HI-SEAS says its new thermally bonded WildFire braid combines the most desirable properties of Spectra with the easy handling of monofilament. The braid's smooth surface and unique construction extends casting distance and accepts an angler's favorite mono knots, the company says. HI-SEAS makes the braid by weaving Spectra fiber around a proprietary core material, and then it thermally bonds the fibers from the inside out. The finished braid features a rounder, fuller shape that resists wind knots, possesses virtually no stretch and remains colorfast, HI-SEAS says. Available in fluorescent yellow and green and in 6- to 30-pound-test, WildFire costs $14.99 for a 125-yard spool; $29.99 for a 300-yard spool; and $226.99 for 2,500 yards.
