8 carrier braids are already popular because they’re thinner
than braids with only 4 carriers. Berkley has taken it to another level with a
9 carrier braid which has already won the AFTA 2018 award for best line.
The X9 enhances all the benefits of 8 carrier braids. The
twill construction makes it quieter and smoother through the rod guides. This
allows you to cast further than possible with 4 or 8 stranded braid lines. The
smooth, round surface of the braid not only improves the cast, but also
enhances sensitivity on the retrieve.
One of the strongest lines available, Berkley’s advertised
breaking strains go up to 65lb for the X9. For a diameter that only reaches up
to 0.35mm, that’s very impressive. Because the knot tends to be the weakest
part between the fish and the angler, the X9 was built to maximise the knot
This 9-carrier construction has a Polyethylene (PE) core.
The PE core keeps the strands of braid from cutting into each other, which is a
bigger concern for lines with a higher carrier count. Because the X9 has more
carriers but doesn’t cut into itself, it has a higher wear resistance for
fishing over rugged structure.
This dark, low visibility shade of green is less likely to
spook the fish. If you’re surface fishing, they won’t be able to distinguish
the colour of the line, so you might prefer for better bite detection.
Long, 300m Spool
This spool is 300 metres (328 yards) long and, best of all, you probably don’t need to let shelf life push you towards anything smaller. Most anglers find that braid easily lasts for over 8 years, especially if you store it away from heat and UV light. But if you change lines a lot, you might not need a 300m spool. That’s why we also offer .
