Strength Test & Review – KastKing KastPro braided Fishing Line

Aloha hui!
Today we do our first strength test and review of a fishing line. We test out the KastKing KastPro Braided Fishing Line with the new Dangalang Testing Protocol. The test was mainly for fun but ended up providing me some valuable information. Let me know your favorite knots to use for braided fishing line!
A hui hou!

Try j braid

Ace Rms says:

You could have used the little device to weight luggages. You would directly mesure the pressure applied on the knot.
From the videos i’ve watched about knots and the pressure they can handle, palomar knot is quite strong for an easy knot to tie.
A chain knot is quite good too but i guess not suitable for braid.

Make Nitro Great Again says:

Now do an abrasion test on any braid. Ur mind will b blown. It’s y I’ll never use it from shore. Would love to, to b able to cast farther and hold more line on my spool. But to me it’s not really worth the trade off. Old school mono Andy for everything. Lol

Uni or palomar.

Iolana N says:

Cheee hoo I like power pro

MMZ Grow says:

Great channel so far bro I am definitely going to sub up

Bent Frame says:

Kapono see if you can do the heavier braid, I tested 120# kastking superpower braid using a digital scale with slowly increasing weight and I consistently broke at 37#’s. When I contacted KastKing they told me I had a bad batch and only refunded me after I sent the line back. No other contact. I asked a follow up question and got no reply. I’d like to see another test on the bigger braid but at $46.00 a spool I didn’t expect a whole lot but I expected the breaking strength to be higher, closer to half. Do you think you could test a spool?

Bryan Kuriki says:

Palomar knot. It never fails on me

Pole Bendahs Union says:

hooo that circle hook is huuuuge

MrLAWAIA says:

My trusted go to line is either power pro or sufix advance braid. How’s the memory in the kastking braid ?

ernesto bruno says:

Use uni knot or Palomar

Sheepeh says:

Braddahs on Da Lawn

Bait N' Boujee says:

Great video brotha. For straight braid an Impoved Clinch knot is a no go though. Try the Palomar Knot of the San Diego Double Jam Knot. Great Job and KastPro is my favorite line!


Great video … try a san Diego jam knot .. they hold up pretty good …

micah tsue says:

Palomar knot is easy to tie. I like powerpro (super slick8 and maxcuatro) and sufix.

brianj123458 says:

I think you should try it side my side with ANTHER 15lb braid line and see if there is a difference


Im going ulua fishing from the north shore on oahu got any tips for hooks weights swivles etc i have only gone once and it was a blast


I prefer the Uni-Knot for my braid.

Iolana N says:

I like suffix line because cheap

Ulua Huntah34 says:

Kastking Just doesn’t make good products lol, Except for the kodiak.
