Ande says its new Braid is a unique formulation that's neither Spectra nor Dyneema. It's an eight-strand, graphite-colored line that comes in pound-tests from 20 to 150. The 20-pound-test braid diameter equals that of 4-pound-test mono. Ande says Braid creates very little guide noise and is colorfast. Available in 300-, 600- and 3,000-meter spools, the line costs $39.99 to $300.
