Shimano Grappler Braid - Multi-Colour Braided Line
When a brute-strength fish is on the line, having a superline that doesn't disappoint is beneficial. Shimano Grappler Braid is engineered specifically for the huge stopping power needed to land hard-fighting species offshore. This braid utilises advanced IZANAS PE8 fibre technology and innovative construction to handle even the most intense fights against fast-running fish.
The IZANAS PE8 fibre weave generates incredible power to turn fish and avoid getting spooled. Even under extreme pressure, Grappler Braid retains smoothness for flawless casting inshore and zero friction offshore.
Shimano integrates Heat Sink technology into Grappler Braid, making it virtually impervious to heat damage from sizzling runs. Their unique VT construction method creates an incredibly round, smooth surface to prevent wind knots and backlashes when casting light lures.
Optimal Strengths for Any Situation
Shimano Grappler Braid comes in a few sizes to suit inshore and offshore fishing. The lighter 16lb option is ideal for working inshore grounds. Step up to the stronger 20-50lb models for deep jigging or bouncing offshore and battling big brutes around structure.
The highly visible multi-colour options let anglers monitor the action of their lure on the drop. This feedback is especially useful when vertical jigging or bouncing rigs along the bottom. Precision control over the smallest movements leads to more hookups.
Cutting-Edge Japanese Technology
Grappler utilises exclusive IZANAS PE8 fibres and advanced VT construction technology. The IZANAS fibres and precision weaving result in unmatched strength, smoothness, abrasion resistance and reliability compared to other braids.
The integrated Heat Sink coating is another example of Shimano's cutting-edge materials technology. By dispersing heat along the line length, Grappler prevents localised damage during screaming runs by fast species. The superline retains its optimal condition to keep anglers in control.
Superior Handling and Castability
The 8-carrier construction gives Grappler silky smooth handling and casting characteristics. The ultra-fine fibres are woven under extreme tension to maximise density. This results in an incredibly round profile that shoots through guides with minimal friction.
By minimising backlashes and wind knots, Grappler allows anglers to achieve greater distance with pinpoint accuracy. Less untangling time means more time with the lure in the strike zone. Even in strong winds, Grappler maintains stability for precise presentations.
Gain the Winning Edge
When going toe-to-toe with fast, powerful species, Shimano Grappler Braid gives anglers the confidence to apply a heavy-handed drag and bulldog hard-fighting fish. The extreme strength of the IZANAS fibres allows anglers to take charge of the fight.
Whether chasing snapper in the snags or jigging reef donkeys offshore, the Shimano Grappler braid has the backbone and smoothness to handle many situations. Don't risk losing your dream fish on an inferior line – spool up with Shimano's advanced braid technology and be better positioned to gain the winning edge.
