Testing Berkley X5 Braid | MMB Ep. 18

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.

BASS IS BASS… and #TheHuntFor250 continues!
