JK 35212 "stiffer" braid.

 

IMO, the soft JK braid fans out too easily.

Yes, we have heard good feedback on the JK stiffer braid from flat track guys also. If you are in doubt, get the Big Mama. The JK braid is low cost and a low risk test package is about 9 bucks for 10 pairs.

Prime braid works great for retro cars but right now is getting hard to find. The person who was making it recently passed away.

I like the JK braid as well. Use it for everything except Wing Cars. Prime is my choice for Wings but hard to find now. Was lucky to get a 100 pair before the untimely passing of the owner.. :(

I use JK for all racing including Grp 7 in spray glue. Not sure what I will use in glue.
