Never out of your depth with braid
SHIMANO’S new Power Pro Depth-hunter braid is aimed at anglers who need to fish their baits or lures at a specific depth or distance from their boat.
The spectra fibre line is colourcoded every 10 metres in either blue, yellow, green or orange — allowing the angler to tell just how much line is in the water.
To make this even more precise there is also a black marker on the line at 1.5m intervals.
Anglers who target kingfish and samsons on deep-water reef systems will make the most of the ability to drop a jig to the precise depth for the fish.
Likewise, those who troll for bluefin tuna during their autumn run will find the Power Pro useful for placing lures at the correct distance from the boat.
The new braid is available in 5kg, 7.5kg, 10kg, 15kg, 24kg and 32kg breaking strains in 152m spools, 36kg in 300m spools, 20kg, 24kg, 36kg and 50kg in 450m spools and 20kg, 24kg, 36kg, 50kg and 75kg in giant 1370m bulk spools.
