EFTTEX Awards 2012 - Best New Braided Line

Alutecnos X8

8X braid is the new product from our ‘brilliant’ team of engineers, says Italian-based Alutecnos.

The manufacturer adds that it believes the product is so good it provides anglers with ‘a new way to fish’.

Based around 100% Spectra Honeywell fibre from the USA, the braid is extremely soft and silky to the touch, making casting and retrieving an effortless experience.

“What makes this product stand out from others in the market is the fact the braid has undergone a special DOC-Treatment (Dynamic Oil Coat Treatment),” says Alutecnos. “This is both a lubricant and protective coating that penetrates the line and creates a natural barrier against corrosive marine agents.”
