STROFT GTM Tippet $8.45
Great value 50 meter Spools. STROFT GTM tippet material is the strongest in the world, it is absolutely unrivalled for strength vs diameter, the best, number 1, none better. More competition anglers and top pro guides use STROFT than any other brand. STROFT® is a monofilament nylon that has been formulated and treated during production to produce a high-strength, controlled-stretch, material. A typical example is the 0.20 mm (.008inch, 3X) STROFT® with a strength of 4.20 kg (9.2 lbs). This is 30% stronger than some other popular high-strength nylons. STROFT® also provides superior knot strength. STROFT® GTM is produced using a multi-level tempering (heat-treatment) process to remove material stresses formed during extrusion, cooling, and drawing.

STROFT FC1 TIPPET 25M STROFT FC1 TIPPET
STROFT FC1 Flurocarbon Tippet $16.45
Stroft FC1 100% Fluorocarbon Tippet Material Waku's new fluorocarbon material is the best in test according to the EFFTA. Stroft FC1 has an exceptionally high knot strength and the highest breaking strains that the EFTTA have as yet been able to confirm for lines made from 100% fluorocarbon. Stroft have paid particular attention to the sensitivity and feed-back as well as the resistance to abrasion. Peak performance can be expected in both these properties, even though the line can not be classed as particularly hard, they have low elasticity and are best described as being supple and tough. FC1 Fluorocarbons have the highest breaking strains that the EFTTA have as yet been able to confirm for fluorocarbon lines. Compare FC1 againts other Fluorocarbon material. Has it been independantly audited? - we doubt it. As with most mono's, the majority of Fluorocarbon on the market carry ratings that are overstated. Colour: crystal clear Spool Size: 25m & 100 meter spools Available in the following specifications: 0.14mm - Test: 1.9 kg (4.1 lbs) X Equivilent: 6X 0.16mm - Test: 2.5 kg (5.1 lbs) X Equivilent: 5X 0.18mm - Test: 2.9 kg (6.39 lbs) X Equivilent: 4.5X 0.20mm - Test: 3.6 kg (7.9 lbs) X Equivilent: 4X You will not find a better tippet material than those made by STROFT Got questions? - Drop us a line, we'd love to hear from you.

Low resin materials help increase bending limits & overall response. Multi Carbon Construction (Multi modulus).Using only the highest quality fabrics from the USA, Japan and Korea, up to five different types of carbon are used in each blank. Each type is placed at various parts of the blank to optimize strength and weight. Ultra-high modulus fibre boasts the highest tensile and compressive strength of any fibre in its class. Internal High Strength Ferrule.A high strength internal ferrule is placed at each join to provide superior crush and split resistance.  Target Zero Fibre Alignment.Fibre alignment along the length of any blank is critical. Even the smallest deviation in fibre alignment from the axis of load will greatly reduce the strength of the blank.  Got questions? - Drop us a line, we'd love to hear from you.

Since it can load itself during casts with light lines, a 6wt line put over it seems to feel somewhat like casting a (heavy) 6wt CF rod. At the other end of the spectrum, the 12wt did bog it down somewhat, but the reserve of power in the big butt section will pull it through without complaint. I liken it to a big V8 diesel engine with low-end torque that’s a pleasure to draw into." Read the complete review here Got questions? - Drop us a line, we'd love to hear from you.
