When north-eastern Florida-based Aquateko released its InvisaSwivel – a little piece of terminal tackle that is both transparent and neutrally buoyant – anglers immediately recognised that this tiny device might one day make traditional corrosive metal swivels obsolete.
The company says that having experienced similar ‘wow’ moments with its newest product, saltwater anglers are now realising that Knot2Kinky ‘NiTinol’ leader wire may be another authentic tackle breakthrough in the making.
Captain Gary Anderson plies the Gulf waters around Venice, Florida, hunting everything from black tip sharks to gill rattling tarpon and menacing barracuda. But when the spring kingfish run begins, the real fun ensues.
Having previously discovered the InvisaSwivel for super stealth rigging, Anderson immediately felt confident that this new Knot2Kinky wire would be another ‘game changer’, particularly for the battling tackle-shredding kings.
“Knot2Kinky wire ties like regular fishing line,” says Anderson. “Just tie a simple clinch or perfection loop knot to your hook and then you’re done. What’s amazing, though, is that much like a premium monofilament line that has stretch built in, Knot2Kinky is elastic, offering 10% to 15% stretch – it acts like a strong rubber band, generating more hook-ups.
“And when fish surge and go nuts, you’ve got a built-in shock leader that’s tooth-proof and kink resistant.”
Anderson describes his special ‘Aquateko Rig’. “We often run a live ladyfish with a 3/0 no-tie hook tethered to 3ft of 25lb knottable Knot2Kinky wire which is then tied to a section of 30lb Cajun red line and an InvisaSwivel.”
