Used Fishing Line Casting Contest [J-Braid VS. PowerPro VS. Fins]
This video is all about a Used Fishing Line Casting Contest featuring THREE different types of braid.
All of the lines are 10lb test and those included are PowerPro, Daiwa J-Braid x8 Grand, and Fins.
We tested these lines a while back when they were brand new off of the spool.
But now we’re testing their castability after hours of on-the-water use.
Take a look!!

Some lines deteriorate quickly after use while others maintain their strength.
This test will expose the answers and show us which line is the better long-term option.
To start, we have equal amounts of line on all three spools.
All 10lb test and we’re using the same rod to cast switching out the reels as we go along.
I threw each line out 5 times.
The results were the closest we’ve ever had in a casting contest.
Right off the bat, the results were too close to call one of the lines a clear winner.
As far as what line is the best long-term option, you have to consider a few other factors.
Those being knot strength and on-the-water performance.
Additionally, I am pleased to report I experienced ZERO wind knots with any of these lines.
I over spooled the Daiwa J-Braid x8 Grand to begin with in the first test which hinders castability.
But after weeks of on-the-water use, I did not run into any wind knots.
In terms of on-the-water performance, there was not much difference between the lines.
I can say the J-Braid felt the smoothest whereas the other lines felt a bit rougher.
In my opinion, this all comes down to knot strength.
With that said, the Daiwa J-Braid x8 Grand is the conclusive winner.
It is the strongest 10lb braid I have tested after a few rounds of strength tests.
For these reasons, I’ll continue to use and rely on the Daiwa J-Braid x8 Grand.
Do you prefer a different braid or one of the others in this test?
