Tuf Leader is a line made with a fiber core and a braided stainless steel cladding. It has a smaller diameter than the steel wire and is easily tied, it allows to make the common knots to the hook. Ideal for Dorados, Tarariras, sea fishing and other sharp-toothed fish.
Engineered and designed specifically for “toothy fish”, TUF-Leader eliminates common issues associated with steel leader materials. TUF-Leader’s unique construction allows the leader to be knotted with standard knots rather than using traditional crimping techniques associated with stranded wire. Whether tying an Albright or Palomar knot, the knots cinch down cleanly and with little effort. TUF-Leader is the first braided tie-able stainless leader on the market. Manufactured with a unique tri-component process, TUF-Leader incorporates T-304 extruded stainless steel around a Spectra® fiber core to ensure the highest possible knot strength and durability. The 16-carrier braid construction ensures the smallest possible diameter coupled with a super smooth exterior feel and helps the leader tie similarly to monofilament lines!
