Testing Berkley X5 Braid | MMB Ep. 18

Testing some Berkley® x5™ Braid Fishing Line in a few beautiful new locations to see if it holds up better against bass than the Spiderwire EZ Braid that broke on me 3 times a few weeks back…

Made in the USA – Berkley® x5™ Braid Fishing Line is made of 100% polyethylene fibers, x5 Braid weaves 5 strands of material into a single line, rather than the standard 4 strands used in most PE lines. As a result, x5 Braid is significantly stronger and more abrasion-resistant – so you can rip right through heavy vegetation and fish deep inside woody cover as needed, with no worries. Virtually no stretch, for amazing sensitivity. Let’s test it.
