braid with feeling of plastic or silicon

Post by ben64 » Tue Jan 11, 2011 5:07 am

Hi :D


I'm loooking for a 4 braid PE line ; a friend of me has given me an unknow spool of a wonderful white braid ; it has a coating very very efficient ( in time and abrasion ) which give the feeling of a " hard and very smooth " braid which allow fishing in new spots because this 30lb approximately can cast like a 20lb and can resist to the rocks like another break ; Since 20 years I've never seen that .

I've tried the Toray Seabass but it is not the same , Toray is too soft ( good for arena but not for hard rock fishing needed long cast too ) ; the same with sunline Deep One 30Lb or Avani MaxPower 20lb ( a few elastic ) ; here is pictures which show the diference , unknown braid to the left and the Toray on the right :

It seems each strand have a coating which keeps the micro fiber very compact .

I'm looking to the YGK REAL SPORTS G-Soul PE but in 20lb ; do you think G-Soul PE is a " hard " braid or it is a braid closer to the "soft" Toray Seabass ?


Thanks by advance,
