During my upcoming trip to Argentina, I will be testing out Daiwa's Samurai braid spooled on the Lexa 400 baitcaster. The Samurai braid is said to be softer, smoother, and more flexible than other brands of braided fishing line, so this produces less friction thus longer casts. The Samurai braid is also known to be knot friendly whereas some of the other braids do not hold knots well. The golden dorado of La Zona will definately put this braid and the Lexa 400 to its ultimate test. If they had handle these monsters, in my opinion they can handle any freshwater fish on earth!! Watch for an update after my trip on how these items preformed.
