Extra thin and round, P8 is the premium quality braid.  Utilising 8 strand construction ensures P8 is one of the thinnest braids on the market.  Round, smooth and supple, P8 will pack more evenly onto your reel for longer accurate casts time after time.

Platypus P8 Braid™ is stronger than steel. Computer monitored braiding achieves an ultra tight weave of 100% Ultra High Molecular Weight PE gelspun fibres in a eight carrier configuration. Eight carrier braids are the premium end of the braid spectrum, most Japanese braids are eight carrier.

8 Carrier construction is the best braid structure for any fishing situation or species using either overhead or spin gear.  8 carrier braids are rounder and thinner than regular 3 or 4 carrier braids and do not flatten and take on water as 12 or 16 carriers do.  With the actual unknotted breaking strain on the label anglers are able to make a more informed choice about, arguably the most important component of their setup. Using three or four carriers produce a cheaper, but technologically inferior braid.

Ideal for all lure casting applications – from light tackle soft plastics through to rock fishing and deep sea jigging.

Platypus P8 Braid™ uses 100% Ultra High Molecular Weight PE fibres with engineered near zero stretch… and unlike fused gelspun lines, it has zero memory for better control.
