Maxima’s new Braid 8 super line is made with eight-yarn round construction, which tightly interweaves the microfibers, producing a more rounded result than many comparable braids, the company says. Maxima prestretches and heat-fixes the line, and triple-coats the surface. Braid 8 comes in 150- or 300-yard spools of 10- to 80-pound‑test in high-viz yellow or ultragreen. Smaller spools cost $32; larger spools cost $63. Call 503‑547‑8555 or visit maximafishingline.com.
