Daiwa JBraid Grand 30lb Braid

Daiwa’s premium braid goes to another level with the J-Braid Grand. A premium 8-strand PE, J-Braid Grand is made from an advanced raw material (IZANAS) and uses a technologically advanced construction method. J-Braid Grand is J-Braid’s strongest, most abrasion resistant line ever. Four times more abrasion resistant than other braided lines, J-Braid Grand has a best-in-class short pitch fibre construction that significantly reduces line damage and failure to dramatically increase abrasion resistance and straight-line pulling strength. A short pitch construction also aids in creating an even rounder profile for optimum line performance. Rounder profile braids tangle less and perform better, making J-Braid Grand our best performing J-Braid ever.

Made in Japan and available in sizes ranging from 6lb (0.6PE) to 120lb (PE12) in high-visibility island blue & depth-marked multicolour. J-Braid Grand is the smoothest and best performing J-Braid we’ve ever made.
