Fishing Gear: Strike King Contra Braid

Strike King Contra Braid

Description and Application: Contra Braid is the solution when you demand strength, durability, handling and value. What good is line if it won’t perform, or if it’s unaffordable? All of those are addressed with Contra Braid. The materials, compounds and processes used to make Contra Braid are trusted by anglers who stake their livelihood on it. Your wallet will thank you. The fish will not.

Staff Perspective:Fishing line is boring. There’s no flashy paint job, or cool historical research to discuss, but it’s the only thing separating you from the fish you’re battling—and the last thing you need is it to fail you. Contra is a fine braid that you can absolutely depend on when money is on the line—pun intended. Plus it’s super affordable. I like the 300-yard spools. It’s available in green or yellow and 8-, 10-, 15-, 20-, 30-, 40-, 50- and 65-pound break strengths.

Cost:$26.99-$29.99
