Braid revolutionized the fishing market delivering more sensitivity and improved casting distance for multiple fishing styles.
It is generally available in both 4 and 8 strand braided lines and Majorcraft has both. As the name implies, 4 and 8 refer to the number of microfilaments weaved together. The difference is in the end product with 8 strand being smoother and rounder. This is because the fibres are woven differently to 4 strand and the bundles are smaller with more of an even circumference along the length of the line or weave. It produces a supple, smooth line that is less likely to sing through the guides. 8 strand is generally more expensive to produce. 4 strand is regarded as robust and less supple but better able to deal with the demands of offshore bait fishing for instance. It is also cost effective for a wide range of activities.
The new series covers general angling and squid fishing with line available in both 4 and 8 strand offering a top quality line in two options. The Dangan Braid’s original yarn is a super strong, polyethylene fibre made by Tobyo which is custom twisted in a Japanese factory to develop a braid with a lower stretch, higher sensitivity.
The Dangan comes in a range of strengths and is user friendly for beginners as well as having the performance needed for lure casting anglers.
Both variants have a super smooth, slippery surface coating that reduces friction on guides and the reel, which increases casting distance and enables better line lay.
MC Dangan offshore and inshore line is multi-coloured in ten meter increments making it suitable as not only a casting line but a jigging option too. It is available in 150m and 300m spools from 12 to 50lb.
MC Dangan Egi is pink and available in 8, 10, 12 and 14 pound line classes. The spools come 150 meter lengths and it can be used for estuary fishing like Bream too.
