The new WFT 12+1 KG is our premium braided line for maximun requirements. We use the thinnest UHMPE filaments currently available in Japan to create this revolutionary new product.
WFT 12+1 KG consists of 13 Japanese ULTRA High MODULUS PE fibres. 12 PE filaments woven around a unidirectional core, also of 100% UHMPE.
Braids already exist with eight woven fibres, however they will form a hollow space in the middle of the braid. This hollow maybe very small and in the example of WFT FIRST 8 KG nearly completely filled with coating. However, with a 12 thread construction the hollow is much wider and water may come between the threads and impair the mechanical properties of the line particularly during casting. The 13th fibre (+1) of WFT 12+1 KG removes this hollow and any negative impact it may cause. In addition the 13th thread reduces line compression and allows the line to remain perfectly round.
WFT 12+1 KG pushes the technical boundaries further, delivering higher abrasion resistance, superior knot strength and tensile strength approximately 50% higher than quality 8 strand braided lines. That all with a never before seen pliancy.
WFT 12+1 KG : - Maximum smoothness - Absolutely soundless in the guides ! - Not to soft - Perfectly round due to the "+1"-core - Abrasion resistant
Green: for natural colour, perfect for shy fish and clear waters
