[Color] Pink, Xirius (Gray)
As its name suggests, Airbraid Silky was designed for silky smooth action inheriting all superb features of the patented Airbraid lines.
- 16 strands for 14 lb or above
- Far thinner diameter for the same strength and much less disturbed by wind and rapid water flow
- Minimized water absorption by reduced void fractions
- Excellent abrasion resistance by Airbraid technology
- 10+% higher break strength from the filament stage made from Polefin polymerization
- 20+% less elongation by Gel spinning for extreme sensitivity to detect bites
- Smooth surface reduces friction with guide rings
Hitena's main lines are every inch BREAK STRENGTH TESTED UNDER ISO STANDARD AND RATED AS IT IS since we don't want any anglers to oversize lines unnecessarily. If we have rated it 20 lb for example, it breaks just there. It's not like 20 lb rated actually breaking at 35 lb. If you are used to other brand's down-rating and want to have peace of mind, you might go for 1 (above 25 lb) or 2 (below 25 lb) strength step higher with ours but our lines are still much thinner than others. Since quality and consistency is controlled far tighter during production, Hitena's braided lines have less chance to break in actual fishing than others for the same strength.
Since Hitena's braided lines are self-recovery coated to protect from external damage, you may feel the line bleed dye in the first place but it's normal. Once this stage is over, they fast color much better than any other braided lines in the market.
