Never out of your depth with braid

NT News - Motoring - - MARINE GUIDE -

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.
