Here’s a product we think you’ll find quite interesting. Hi Seas introduced a Fluorocarbon leader at the 2009 ICAST show in Orlando. Since that time I’ve been using it as my primary leader material, and we’ve even included it in some of our long range charter gift bags so that other folks can become introduced to it’s benefits.  It’s a unique product, unlike anything we’ve worked with before in Fluorocarbon form. While there have been some colored fluorocarbon leaders that gained some following such as Yo-Zuri’s pink leader, our opinion was always that tinting an otherwise invisible line didn’t make sense – from an intuitive logic standpoint, why color something that should be invisible in the first place? Well, there’s one reason I didn’t consider… Your line acts as a transmission cable for light. In strong sunlight the line will conduct that energy and become visible. Hi Seas got around that issue by adding some tint to diffuse the light. But, they went a step further, actually several steps further. This line transitions into FOUR TINTS, breaking up the light transmission and making the line even more invisible to fish. It has a faster sink rate than mono based upon a standard fluorocarbon property relating to it’s specific gravity. The material is less visible, and with a transitioning tint it will be less visible under all light conditions. Interesting product, and something we think you’ll want to try. I’ve now been using this leader for over a year, and I have been impressed with it’s performance. It’s produced tuna for me when other guys didn’t get bit. It’s especially beneficial in strong sunlight conditions. We’ve tested the product both from a line test standpoint, diameter to test, and from a “bite” perspective. By all counts this is excellent stuff.

In addition to the benefits mentioned above, the Hi Seas Quatro price is far more attractive than some of the better known products that are on the market now.  The price advantage is a major consideration, or at least should be given how much fluorocarbon we typically run these days. I tend to run straight braid, then connected to Fluorocarbon leader on many of my own rigs. I’ll use an entire spool of the FL line on top of my braid. That’s a great way to put the odds in your favor in terms of getting bit, especially when fishing bait. This is my go-to line of choice, price is one consideration, but if it didn’t get bit then who cares about price. Well, the stuff does indeed get bit quite well indeed.
