If you listen to any braid buffs out there, they all say eight-strand braids are superior to their four-strand counter parts.
This is down to the fact that with more strands comes better strength, a smoother finish and thinner diameter. All this adds up to a line which adds extra yards to your cast from the off, and so the 8-strand Sufix Pro-8 braid is certainly going to be on many anglers radar. Spodding and marker float work will benefit thanks to better transmission through the line and zero stretch. Pro 8 braid is available on 135m spools in both pink and dark green, with strains ranging from 11lb to 37lb being most suited to carp anglers. £24.99
