Smooth, supple and sensitive — these words sum up Shimano's new Kairiki 8 braid!

Its smooth finish means it creates less friction over rod guides when cast, Kairiki SX8 slips through the water with reduced resistance and thrumming on the retrieve or when trolled. Kairiki braid is well behaved on the reel spool, with even lay and less propensity to throw off annoying wind knots. This makes it a tough line for use in difficult terrain.
Available in 11 breaking strains from 8 to 80lb on 150 metre spools at the lighter end and 300 metres from 20lb up, its variety of colours means it can be at home in a western impoundment, trout stream, or down in the estuaries and offshore.



  • material: PE Dyneema.
  • 8-Carrier (8 strand braid, making it super smooth)
  • rounder profile – better for casting.
  • Colors: Mantis Green
  • superb line for difficult terrain.
  • quiet.
  • minimum propensity for throwing wind knots.
  • Made In Japan
  • Available in 150 & 300 metre spools
