DAIWA: Time For A Change In Color(s)

DAIWA’s new J-Braid Grand x8 maintains exemplary performance, adds color-change metering.

Cypress, CA – There’s much ado about fishing line…and for good reason. It’s the ultimate link between angler and quarry. And DAIWA’s established J-Braid x8 Grand is the chosen link for many casters, trollers, and droppers – freshwater and saltwater. The key is J-Braid x8 Grand’s fine diameter, which 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 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, its sensitivity is unmatched, and knot-strength exceptional. 

And now, DAIWA introduces J-Braid Grand x8 Multi Color, measured line for applications like deep-dropping, live bait rigging, and jigging where calibrating line-length is often crucial. Color changes occur every 10-meters (33-feet) for precise calculation of how much line you have out.  

DAIWA’s J-Braid Grand x8 Multi Color will be an instant hit with coastal anglers employing the harrier technique – vertical slow pitch jigging with specialty rods like DAIWA’s new HARRIER Super Light Jigging

“Harrier practitioners will appreciate the water slicing performance of J-Braid Grand x8 Multi Color in 15- and 20-pound test,” said DAIWA Marketing Director Marc Mills. “Its exceptionally slim diameter minimizes the bowing experienced with heavier lines. Puts the feel back in your fishing.” These lighter pound tests also let you really fill the spool. 

Heavier strengths of J-Braid Grand x8 Multi Color will find favor with deep droppers fishing heavy jigs and bottom rigs, too – folks operating out in that 500 to 1,500-foot range. There, they’ll spool with 50-pound plus on big spinning reels like DAIWA’s Saltist MQ and CERTATE LW or winding with power-assisted reels such as members of the DAIWA TANACOM series.  

Trollers, too – saltwater and freshwater – can keep tabs on how much line is behind the boat with J-Braid Grand x8 Multi Color. Hook a fish with “five colors out,” and get right back to the money length.

J-Braid Grand x8 Multi Color is available in 15, 20, 30, 40, 50, 65, 80, 100, and 120-lb. weights. Comes in 550 and 3,300-yard spools.
