New Smoother Braided Lines from Sunline

Location: Orlando, FL

Manufacturer: Sunline
Reviewer: Cal

Having nearly exhausted what can be done with fluorocarbon material in fishing lines - at least for now - Sunline turned their attention to some new braided lines this year leveraging a new IZANAS PE material to develop two new eight (8) strand braids.


Introducing Sunline's new finesse braid, TX1.


TX1 Braid: The new TX1 8-strand braided line from Sunline is put through a smoothing process that inserts silicon molecules on the surface of the PE. The theory is a smoother surface on our braided line will result in reduced friction through your guides for better casting performance and also less noise through your guides as you're working your bait and retrieving your line. The line is made in Japan and will be available in 7, 10, 12, 16 and 24lb test in spools of 125 and 600 yards and retail for $16.99 - $72.99 respectively.


TX1 will be available both Ultra Vis Yellow (shown here) and green.


BX2 is also new and designed for more heavy cover situations.

BX2 Braid: Sunline's new BX2 Braid is made with a similar process to the TX1 only it will be offered in higher ratings of 35, 50 and 65lb test. Where the TX1 will be available in both Ultra Vis Yellow and Green, BX2 will only be offered in Green. BX2 braid will also be sold in spools of 125 and 600 yards and retail for $16.99 - $72.99 respectively.

BX2 will only be available in green.

Thank you John Crews for showing us the two new lines from Sunline!

Conclusion: The only puzzling thing I found was whether or not TX1 and BX2 are really two different lines since neither is offered in the same pound test. Nevertheless, it seems as if Sunline is really expanding upon their braided lines offering a much quieter alternative to the SX1 and FX2. Thank you John Crews for showing us the two new lines from Sunline!
