Daiwa says its new Samurai Braid features a unique eight-strand weave that helps anglers cast farther, better sense strikes and set hooks, experience less line noise on the retrieve and achieve a faster sink rate. The dark-green Samurai Braid comes in 15- to 150-pound-test in 150-, 300- and 1,500-yard spools. The diameter of the 20-pound-test braid is the equivalent of 4-pound mono. Prices for 150-yard spools range from $24.95 to $39.95; 300-yard spools cost $45.95 to $72.95; and 1,500-yard bulk spools cost $204.95 to $359.95. Call 562-802-9589 or visit www.daiwa.com.
