Heavy sinking (H8/3)

This incredible supple braided hooklink material sinks like a rock, being more than twice as heavy as fluorocarbon. It is engineered to follow every contour of the lake bed. Its knot strength is almost as high as its linear strength.

Construction

The H8 fast sinking line is braided with 8 carriers. For construction of the line different materials like PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) yarns are used. The H8 fast sinking line has a high number of picks per centimetre, is round, feels soft and the abrasion resistance is high.
