Scientific Anglers Leaders And Tippet

Researched and developed over the course of the last two years, SA’s new nylon and fluorocarbon leader and tippet materials are up to 35% stronger than their predecessors, built to traditional X size specifications, and come in a wide selection of lengths and sizes, up to 65 lb in nylon and 80 lb in fluorocarbon.

“We fully believe that we’ve developed the best materials in the industry,” said research and development manager Andrew Bosway. “We started from scratch with the sole purpose of creating leaders and tippets with the strongest straight tensile and wet knot strength on the market. Based on months of data collection, testing, and on-the-water field work, we’re confident we’ve done just that.”

Manufactured using a proprietary process that removes stress during extrusion and reduces water absorption when used, the nylon leaders and tippets are thus able to maintain their structural integrity for longer, which produces stronger tensile and wet knot breaking strengths.
