The original Fireline is a fused gel-spun line that lays flat on your spool, perfect for spinning reels. The Ultra 8, however, is a rounder, eight-fibre fused braid that stacks evenly on baitcasting reels. It’s also smoother, longer-casting and four times more abrasion-resistant than the original. No wonder it was named ICAST’s best new line. It’s available in smoke and crystal colours, from four- to 30-pound test.
