J-Braid 8 Grand vs. PowerPro Braid (Knot Strength & Casting Distance)
PowerPro has been consistently winning our braided line contests…
But we have a new winner with record-breaking numbers!
Although the testing is not over, there have been some serious surprises so far.
Check out the knot strength test and casting contest below for PowerPro Original and Daiwa J-Braid 8 Grand!

PowerPro vs J-Braid 8 Grand Casting Contest [VIDEO]
For the casting contest, I did two rounds of 6 casts for each line.
Overall it appeared to be a draw and both lines cast at relatively the same distances.
The one thing to be aware of is that PowerPro Original is a 4 strand braid and J-Braid 8 Grand is an 8 strand braided line.
8 strand braid has a tendency to decrease in casting performance over time.
As I perform more tests and casting contests, we’ll see if the J-Braid holds up!
Before we say that J-Braid is the best line ever, we still have more testing to do…
But for now, my favorite PowerPro may take a backseat to J-Braid 8 Grand.
