  • The Daiwa J-Braid Grand x8 Gray Light is Daiwa's new, 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.
  • Light gray color that's visible in low light, but easily blends into the water color spectrum once submerged.
  • Available in 150 and 300 yard spools in test strengths ranging from 6 pound to 80 pound.

The ultimate new 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 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 high 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.

Gray Light J-Braid Grand x8 is a light gray color that's visible in low light, but easily blends into the water color spectrum once submerged. 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.

    Fantastic braid better than power pros equivalent

    I chose the 10 pound gray color for bass fishing Super thin line yet Super strong easily saved me landing a bass weighing 4.6 pounds wrapped around dock chains , and didn’t fray or fail me I’ve had it on my reel atleast a month or so and there plenty of line on the spool for multiple reels
    Silky smooth love this braid!

    High Quality Braid!

    I picked up the 50# braid to toss big topwaters and frogs on. Huge fan of the feel of this! Some braids (in my experience) have a tendency to tighten up around the spool too much and cause casting issues. This J Braid has been super easy to work with so I have no headaches all day while fishing. Definitely will be buying more.


    Great line, very smooth and sensitive

    Super Casting Distance and Strong

    This braided line is economic and super reliable. You can cast a mile without loosing any quality with this. I recomend this product very strongly. I fish al least 4 times a week and has been a terrific desicion to change from poer pro to Daiwa.
