  • Daiwa J-Braid Grand x8 Dark Green is a state-of-the-art braided line made with IZANAS fiber.
  • Extremely strong and abrasion-resistant, yet soft, supple, and easy-to-spool too.
  • 8-carrier construction.
  • Dark green color works well for situations where you want a low-visibility line or want to run straight braid with no leader.
  • Available in 150 and 300 yard spools in test strengths ranging from 6 pound to 80 pound.

The ultimate braid in the J-Braid family, Daiwa J-Braid Grand x8 is some of the strongest and most abrasion-resistant 8-carrier braided fishing line ever put on the market. Yet, despite its durability, J-Braid Grand x8 is also extremely soft, supple, and easy-to-spool.

How is a fishing line with such remarkable characteristics possible? J-Braid Grand x8 is spun with IZANAS, a new, state-of-the-art, high-modulus fiber that is leaps and bounds stronger than any other fiber material on the market. Now, you may be asking yourself: "Hey, doesn't every fishing line claim to be the strongest, most supple line out there? How is this stuff any different?" And you wouldn't be wrong for wondering. Many a fishing line company has made such a claim with little, if any, evidence to support it. But the fine folks at Daiwa don't play like that: when they make a claim, they stick by it and back it up. And that's why in the graph below you can see that, when compared with other fiber materials on the market, nothing exhibits a strength index quite like IZANAS.

It's roughly four times stronger than polyester nylon (what most monofilament is made of), twice as strong as fluorocarbon, and is even stronger than aramid, a class of military- and aerospace-grade fibers that includes Kevlar (aka the stuff bulletproof vests are made of), among others.

Dark Green J-Braid Grand x8 is great for situations where you wish to employ a more natural presentation with a low-visibility line or run straight braid with no leader. Available in 150 and 300 yard spools in test strengths ranging from 6 pound to 80 pound.

See table below for full details on test strength and line diameter.

Love this line. Cast great and silky smooth.

John Royston
Love the green

Product works very well. Have used several braids and most fade quickly but this product so far has faded very little. Got excellent service from discount tackle.

J Braid Grand 20 and 30 lb. test.

J Braid Grand in my opinion is the best line on the market.. Casts long, has a coating that keeps it slick and is truly abrasion resistant. I have used Power pro since it came out .. and have realized after using it for several months that this is a superior line for casting strength and abrasion. I got no break offs like power pro that wears at the hook knot. Discount tackle has the best selection and price of anyone online. So I converted all my fresh and saltwater reels over. I have tried several other lines but kept going back to power pro until now.

Discount Tackle has the goods!

I love Daiwa J-Braid and J-Flouro and Discount Tackle Has It. I wanted to try, 20# J-Braid Grand and they were the Only tackle store that has it. PERIOD! The same is true with J-flouro leader line, wanted 10# to go with braid. Again Tackle Discount had it! Dick's, Tackle Warehouse, Bass Pro don't have any options on this. Hell, they won't even offer the J-flouro of the Grand.

J Braid Grand

The best price anywhere online and Daiwa JBraid Grand is the best braid on the market without a doubt.. I've tried regular jbraid along with several other newcomers to the market and have used powerpro since it came out.. This casts better and has more resistance to abrasion!
