Berkley X5 Braid or X9 Braided Fishing Line
Superline is now an angling standard term for braids of outstanding performance across all measurable criteria. Berkley has been a braid leader and innovator for years now, and they haven't stopped developing new and better braids that will perform for you at the highest standard in all applications, in all conditions.
Berkley X5 braid or X9 Braid delivers outstanding strength, zero stretch and reliable abrasion resistance. With Berkley X5/X9 Braid, the biggest improvement comes in casting performance. Thanks to an extra strand running down the centre, the outer strands are pushed out to deliver a much rounder line profile.
The round profile is the feature that delivers casting performance. Firstly, the round profile passes through your guides with far less friction. The result is longer, more accurate casts. Secondly, the rounder profile packs more uniformly onto your spool. There is less chance of casting loops forming, and losing cast distance though line peeling off the spool unevenly.
The added bonus is that a rounder profile delivers stronger knots that are far easier to tie.
Berkley X5/X9 Braided fishing line for sale now is available in 2 great colours. Flame green is perfect when high visibility is required. Crystal or white colour provides a more natural alternative for when stealth is the mode of attack.
While a little pricier than other braids, Berkley X5/X9 Braid is a superline. It delivers the highest level of performance across all criteria and is a line for the pro or more discerning angler, where line selection is critical to their application.
Fishing for the toughest fish requires the best of lines. Spool up with Berkley X5 braid or X9 Braid for sale now.
