12 Braid Technology: Daiwa has invented 12-strand braid
 +strong, + compact, + smooth

Strength + 120%

The traction resistance of Daiwa 12-strand braid is 120% that of Daiwa 8-strand version. The gains in terms of strength are even more marked compared to a conventional PE 4-strand braid. The perfectly round cross-section of our 12-strand braid offers even lower friction and heightened, long-lasting knot strength.

Sensitivity +130%
The stretch of Daiwa 12-strand braid has been reduced by around 130% compared with Daiwa 8-strand version. This low stretch diminishes any irregularities on the surface of the braid and heightens its sensitivity. The smoother surface reduces friction against the guides – leaving you with a crystal clear reading of the water.

Lifespan +172%
Daiwa 12-strand braid boasts 172% higher wear resistance than Daiwa 8-strand version. Daiwa uses exclusive treatment methods, including UVF (Ultra Volume Fibre) and Evo silicon, which are applied to an ultra-squeezed 12-strand braid. This markedly increases wear resistance.

Casting distance +118%
The coefficient of dynamic friction has been improved by 118% compared to Daiwa 8-strand braid. Thanks to the perfectly round cross section and the UVF + Evo silicon treatment, this braid offers seriously low friction, cutting through the wind and gliding through the guides.
