KastKing 13x Finesse 15lb Braid

  • INCREDIBLY SMOOTH 13-STRAND BRAID – KastPro 13X Finesse braided fishing lines change fishing for spinning reel and baitcasting presentations. 13 strands of ultra-high molecular UHMPE fibers are crossed 36 times every inch (36 PPI) creating the smoothest, most supple and longest casting braided line for these finesse techniques.
  • ULTRA-THIN DIAMETER – KastPro 13X Finesse fishing lines are 75% smaller in diameter than a similar pound test monofilament line. This super thin diameter gives you the advantage of a thin diameter for finesse techniques, but with greater strength, line capacity and abrasion resistance. KastPro 13X Finesse braid is a great casting fishing line to use as a saltwater braided line or surf fishing line.
  • SUPERIOR KNOT STRENGTH – Superior Knot Strength – KastPro 13X Finesse delivers fantastic line to leader and line to lure knot strength, so you can be 100% confident in your ability to set the hook hard. This extremely sensitive braid line ensures you feel even the lightest bites. Zero stretch makes for quick hook penetration.
  • UHMPE FIBERS STRONGER THAN STEEL– KastKing KastPro 13X Finesse is made using 100% Ultra-High Molecular UHMPE fibers which have a strength to weight ratio that is 10x stronger than steel. The 13-strand construction produces a smoother braid to deliver long, quiet casts and has zero memory and almost zero stretch.
  • STRONG AND ABRASION RESISTANT – KastPro 13X Finesse is the finest finesse fishing braided line available, and is unbelievably strong and abrasion resistant. You can fish this line around rocks, trees and other structure with complete confidence. Its specific gravity of .97 is lighter than water enabling it to float when needed. Available in High Viz Chartreuse, High Viz White and stealthy Moss Green braided line on 150 yard spools from 6 lb to 30 lb test.
