What are you using now

Recommended Posts

Really depends. Nylon in the smaller stuff, but I have question marks over its' abrasion resistance, flouro in 15lb (just a happy medium, happy with abrasion resistance but still subtle) and in 30+lb stuff I just use whatever leader material (Black Magic, Jinkai etc)


Might go back to maxima ultragreen if I don't like the Nylon.

My understanding in regards to the merits of fluorocarbon leader is that it is as close as any form of line or leader can get to the refractive index of water, thus making it virtually invisible, but not completely.

Maybe the budding physicists among us can substantiate or debunk this claim.

I imagine the only thing completely invisible in water is,...well...um water.;)
