New DIAMOND BRAID Fishing Line                   Website for Diamond Braid

Diamond Fishing Products is proud to announce the next advance in braided line technology, DIAMOND BRAID. Diamond Braid joins the best monofiliments in the world including, MOMOI HI-CATCH, DIAMOND, ILLUSION and XHARD. Our Braid incorporates the latest braiding techniques which improves strength at diameter, 3% stretch and bonded color-fastness that prevents flaking or fading.

 

This process products a round line that ensures greater reel capacity, decreased twist, distance casting and longer fishing life. Our perfect roundness allows tighter spool winding, prevents line from "knifing" through spools and significantly improves knotting performance. Also, this braid is a hollow core from 80lb. through 200lb - perfect for splicing.

DIAMOND BRAID is available in the largest braid spool manufactured, unique economical 5000 yards spools. Also 600 and 1200 yard spools. Available test include; 15lb., 20lb., 30lb., 50lb,. 65lb., 80lb., 100lb., 130lb. and 200lb. Color: DIAMOND Off-shore Blue.

Editors Note: Diamond now has a brown braid for freshwater in 300 yd spools and most sizes from 15-65 lb test. This is a brand new product and is just reaching the stores. This new braid in brown is the one that Roland Martin is using now and he loves it.

DIAMOND HOLLOW CORE BRAID SPLICING **

Make a sharp cut on the tag end of the Braid to be spliced.  Relax the Braid and tap the end lightly to flare the Braid and create a target for the monofilament/fluorocarbon.

Prepare your leader topshot by inserting your line into the cutting block.  Cut the leader cleanly along the edge of the cutting block.

Rotate the leader topshot line a quarter turn and cut cleanly again.  This tapered end will hold the leader in the splicing needle.

Select the proper needle for your splice.  Match the outside diameters of your needle and monofilament/leader.  Typically, there are two sizes, a smaller needle for 80# and a larger needle for 100# and above.

Heat the hollow end of the needle so the leader sticks to the inside walls of the needle.  Buff end of the leader with fine grit sandpaper.  Burrs and sharp edges on the leader will shred the Braid from the inside.  Wedge the leader material into the heated hole machined in the end of the needle.  Push it in as far as it will go.

Holding the hollow Braid vertically between thumb and index finger - insert the needle slowly into the relaxed Braid, sliding the Braid back every 4 inches.  The more the Braid bunches up - the more it frays and the tighter the weave becomes.

When splice is approximately one fathom in length - poke the needle out of the Braid and cut the leader.  Remove the needle and smooth the sharp edges of the leader with fine grit sandpaper.  If not rounded and smoothed, the sharp edges on the leader will cut their way out.

IMPORTANT*** - Lock the drag on the reel down and take a wrap around the spliced section and run out all the slack (***Repeat 3 times***).  This is a critical step!

To finish - whip approximately 4" top and bottom with dental floss or lighter Braid with wax.  Use a series of half hitches to secure splice.

Splicing instructions from Joe Curcuru, Fisherman's Outfitter - Gloucester, MA
