J-Thread FC X-Link (Cross Link) FC is a totally revolutionary fluorocarbon line developed exclusively by Daiwa.

The X-Link process is a game-changer for the fishing line industry. The X-Link method alters the molecular structure of the line itself, bonding individual particles on a chemical level. This change in the chemical composition results in a line which is much stronger for its given diameter. The X-Link method also produces a line which is incredibly limp and supple, resulting in a more manageable line and a much higher knot retention.

J-Thread FC X-Link is made in Japan and sets a new benchmark for leader material in Australia. 


  • Measured Diameter: .375mm (-1.83% on claimed .382mm)
  • Measured Breaking Strain: 24.78lbs (+123.9% on claimed 20lbs)
  • Abrasion Breaking Strain: 10.98lbs (44.3% of measured max break)

Breaking strain indicates that this line is slightly underrated.

Tensile Strength (144749psi) is EXCEPTIONAL, ranks No: 1

Abrasion resistance as a percentage of maximum break is BELOW average @ 44.3% (average 56%).
