Owner Broad PE Kizuna : PE 1.5 Braid

ALB Construction – Anti Loosening Braided Construction. ALB construction is a unique and special braiding construction to provide best strength and flexibility at same time like no other! Several pieces of line are twisted to same direction to be consisting of one line just like rope.

Normally, all of those pieces of lines are twisted to same direction of rotation. But ALB construction is creating mixing direction of rotations depends on the position of line to be tighter braided. And it doesn’t get loosen anyhow. ALB construction is made as short-pitch braid, but intentional superb stretch creation which give you more super breaking strength and best flexibility on braided line.
