Lots of options around. E.g. daiwa, YGK, varivas, sunline.

Depends how much you want to spend, how thin you need it and whether you want meter markings or just lots of 10 or 20.

I mainly use Sunline for the lighter stuff and Varivas for the heavy stuff. Horses for courses. Varivas, YGK and Sunline is probably the best available in Oz

the money isn't the problem, so factor that out. i looked at YGK but the jigman only gets down to 40 pound. Honsu do you guy sell sunline at oceanside because i don't often see it in any of the fishing shops! catchalittle what is the yamoto stuff like because i haven't heard much about it before?

I got some really light

Mon, 2009-01-12 17:07

I got some really light sunline braid (12lb depth marked) from gotone who ordered it in for me. Honsu sometimes can as well.

Campbells have varivas, and should be able to order what they dont have in stock in.

Someone should have Daiwa SW sensor in stock but its 'standard thickness'. I've got accudepth on my 50lb and for the price I recon its pretty good. Round and depth every meter.

I fish 30lb bionic braid.

Mon, 2009-01-12 17:51

I fish 30lb bionic braid. Have done since living in the NT. Used it for barra, jiggn for span macks, castn for queenies,gts. Bullet proof stuff. Takes a couple of trips to loose a bit of the surface scuzz off though.

Chief the Yamoto is a good braid you can buy it in the standard blue colour from most tackle stores in different lbs and the multi coloured jig braid in the same made in Japan low diametre and low strech it has done me well and is priced nicely I bought a spool recently from one of the CA stores it may have been Joondalup or Nedlands,the other braid that I have used and not had a problem with is the Black Magic it is also low diametre and multi coloured great line hope this helps you mate

Ask reuben about the yamatoyo PE 3 we reckon it broke around 50lb on a huge fish the other week. Knots really well too the bimini held and the line snapped off the spool instead

YGK Jigman Ultra

Mon, 2009-07-20 11:21

Try the YGK Jigman Ultra in PE3, nice thin, supple braid and strong as buggery! it breaks at around 47lb. Have been using it for a while now and can't fault it.

I've never even seen PE3

Mon, 2009-07-20 13:42

I've never even seen PE3 ultra jigman. Only seems to be available in PE4+ (here at least). Can get varivas or saltiga sensor which are around 50lb and PE3. Though, if you want 30lb, running 50lb line doesnt make a lot of sense when you can run something 30lb and <PE2. Though we're quite limited in good quality light jigging braids here. I know you can order saltiga sensor in PE2 (35lb) though.

We have it readily available in stores here in NZ in PE3 - you can also purchase it online and shipped to Australia from www.jigsdirect.com
