Question & Answer

    • It tells you the strength in pounds right on the packaging. This one shows 8.8 lbs. My experience is that the strength of tippet decreases quickly with use. This is likely due to twists and deformation when it's in a fishes mouth. I find myself removing and tying on new tippet frequently.

      Thinner tippet (weaker) = better presentation in the water - especially when fishing on the surface.

About Scientific Anglers

Scientific Anglers was founded in 1945 by friends and fellow fishermen who introduced the first modern plastic-coated tapered fly line to the market, a revolutionary design in the fly-fishing industry. Scientific Anglers fly lines continued to break new ground with the introduction of the first contemporary floating and sinking fly lines, and Scientific Anglers fly rods cemented the brand’s focus on developing leading-edge technologies that set the industry standard. Scientific Anglers’ commitment to designing and producing the best possible equipment has defined the sport’s history and continues to shape its future, allowing beginning and expert anglers alike to make the most of every cast.
