PROS AND CONS
1. Stiffer than mono 2. Minimal stretch 3. High abrasion resistance 4. Smaller diameter than nylon monofilament of same breaking strength 5. Sinks faster than
1. More expensive than
nylon mono 2. Strong memory 3. Too stiff to make a good
main fishing line 4. Needs to be replaced after a quality fish catch because its original properties may have been compromised. After being stressed, it could prove no less visible than a nylon mono leader, and it could be weakened.
Before deploying, stretch the leader to remove spool memory so it lies straight. Before a bait is redeployed, clean the leader of any film with an alcohol wipe, especially in clear water, when chunking or live-baiting. Try dropping down in breaking strength to increase the bites.
