Thread: Tippets

  1. Default Tippets

    I wondering if I could use Berkley Fireline 8lb. as a tippet. Its size is 4X or apprx .007. I would attach it to a 3X tapered leader.
    Will this Fireline work. I love it because of its strength.
    I'm also looking at Premium Furled Leader uni-thread. Do you know anything about this? Or should I just stick with standard tapered leader. On E-Bay you can get this Furled Leader for as little as $4.50.
    Also the berkley fireline is smoke in color, thanks again

    I use furled leaders. I'll never go back. I get them for a bit cheaper. Joni makes a good one.

    I've used Vanish 6lb for tippet for some of my streamers.
    It's not the heat, it's the stupidity.
    What manner of jackassery will I be subjected to today?

    Thanks for the information, Steve Zimmett
