AFTA 2022 – Best Line Winner’s

YGK X-Braid Upgrade X8 Pentagram

TYING for the win at the recent AFTA Awards, Upgrade Pentagram introduces its five-colour concept.

Upgrade X8 consists of advanced fibres braided with Japan’s latest technology to offer a premium braid.

YGK WX braiding technology is woven to offer the least stretch and tightest line body.

Employing the most advanced filament, Ultra 2 PE, to achieve approximately 40 percent more maximum strength compared to standard spectra braided lines.

Upgrade X8’s eight-strand body offers the smoothest line surface, its hard coating prevents tangle, abrasion and water absorption.

Pentagram five colours come with a 20cm mark every 2m.



Venom V-Line X8

TYING for the best line win at the recent AFTA Awards, Wilson Fishing’s Venom V-Line X8 braid will be a winner for you too.

Venom V-Line is a high-end sportfishing braid that is designed specifically for sportfishers who need a line that suits their needs.

V-Line is built from Honeywell Spectra fibre and is a pre-stretched heat treated 8-strand braid that comfortably sits at the top end of braided line manufacturing processes.

Improvements in manufacture have allowed us to include a mild coating and a better weaving process to help the line resist staining from dirty water use often seen while barra and cod fishing. The new manufacturing process also allows this line to be used equally effectively on spin, baitcast and offshore overhead tackle, making V-Line an incredibly diverse braided line that is an elite level braid that can handle all fishing situations.

The mild coating also means this braid will resist fluffing and therefore be a more consistent braid for the life of the line. Fluffing of braid creates weak spots that reduce the consistency of the braid, something all dedicated braid uses insist on.
