Features:

  • The Daiwa J-Braid Grand x8 Island Blue 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.
  • Bright blue color that offers high visibility while also incorporating sky and water contrast.
  • 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.

Island Blue J-Braid Grand x8 is a bright blue color that offers high visibility while also incorporating sky and water contrast. 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.

Best Braid I've Ever Used

This is hands down my favorite braid. This stuff is super smooth, strong, and the color lasts longer than others I have tried.

Strong and smooth!

I love the Daiwa J-Brand Grand x8 Braid! It is smooth of the reel and guides, when you cast and when you reel it in. I still get some wind knots off my spinning reel, when I am surf casting, but not as many as the other brands give me. I would definitely buy this brand again :-)

Best Braid I Have Used

This is by far my favorite braid that I have used. I still love original power pro but this stuff is just as strong and super smooth so it goes through the guides without any noise. Great stuff!
