Over 40 years ago Fuji introduced the first ceramic rod guides. Since then they have always been one step ahead of their competitors in both design and quality of rod components like guides and reel seats. To enhance rod performance with modern braided lines Fuji’s latest development in guides will prevent tangles as they form and offer less friction. The Fuji reel seats are a benchmark of the industry offering comfort, superior strength, corrosion resistance and great design. This is why Westin rods features Fuji components.
Predator fishing with Westin lures is the same as fishing with other lures. Except with more fish! When Ingvar Westin was a boy, his father taught him to make special lures by hand that swam with a seductive roll. When Ingvar grew up, he produced those same lures commercially, in more and more styles - and they’ve dominated the decades since then. The range has grown massively over the years, with a Westin tool for all kinds of predators in every fishing situation. Every single one of them goes back to the original concept in Ingvar Westin’s mind when he created the first lure all those years ago: they have the irresistible “Westin roll” that hooks big predators when everything else fails…

You might be wondering why Westin produce braids with several different specifications. Here you can read about the differences in the construction of our braided lines, and the pros and cons of each. Use this guide to help choose the right line for your style of fishing. All Westin braids are made from Ultra High Modulus Polyethylene (UHMPE) fibres, one of the strongest materials for its diameter available. The difference between how we use this material lies in the very specific selection of the number of carriers (strands) of fibres that make up the braid, and the pic count. The biggest difference in construction between the Westin lines is the number of carriers that make up the braid. The higher the number of carriers the rounder the profile of the braid and the finer the diameter, increasing its performance. A line with a large number of carriers is more complex to braid and must be manufactured much more slowly, hence the higher cost of these lines. If casting distance, feel, and low drag are essential characteristics in your fishing then a braid with a high number of carriers will bring performance benefits. Not quite as important as the number of carriers, but still influencing performance, is the pic count (per inch crosses) of the braid. This refers to the number of weaves per length of line. A high pic count gives a higher knot strength, greater abrasion resistance and a rounder profile. The trade-off is a slightly thicker line with less linear strength compared to a line with a lower pic count. Creating a high pic count line is more expensive because of the slower speed and greater complexity of the braiding process. The Westin W10 and W6 braids have the highest possible pic count for a 12+1-carrier and an 8-carrier line respectively. The W10 has a pic count of 56 and the W6 a pic count of 36.
