Abrasion all about the same meaning they all suck.Reverendo wrote:... with great castability, and decent abrasion resistance.
PP Super Slick?
Super Slick V2
Daiwa J-Braid 8 & Grand
Castability Sufix Nanobraid is at the top for me and (except for s8s2v and grand) Ive used all you mentioned and a few others.
Favorite no stretch spinning reel line is Nanofil but its not a braid.
same with j-braid (6 and 8lb) casts great and handles well but again little abrasion resistance. i bought a spool of 6lb j-braid grand but have not tested it yet.
super slick wasnt that good to me, lots of fraying, didnt cast as well as the above 2, i did like the brown color though! havent tried the v2 yet.
832 was good line, i used it for a few years in 6 and 10lb, its stiff as hell out of the package but with a little use it breaks in nicely, doesnt cast as well as jbraid or nanobraid, but its not bad, i just prefer the other 2 so i dont use 832 any more .
samurai was always too expensive for me to try. the one expensive braid i did try (seaguar smakdown) was ok but it had a tendency to knot up on me, something i havent had a problem with in other braids, and there was no picking the knots out, it tended to be a very tight knot.
i tend to use nanobraid and jbraid now, i am trying out the new berkley x9 this spring, spooled it up on a couple reels but its been too cold to get out and try it since i got it.
It's Dyneema tradename renamed as IZANAS.Reverendo wrote:I’m going to have to take a closer look at the Nanobraid and Nanofil as I’m not familiar with either. I’m also curious about the new Daiwa JBraid 8x GRAND. Supposedly it’s not a dyneema based line, but a brand new material.

Sufix 832 has proven itself best to me though. I have used the 8lb, 10lb, 15lb, and even 20lb on spinning throughout the years. The Sufix lines are thicker though, I would normally use a 10lb braid on ML spinning, but stepped down to 8lb and 6lb would have been fine. Their line is thicker and holds strength well because of this; stepping down in test helped me cast equally to other brands.
Never had a problem with 10lb 832 connected to 6-8lb leadersadam lancia wrote:How does everyone find the lighter braids holding up at the leader knot? I find that, especially with lighter braids, the line deteriorates really quickly. Would a 4 strand braid hold up better, or is it strictly a function of the light braid?
