Best 8 Strand Braided Fishing Line
At Fishing Superstore, we are passionate about all the things fishing related. That’s why we pay special attention to choosing the top-quality fishing gear that will serve you for the longest time and make a good catch. Our selection of 8 strand braid fishing lines is no exception - smooth, silent and well castable they will become your staple.
First of all, what is an 8 strand braid fishing line? It is the type of fishing line that is made of 8 strands of polyethylene fibres, which is different from, for example, monofilament and fluorocarbon lines that are usually made of a single strand of plastic fibre.
Here are a few reasons why our 8 strand braid fishing lines would be a great addition to your fishing tackle collection:
- Strong. Our lines from this selection are made using high-performance and durable fibre that is braided in a way that makes the line super strong and abrasion-resistant. Whether you are fishing for a small snapper or you are after a large bass fish, you can be sure that the line will serve you good.
- Convenient. The thing about 8 strand braid fishing lines is that they are very sensitive to even the lightest fishing bites, have a low line memory, do not stretch and, as we have mentioned above, are abrasion resistant, which makes them a great fishing equipment piece that can be used over and over.
- Versatile. A great aspect of 8 strand braid fishing line is that it can be used for many fishing situations: in muddy water, when trying to get a large fish out of a heavy cover, topwater fishing, beach fishing, deep water fishing - you name it! Another thing to remember is that even though there might be some drawbacks to 8 strand braid fishing line, like, for example, its visibility, it can always be balanced out by, in this example, trying to pick the right colour or fishing for more aggressive types of fish.

Frequently Asked Questions
It is not a question of which is better, but rather which one fits your fishing scenario better. 8 strand braid fishing lines provide a smooth and silent cast, but are quite visible in the water. The 4 strand braid fishing line is much rougher, creates more noise and friction, but is superb when it comes to bottom fishing. So, in general, it all comes down to a question of priorities. From our personal experience, if the visibility of the line is not a concern for you, we suggest using 8 strand braid line in most situations.
First of all, consider the type of fish that you are after and assess how strong you need your braided fishing line to be. From there, choose the fishing line that will not break during the process.
Castability is another thing that needs to be taken into account when choosing a braided fishing line. For the farthest casting, we suggest picking 8 strand braided fishing line, as its smoothness allows casting it very far, which enables many different fishing styles.
Think about how stretchy you need your braided line to be. For some people, less stretch and consequent higher sensitivity to fish bite are more desirable, while for some the shock-absorbing aspect of stretchy braided fishing lines is a higher priority.
Another thing to remember when choosing a braided fishing line is line memory, but unlike the other aspects that we have mentioned, this factor is quite straightforward - the less line memory is better, as it guarantees a better line shape retention over time and the line will serve you for a longer time.
