FirstDart will once again be exhibiting at China Fish with its sister hook manufacturing company, Greenwave Fishing Tackle.
Among the recent developments on display in Beijing will be the new nylon line with what the company says is vastly superior knot strength. “Although FirstDart has a high knot strength product, this Super Power Knot nylon takes the sector to a new level,” says the Singapore-based manufacturer.
“Using new polymers that have been specially blended, FirstDart is able to retain over 80% of the tensile strength of the nylon while maintaining the soft, supple and smooth handling characteristics demanded by today’s modern fisherman.
“We have been very pleased with this development which gives us an additional product that offers new levels of performance for demanding markets. With Super Power Knot a fisherman can use finer lines, resulting in longer casts and more fish without sacrificing overall strength.”
In the fly section FirstDart says that it is excited about its advanced tippet material. Well known for its strong, reliable and value-for-money tippets in clear and coloured versions, the company says that it was getting requests from customers for a higher performance one too.
This new material features higher tensile strength, allowing fishermen to use a stronger tippet material with no increase in diameter. It is called Acero after the market-leading nylon of the same name.
Alongside this, FirstDart will have a new two-colour indicator tippet and some upgrades to its braided loops.
