PE braid

Sat, 2006-09-09 12:23

The Japs measure in PE not pounds . PE is more on the dia of the line not the breaking strain .

Well thats what I have found in my short time working with the stuff.

I'm sure a more knowledgable person will correct me .

When it comes to jigging and casting lines, I've found I can generally count on the numbers to correspond to the number times 10, as in PE3号 = 30 lb test. There is some variance between brands, but I've never seen it to be more than a few pounds more. If there is a particulat brand you want the specific pound tests for feel free to drop me a line and I'll look into it for you. I agree that an 8 braid is the stuff to use. Daiwa's is pricey so I use a few less known brands that do just as good a job. What are the most popular brands right now in Australia?

You're looking at well over

Sun, 2006-09-10 16:46

You're looking at well over 300 meters of braid and most spools of braid start at around $60 for 300 yards.

I'm sure someone else can give you a better indication.

Herculine multi coloured

Sun, 2006-09-10 17:12

I have heard a new one is out or comming out called Hurculine multi coloured braid , might be something to look at as they recon it will be near half the price of other braids ????

Just hearsay from me tho .

I heard 300m of 30 lb would be around 30 to 40 bucks .

Honsu / shizz / anyone can you confirm ?????

The new Sufix Herculine is a nice looking line, very smooth and brightly coloured. Not sure about the prices but probably not half the price of other PE colored lines.

not sure of the price, but i heard its cheap. I wouldnt think 30-40 bucks tho, because the normal matrix pro is 45-60 bucks a spool. Id imagine multi colored would be a more if anything.
