J braid versus others.

I’m looking to buy some reliable cheap braid for a reel I lend to friends and some good braid for bream for me. Salesperson pushed me to j braid which I’ve heard is crappy, but there was a new sort of j braid that the salesperson was spruiking which I think was called j braid grand. He said it was a higher end version and wasn’t replacing the original but the price was the same so not sure. Anyone tried it? What are people’s favorite braids now in cheap and cheerful, and no expense spared?

"It's a higher end J-braid that's not replacing the old J-braid but still costs the same" is Daiwanese for "We realise that J-Braid is complete horse sh!t but there's no way in hell we'll ever admit that so here's a new version that's less sh!t"

Daiwa have done this before, if you remember the original Tournament Hyper PE, it was utter garbage that on occasion literally fell apart in your hads. They then released Tournament Hyper Evo PE which is actually pretty decent.

Honestly, just get 6lb super PE.

I've got Duel Hardcore PE0.6 and 0.8 on all nearly all my reels. 8 Strand Japanese made and super smooth. You can pick it up for between $30 and $40 for a 150m spool. Thin and strong. 0.8 breaks at 16lbs and around .15mm dia. Its not cheap and cheerful or the most expensive but I like it.

+1 on the Duel Hardcore. I use the X8 (8 strand, you can also get 4 strand) and have it from PE 0.6 to PE 1.5 and can't fault the stuff.
