Best New Braided Line
Few categories at EFTTEX have a more international feel than Best New Braided Line. With entrants from Japan, Singapore, Germany, Poland, Taiwan and more, this year was no exception.
Major brands are always at the forefront of developments in this sector, so it was no surprise to see new launches from Berkley (with its FireLine), Climax (with its fast-sinking Touch Down line) and Sufix (with its new NanoBraid). But perhaps the most intriguing development came from Shimano, which claimed to have produced technology that helps a line realise 100% knot strength.

The winning entry came from Rapala VMC with its NanoBraid, while Shimano picked up the runner-up spot with the PowerPro Zero Impact.
