Description

I had an interesting conversation about jigging braids with one of the Japanese line gurus at EFFTEX a few weeks ago. I'd always assumed they were pretty much the same as standard braids, just with pretty colours along their length. Not quite correct though it would seem... While we may not fully notice the benefits in our shallower water fishing, specialist jigging braids are designed to have even less stretch than the already assumed "zero stretch" standard braids we use. For the guys in the know however, especially when fishing deeper water, standard braids still maintain a small percentage of stretch to provide a little extra strength and durability within their construction. In deep water this small amount of stretch can become evident - hence the use and production of dedicated jigging braids. As you'd imagine, jigging braids are designed to have much closer to zero stretch for more direct contact and lure control in deep water. There is one small sacrifice however, as the result of less stretch is also less abrasion resistance. For vertical jigging, abrasion resistance isn't ultimately that important (assuming you are using a sensible length leader anyway) so it's a sacrifice wirth making. The Super Jigman X8 is a sensibly priced high quality braid from YGK. On 200m spools you have enough for deep water marks and no chance of backing knots poking through. 1.2PE and 1.5PE versions cover most of our fishing in UK waters with light jigging rods.
