Flourocarbon tippet is nearly invisible underwater which gives the angler a great advantage. When you can buy it for the price of nylon that's hard to beat! It also last forever unlike nylon so why not stock-up!
All of the manufacturers "test" their products and give you the results of their test. This company believes that this is a reasonable analysis of the strength of this product. You may want to look at the tippet shootout that was recently published in Flyfisherman Magazine. Umpqua's tippet did not fair well given the testing method they used. I have used a lot of their tippet over the years with good luck ... mostly their nylon. I now only use Trouthunter tippet for smaller flouro (5X and 6X) because it seems so strong compared to other brands. Seguar is also very good flouro. In the bigger sizes (0X and 1X) we don't have too much to worry about here in CO but in other places the lower rating may give you problems. I have used some of the tippet you're asking about to build leaders and it has been fine for use here in Colorado.

Every brand is diffrent. I used the 8lb all winter steelheading and it held up nicely.. This is one of the best deals around.
