Best New Braided Line
World fishing powerhouse, Pure Fishing, had high hopes for its Berkley Black Velvet and it was not disappointed, winning the Braided Line category.
The company, which won the Innovation of the Year in 2011 for its highly-acclaimed Berkley Nanofil, says that the Black Velvet is the first ever ‘permanent colour super braid’ which will never lose its colour.
Japanese manufacturer, Momoi Fishing, was Commended for its Oshikage ultra-fine PE braid, while last year’s winner, Rapala VMC, was also recognised for its Sufix Performance Pro. In 2013 it took the honours for its NanoBraid.
