MONO AND FLUOROCARBON LEADERS

select line type

I’ve used Black Magic Tough Trace in 80 pound for years. Quite happy with the product, although $21.25 per spool from my local tackle shop is a bit steep, considering how the amount we go through when jigging and cubing. Eventually I contacted our jigs and braid supplier to see what he had to offer, and got a good deal on two types of trace material.

 

The first is fluorocarbon coated mono. 80-pound breaking strain, as mentioned, and in the better kind of dispenser which makes it easy to manage.

Price: $12 per 80m spool, plus postage.

Our ten knife jig special is shipped in a 3 kilo Australia Post bag, but only takes up 2.5 kilos. So if you would would like to try a spool with their jig or braid order we can add it to the mail bag, no charge for delivery.

 

 

The other is 100% fluorocarbon. This is a lot more expensive, in my view too expensive for kingie jigging. But the 100% product is ideal for livebaiting because it is virtually invisible, in the water. To confirm what you’re using is fluorocarbon leader, simply hold a match or lighter to the tag end. It will burn black. It’s ideal for traces for large fish where every little thing counts. Mo Tackle has Sunline 80-pound fluorocarbon for $131.20 per 80m spool plus delivery, or $1.64 per metre.

Ours is $78 per 80m spool – 98 cents per metre, including delivery.

 

Like a sample? Send me an email including your postal address and we’ll pop two metres of fluoro coated mono and two metres of 100% fluorocarbon leader in the mail. Enough for a couple of kingfish or tuna traces.

 

Here’s what our customers say about our leader material.

We hooked some great snapper on soft plastics.  Our biggest snapper went 89cm and we thought we had a chance of winning the comp. Unfortunately a few other people thought the same. The largest snapper measured 96cm. One of the local blokes caught a massive amberjack. It measured 1.3metres or approx 30 kilos. Imagine hanging onto that thing as it’s trying to reef you.

 

 

 

Thanks for the 80 pound Fluorocarbon I received last week. It worked a treat on the weekend. I was buried into the reef and the line came up frayed but not broken. I think if it was mono I would have lost a memorable fish.
