Fluoroflex Tippet - Tippets | Large

Description of the Fluoroflex Tippet - Tippets:

This exceptional leader and tippet material is made from 100% fluorocarbon (PVDF). Fluoroflex Plus is some of the strongest, thinnest fluorocarbon on the market with incredible strength; for example, 5 lb for 5x material. It is a slightly softer material than Fluoroflex and ties excellent knots. The refractive index (1.42) of Fluoroflex Plus in water (1.33) compared to nylon (1.62) makes it almost invisible to fish. Fluoroflex Plus, with a density of 1.72 (compared to nylon of 1.15), sinks quicker and gets below the surface tension for more effective dry fly, nymph and wet fly fishing.

Rating: 5 of 5 [5 of 5]
Reviewed by: Richard on 08/21/2008
Experience Level: Amatuer - Ownership: 4 - 12 Months
Pros: Has decreased the number of refusals when used with dry flies. The strength of the material remains constant. I haven't had any problems with weak spots.
Cons: Expense. I would think that flourocarbon would be cheaper at this stage of its technical phase.
