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.
