YGK X-Braid Upgrade X8 Pentagram 5 color 150m, 200m, 300m YGK Upgrade in multi-color!

Availability: In stock

YGK X-Braid Upgrade X8 Pentagram has the most advanced material braided by the most advanced technology to offer great lines. And, YGK explains it has the most tightly braided line among its braided lines. By the braid process, lines will have more abrasion resistance, but will lose some tensile strength. Upgrade has the improved abrasion resistance which gives super advantage on the line. And this Pentagram 5 color version has marking at every 2m, instead of at every 1m of Omnium.

It has smooth surface and the smallest line diameter. It employs the most advanced filament, Ultra 2 PE, to achieve about 40% more maximum strength compared to standard spectra braided lines. On its surface, it has relatively thick coatings to prevent tangle and to protect line from abrasion. YGK WX braiding technology makes the line with the least stretch and tightest line body. The 8-strand body offers the smoothest line surface. Quality is proven. 5 colors by every 10m and marking at every 2m. This line is more suitable for light game fishing with casting rigs where line depth counting is less important. Made in Japan.

Jun's comment: I have been asking YGK reps to release the multi-color version of Upgrade for many years, and this is it! The great about original, YGK Upgrade X8, is its durability from soft thick surface coatings. It was the only #1(around 20lb) lines to stand for guide wrapping problems in casting 10g spoons in Shiretoko, Hokkaido as of 2018. Other thin coated braids easily broke from abrasion caused by guide wrapping. I shall start testing Omnium #1-22lb line, which is the different color version of this Pentagram, in a long-term for light jigging in saltwater on my Shimano 20Metanium. November 10, 2020. I am qiute satisfied with the performance of the line after quite a few times of light jigging fishing from boat in the Tokyo bay. I have successfully landed a few red snappers and other games from 75m deep bottom. August 1, 2021.
