After receiving the new Daiwa Samurai braid from Bassin' USA for review, I decided to really put this super line to the test, so I spooled my twelve year old Grandson, Trayven Howard’s rod with the Samurai Braid. Trayven loves to fish Chatter-baits and often lets them sink into heavy cover. The end result is often a broken off lure. Not any more!
Daiwa Samurai Braid - 55 lb Test/10 lb Diameter
The Samurai Braid can take a beating and if you're strong enough, you can not only catch some nice fish, but also bring in a heavy piece of bottom cover and salvage your lure.
I especially like the limpness of the line and I am looking forward to using it when fishing top-water lures this summer.
The bluish/gray coloring is ideal for the slightly murky waters we fish in Iowa. Of all the Braids I have field tested, Samurai Braid is the only one I can tie a straight clinch knot and not have it slip!
This wonderful line will pay big dividends for us this summer, as we can cast right into the thickest cover where bass love to congregate in the heat of the day.
