Sunline’s newest braided line comes in two different options, 4 strand (PEx4) and 8 strand (PEx8), both made from their latest EX-PE fibres. Japanese made, affordable and great performance make these two lines a great option. With a large range of colour options and lengths, there is sure to a suitable Siglon PE braid for your fishing needs.
PE x4: Siglon PE x4 braid is suitable for baitcast, spinning and overhead reels for both lure fishing and bait fishing. Being the more basic of the two braids and therefore cheaper, doesn’t make it the lesser option but sometimes the better one. The characteristics of this braid makes it a great option for use where shock and abrasion resistance are required. Being made up of only 4 PE fibres, this braid will have greater strength per fibre making it a great option around structure and handle shock from things like backlashes on a baitcast reel. Coming in at a super low retail price, Siglon PE x4 braid is excellent value for money.
PE x8: Siglon PE x8 is composed of 8 EX fibres which gives it advantages over 4 strand braid in a number of ways. The larger number of smaller PE fibres gives it a rounder, softer and smoother profile that will aid in reducing friction. This friction occurs on the spool of a reel, the guides on a rod and even through the water. This equates to further casts, quicker sink rates and increased bite detection. These are very important advantages that most anglers desire, especially in open water fishing scenarios. Siglon PE is super fine for its breaking strain, which increases these advantages even further. Most high-performance braids would normally come with a hefty price tag, yet Sunline’s Siglon PEx8 remains very affordable.
As of August 2020, to help anglers select their preferred breaking strain, the labelling now prominently identifies the "average" breaking strain which is more commonly known than the maximum breaking strain, and takes into consideration knots and/or shock.
