Riverge Fluorocarbon, world's strongest Fluorocarbon
from Kureha Cemicals.
"Polyvinylidenfluorid" is the chemical name for a very innovative leader
material for fly fishing. We are talking about knotless, drawn leaders
and tippet material in different sizes. Fluorocarbon material was
develop for pipeline construction and is very resistant against
saltwater. 25 years ago Kureha Chemicals began the development of
fishing lines of Fluorocarbon for the japanese longlinefishing industry
which needed a strong line to withstand weeks in saltwater. Today there
are many different Fluorcarbon lines on the market. But without a doubt,
the best leader material, worldwide, from Kureha Chemicals is our Grand
Max. Absolute top knot strenght and breaking strenght.
Fluorcarbonmaterial has many advantages over Nylon. Our leaders do not
absorb any water, as opposed to Nylon, which will absorb water and
thereby loses up to 40% of its strenght. It is no wonder then, at the
end of a long fishing day, a 11 inch trout breaks your leader!
