Toothy fish require heavy biteproof shock tippets, and wire remains one of the few options for those who pursue them. But rigging wire shocks is a nightmare, and they cast horribly. Knottable steel leader material is nothing new, but TyGer Leaders took it up a notch by introducing the first stainless-steel knottable leader designed to handle toothy fish.
The wire base features a nylon coating to resist abrasion, yet it remains flexible enough to tie to monofilament using virtually all monofilament knots. And thanks to the nylon coating, knots won’t slip. Plus, the material allows a natural casting action. All diameters reel nicely through guides and rod eyes onto your reel.
Currently TyGer Leaders come in a nickel color in sizes ranging from 0.010-inch diameter 5-pound test up to 0.024-inch diameter 50-pound test. The material retails for $24 for a 30-foot spool and $6 for 10-foot lengths.
