Plaited Braid Line

Postby Chiseler » Sun Apr 21, 2013 4:53 pm

Spent a bit of time and made a plaited braid line on the weekend 10 foot and also a 13 foot took a bit of time but came out well I think.
Thickness around 1/16"

That looks impressive. But the important thing is how do they cast and fish?

Thanks for your posotive comment
No idea yet I will find out this afternoon and give you an update

Went for a cast this afternoon and I am suitably impressed casted well into the wind and cast low retains its shape and height next I will try the 14 footer.

Must say they do look good. What material did you plait?

I used Diawa 8 braid sw 6-60 lb evo silicon braid multi colour line.

Takes a fair bit of time to do plait,took me about 5 hours,hard on the hands but being a soft line it doesn't cut into your skin and you can keep your plait tight.


Seems to work for tenkara style of casting.

Update 07 May
This Line is bit heavy if I hold the rod horizontal there is already a pre bend
TUSA furled line looks to be lighter less pre bend on the Amago
