SpiderWire introduced a new braid this year called the Zilla Braid and it's said to be made for those "Godzilla-like" beast fish that guys catch where standard braid just won't cut it because of the lack of stretch and shock strength when a large fish makes a powerful surge. Standard braid only has a 2 to 3 percent stretch where a monofilament might have a 20 percent stretch. The Zilla braid was made in that 6 to 7 percent stretch range.
They blend their Dyneema with Cordura materials to give them strength and durability while maintaining a shock strength for the life of the line. Cordura as some may know is the same material they use in clothing like Carhart.
We tested it in their booth and on their display you could easily feel that no stretch with standard braid, a little stretch or sudden surge and shock strength with Zilla braid and extreme stretch on standard monofilament. Pretty neat stuff for those guys that like to chase hard charging big aggressive fish like muskies, big catfish, stripers and more.
