Quality braided fishing line is seen as a must have for modern lure and predator anglers. Offering incredible strength and casting capabilities in low diameters, along with incredible “feel” due to its lack of stretch, braided lines have revolutionised angling. Berkley produces several market leading products that are applicable for both salt- and freshwater fishing. Whether you’re finesse jigging, drop shotting, tackling pike or fishing for other large salt- or freshwater predators with lures or bait, Berkley’s braided fishing lines are the way to go. YOUR FISH. OUR SCIENCE.

Built for optimum performance, our X5 and X9 braided fishing lines offer superb feel and casting capabilities along with additional abrasion resistance. Made with 5 or 9 strands of PE fibres respectively, these braids add that extra level of roundness to regular 4 or 8 carrier braids, which makes the lines even more supple and silent. The X5 braided line is more abrasion resistant, while the X9 braided line is more limp and sensitive.
For the ultimate in lure fishing finesse, these braids start at 8lb strength, giving exceptional performance with the diameter of 2lb mono line!
