Shimano Kairiki 8 Braided Line - 150m. The new Shimano Kairiki 8 is a renewed 8 carrier braid which is produced in Japan and now features a “VT construction Method” braiding technology. It is a very strong and smooth PE line which is perfect for casting great distances. It has the perfect properties for spinning in both fresh and saltwater since it is highly sensitive and very smooth, which also results in noise reduction. Due to the smoothness and low diameter, Kairiki 8 is a great line for jigging since it has low water resistance and due to the maximum stretch of < 3.0 %, it is very sensitive as well.

New braid for me so ways weary,but fantastic braid, brilliant knot strength and doesnt cut in to fluro. Snap.strenghth good to, didn't snap when bail arm flipped over mid cast so good there. Durability seems fine, nice finish not to much of a waxy feel. Abbrassion wear unknown. But it's a big yes from me.
