We’ve all heard the many benefits of fluorocarbon line for fly-fishing tippets. The material has a refractive index close to that of water, making it nearly invisible. It has a density four times that of monofilament that ensures it sinks more rapidly. It is more abrasion-resistant than mono and provides excellent knot strength. Fluorocarbon isn’t affected by UV degradation and will not absorb water.

No one argues these qualities; they just don’t like paying a fortune for little bitty quantities of fluoro. Airflo solves this little problem with its line of Sightfree fluorocarbon leaders, available from 3- to 80-pound-tests. Already a no. 1-selling tippet material in Europe, Sightfree is popular with anglers because it is supplied in double-quantity spools of 55 yards starting at only $9.95 — half the price of many other fluorocarbon tippet brands.
