Created in 1992 and fine tuned over the years Merlin remains one of the most popular traditional braids for today’s specialist.
It continues to deliver the goods on waters both at home and abroad accounting for National and World record fish. A firm favourite with tens of thousands due to its reliability and those seeking natural behaviour of bait for their presentation.
High strength Dyneema filaments have been interlaced with High Tenacity Polyester to produce a robust, yet extremely soft supple braid that is ideal for many angling situations and especially when fishing against heavy weed and snags.
Easy to tie and knot with grinners, palomars and ‘no knots’ this no-frills reliable product is suitable for a wide variety of modern day rigs. Use directly from hook to swivel, or connect it to stiffer material with a three-turn water knot to use as the final third soft section of a combi-rig. For those who have discovered the benefits of using an extra long soft ‘hair’ for their rigs its smooth supple behaviour in water allows plenty of separation between the hook and bait within the carps mouth and places no constraints on your presentation.
This weighted super braid is perfectly balanced to gently sink giving superb presentation with many modern rigs. Combine its low diameter, excellent knot strength and high abrasion resistance and you can see why it makes it an ideal choice for many on all still waters and rivers.
