Have you ever reached into your tackle bag and had to pull out spool after spool of leader until you find the exact breaking strain you’re after? Or worse still found you don’t have the breaking strain you wanted because it didn’t fit in the tacklebag with all the other large spools?
Unitika know that feeling too. As a world leader in textiles and polymers, Unitika have decades of experience producing class leading lines in convenient sizes covering leader and mainline in multiple materials.
They have recently turned their focus to leaders, producing handy sized spools of 30 metres in the lighter line classes and 25 metres in the heavier. The leaders are available in both nylon and fluorocarbon material and both are Shock Leaders. The spool is unique in that the top flips back to give access to the line to re-wrap or peal off, or for storage, no line will come free, no more line everywhere!
Shock Leader is designed to provide the angler with a better hookup rate for hard hitting fish, the leader have a initial givebut stops after this, meaning that if a fish hits hard instead of pulling hooks you have that forgiveness to hold the fish without pulling hooks.
Fluorocarbon Shock Leader is a dense sinking line with low visibilitymaking it perfect for sub surface lure fishing.The nylon or monofilament Shock Leader is less dense, meaning floating,and is perfect for surface lures and bait fishing where you need the lure or bait to suspend in the water.
Both are available in common breaking strains of 12, 16, 20, 25 and 30lb spools.
