Thinner. Stronger. A new age of fluoro leaders is dawning, and the outlook? Good as gold.

HumpOne 900You’ve likely heard it before but fishing in saltwater is truly the ultimate test–especially when it comes to tackle. Oversized predators that swim in briny waters are experts at exploiting the weakest link in that long chain, and all too often, history has shown that inadequacy resides within the leader.

Thankfully, those days are over.

Seaguar, the originators of 100-percent fluorocarbon fishing lines, has introduced Seaguar Gold Label: the thinnest, strongest leader material ever made. This next-gen formula is designed to deliver exceptional knot and tensile strength, complementing its innate abrasion resistance. It’s a leader that has already been proven ready to withstand the rigors of saltwater predators and their unforgiving environment…and it will change the way you think about fluorocarbon.Hump2 900“I started using Seaguar fluorocarbon leaders for stripers because big bass are known for being finicky and leader shy, particularly during daylight hours,” said Capt. Bob Humphrey (pictured above and at top), who guides striper fishing in the waters of Maine’s Casco Bay. “I need something that’s virtually invisible, but will withstand the abrasion when big bass sound into the kelp beds and rocks, so the line also has to be super strong and durable. That’s particularly important when you have paying clients.

“New Seaguar Gold Label Flouro allows me to up my game,” Humphrey continued. “Its thinner diameter makes it less visible, allows for a more natural bait presentation and facilitates easier and quicker knot tying when the bass are blitzing.” GoldLabelSpool900

Seaguar Gold Label is designed to exceed the expectations of the most-demanding saltwater anglers. The first superlative you’ll notice with Gold Label is that this 100-percent fluorocarbon leader is exceptionally thin. Indeed, for any particular break-test rating, Seaguar Gold Label is as much as 23-percent thinner than any other 100-percent fluorocarbon leader made by Seaguar.

Why does using the thinnest diameter in a 100-percent fluorocarbon leader matter? Good question.

“The thinnest-diameter leader at any pound test rating means that with Gold Label, I can make extremely stealthy presentations without the leader impeding the bait’s natural action and bite-triggering abilities,” echoed Mark Davis, Seaguar pro angler and host of BigWater Adventures TV.SeaguarADD1 900Baits rigged on Seaguar Gold Label will swim more naturally, triggering more bites and putting more fish in the boat than ever before. And don’t let Gold Label’s industry-leading thin diameters fool you; it retains the same legendary knot and tensile strength that characterizes Seaguar leaders.

Finicky Bass? Gin-Clear Water? Throw This Line

“Knots that I tie with Gold Label cinch down like a dream,” Davis continued. “I typically tie FG knots for my braid-to-leader connections; because Gold Label is so thin and manageable, those knots are easier to tie than ever. They are incredibly compact and bullet-proof. And the Palomar knots that I use for lures–they are 100-percent reliable. And with Gold Label, the visibility is even lower than that of other fluorocarbon leaders, simply because Gold Label is so much thinner. That’s a game-changer!”

Fluorocarbon is far more abrasion-resistant than monofilament leaders, incredibly important when pulling fish out of reefs, wrecks, rocks, and dock pilings. In addition, fluorocarbon leaders are virtually invisible beneath the surface, a result of the leader’s index of refraction which nearly matches that of water.Seaguar2 900Gold Label’s paradigm-shifting characteristics are made possible because Seaguar, the originators of fluorocarbon fishing lines, is still the only company that completely controls every aspect of fluorocarbon line production, from resin development and preparation to extrusion, winding and packaging. Gold Label is prepared using Seaguar’s proprietary co-extrusion method that yields a unique Double-Structure leader. This exclusive process unites two different fluorocarbon resins: a strong, sensitive fluorocarbon core and a soft, supple, fluorocarbon exterior, into what many believe is the finest leader available anywhere.
