Hyperglide® 13x Braid

The ultimate casting braid

Constructed from 12 Japanese PE fibres woven around a strong central core, Hyperglide® is a very smooth, 13 carrier braid that retains its roundness.

This round structure delivers less friction and a better shaped line off the spool, which allows for more distance in each cast.

It also means less drag as it sinks down through the water column, giving improved lure presentation and a higher level of sensitivity.

With a range starts at ultra fine PE 0.4 (8lb) and topping out at a sturdy PE 8.0 (80lb), Hyperglide® 13x Braid is suitable for a range of fishing styles and target species.

Hyperglide® is ideal for a range of fishing styles in both salt and fresh water. The 8lb, 10lb and 12lb weights are ideal for targeting trout, salmon, squid and bream. The lighter weight braids deliver the casting distance needed to reach your target, and a high level of sensitivity to keep you connected to your tackle and fish. The ‘Tekapo Blue’ colour is ideal for these easily spooked species.

If you’re fishing with lures, softbaits or baits, or casting off the beach or bricks, targeting bigger species like snapper, Australian salmon and jewfish; then heavier 16lb, 20lb and 30lb weights are ideal. Hyperglide® offers a good level of abrasion resistance, and delivers long, accurate casts to your target.

When you’re topwater casting, chasing bigger species like kingfish, tuna and giant trevally, the 50lb and 80lb weights are ideal. The long, accurate casting ability of Hyperglide® will help your lure or bait stay in the hit zone for longer, giving you a better chance of enticing the bite.

Trout living in the beautiful Tekapo canal system are smart, and have seen every lure and bait under the sun, so it’s important to present your bait or lure as naturally as possible, to encourage a strike.

Hyperglide® 13x Braid’s fine diameter delivers a long, smooth cast allowing you to hit your target and deliver your bait or lure quickly to the bottom in a natural motion.

The canal floor is littered with rocks, trees and other structure, and Hyperglide®‘s round core wrapped in 12 fibres, gives you the strength and confidence to take on the big ones even in tricky terrain.

Distance, accuracy and sensitivity are important with fishing for trout and salmon in freshwater, and bream and similar species in estuaries.

Hyperglide® is designed to glide smoothly through the guides, delivering a long, smooth cast to where the fish are. The ultra fine diameter prevents unwanted drag in the water and delivers your lure/egg/fly to the bottom quickly, while delivering a high level of sensitivity so you can feel every little enquiry.

The colour of the braid, ‘Tekapo Blue’, reduces line visibility in the water, improving the presentation of your offering.

There are several reasons why Hyperglide® is ideal for chasing bream. Being super smooth and round helps with casting distance and accuracy, which is paramount when chasing bream given their easily spooked nature. Having the ability to cast beyond them and be stealth in doing so is the key. The thin line diameter allows for great knot strength which in turn makes it a great line to fish with as a braid and leader combo - Cara Cummings

Hyperglide's minimal stretch increases its sensitivity, making it ideal for straylining for snapper and jewfish.

It's round structure delivers long casts with unweighted or lightly weighted baits, and the thin diameter allows you to detect and feel every little touch of the bait.

If you're fishing with J style or suicide hooks, this helps you know when to strike to set the hook.

Casting distance is vital when fishing from a stationary position i.e. a wharf or anchored boat. Hyperglide® 13x Braid delivers a longer, smoother cast due to its round structure and fine diameter.

Longer casts allow you to hit targets that are further away and to simply cover more ground with each cast.

The ‘Tekapo Blue’ colour of the braid, combined with the fine diameter and round structure, offer a more natural lure presentation, and fall through the water column with less resistance than bulkier, flatter braids.

Lightly weighted jigheads are not the most aerodynamic thing to cast. With Hyperglide’s® round structure and fine diameter you get less friction meaning better shaped line off the spool and through the guides. This ensures a long, smooth cast with less air knots and more time in the zone to work your lures.

This, coupled with Hyperglide’s® increased level of sensitivity, means you will stay connected to your lure and feel even the smallest bites.

Live baiting is a great way to target a number of species. When your bait gets "excited" it can become frustrating as you're ability to feel a bite can be reduced.

Being in direct contact with your bait and feeling what it's doing can help you identify the moment the bait it attacked or swallowed.

The increased sensitivity of Hyperglide®, due to the thin diameter and minimal stretch, allows you to stay connected and in control, so you know when to set the hook.

The further you can cast, the longer your lure or bait will stay in the hit zone.

Hyperglide’s® smooth round structure is designed to deliver long, accurate casts, as well as less noise and air knots while gliding through the guides to your target. It also stops the line biting into the spool when the pressure is on.

The 12 Japanese PE fibres, woven around a strong central core, gives Hyperglide® a robustness that hold its own against tough fighting species like snapper, kingfish and tuna.

Brand Ambassador, Kate Rogers, regularly targets yellowfin tuna with 50lb and 80lb Hyperglide® - "Hyperglide® has superior knot strength due to its thin diameter and round structure. Knot strength is vital when targeting big fish that can produce blistering fast runs once hooked."
