Absolute - this is the short and concise name of the new leader range from Scientific Anglers.
All Absolute monofilament leaders from Scientific Anglers are made from a special nylon blend that drastically reduces the absorption of water while ensuring optimum suppleness for high knot strength. Absolute nylon leaders and tippets have 29% higher wet knot strength compared to previous Scientific Anglers materials and up to 40% higher wet knot strength compared to many other products on the market. SA's new Absolute range comes with environmentally friendly paper-based packaging and is now 100% recyclable. All materials, inks and other components of the packaging are fully biodegradable to protect our rivers and oceans and reduce our ecological footprint.
The Absolute Salmon Leader is 12 ft. (3.65 m) long and is a true allrounder for most fishing scenarios and rivers. The strong butt section of the tapered leader ensures that the energy from the cast is perfectly carried along. The progressive taper allows for a harmonious reel out and a clean presentation. The material is particularly supple so that your tube or hook fly lands softly on the water. In short: a very high quality, mid-length leader for Salmon, Steelhead and Sea Trout in the river
