Long-range capability, extremely high sensitivity, almost perfectly smooth surface, round profile, extra strong at small diameter and zero water absorb – you’d agree that’s how we characterize “ideal” braided lines.

Eighteria braided line is the most advanced in YGK-Pontoon21 program. And if you ask the question how many Features OF IDEAL BRAIDED LINE IT preserves, the answer will be simple enough. All of them! However Eighteria has one insignificant “drawback”: though it’s more resistant towards stones than standard 8-braided lines, it can’t cope with shells and with other sharp-edged underwater stuff.

How to overcome this is not a secret because YGK-Pontoon21 has another line for such conditions – Esentira

YGK WX braiding technology

Usually the threads which braided line is made from with the help of special equipment are placed at a shallow angle and they are not very tight. However, the latest braided lines, such as Eighteria, Esentira and Exteer Away Distance, have threads placed at a high angle, moreover they are braided under heavy load. Thus the line itself becomes very thick. Surely, this method needs more materials and time, as a result the line costs more than simple 4-braided ones, but its effectiveness is obvious.
