New "Perfect Fly" PerfectFlex Mono Tippet:
We are pleased to announce that our new "Perfect Fly" PerfectFlex Mono Tippet is
now available. Not only do you get what I think is the best tippet there is for trout
fishing, you get almost twice as much as you normally do on most of the spools. Our
spools have 55 yards of material versus the normal 30 yards that's on most
manufacturer's spools. Our plastic spools are the same basic size and made to fit
most tippet dispensers, but there's more tippet on them.
The biggest difference in mono is the hardness and stretchability of the material.
Mono that is fairly stiff will not stretch easy but it resist abrasion much more than
softer mono. It is not very flexible and tends to want to stay straight. It resist
bending. It has a tendency to create drag on small dry flies and is not useful for that
type of tippets. It is okay where the tippet is subjected to abrasive material such as
shells or other sharp or abrasive material in the water.
The opposite of the stiff mono is mono that bends and stretches easily. It is very
forgiving and very soft. It doesn't take much abrasive contact to destroy it. It is very
flexible and doesn't resist bending like the harder mono. It would not be very
practical where it would be in contact with abrasive material. The soft mono would
break where it received much abrasion.
Perfect Fly PerfectFlex Tippet is a happy medium to those two extremes. It is mono
that is neither very hard or extremely soft. It stretches reasonable well but offers
some resistance to stretching. It stretches just enough to prevent breaking the
tippet from sudden shocks but it will not stretch enough to weaken it. It is elastic
enough to return to its original shape. This medium memory allows the tippet to
stretch before breaking but not to the point that it doesn't return to its original
shape. It works best under most fly fishing conditions.
Perfect Fly PerfectFlex Tippet is neither hard or extremely soft. It resist some
abrasion without breaking but not to the point it greatly reduces other qualities. It
works great with small dry flies. Stiff mono tends to cause the small dry flies to drift
unnaturally. Our "Perfect Fly" PerfectFlex doesn't. It ties easily and retains its
memory well. We think it is the best mono to use for fly line tippets.
We will have our on spools of fluorocarbon tippet available in the near future.
Please give our new Mono tippet a try. I promise you will like it. There's a 100%
satisfaction guarantee and free shipping.
