By using three colours along its length, ESP has created a camouflaged supple braid in green and brown that blends in with most lake beds.

Gone are the days of carrying various coloured hook links to suit various bottoms. With brown and green versions sporting three shades, all situations are covered.

Available in 15lb, 20lb and 25lb breaking strains and supplied on a 10m spool, it’s nice and supple and the tight weave prevents snagging individual strands of braid. I’ve been using it for solid-bag fishing and it’s performed faultlessly thus far, although I would place a few blobs of putty along a longer hook link to pin it down properly.
