple, smooth line that is less likely to sing through the guides. 8 strand is generally more expensive to produce. 4 strand is regarded as robust and less supple but better able to deal with the demands of offshore bait fishing for instance. It is also cost effective for a wide range of activities.
The new series from Majorcraft covers general angling and squid fishing. The Dangan Braid’s original yarn is a super strong, polyethylene fibre made by Tobyo, which is custom twisted in a Japanese factory to develop a braid with a lower stretch and higher sensitivity. The Dangan comes in a range of strengths and is user friendly for beginners as well as having the performance needed for lure casting anglers.
