Seaguar Rippin’ disguises real mean streak

The soft, supple feel of Seaguar’s new Rippin’ monofilament disguises a real mean streak.
The thin diameter monofilament has remarkable knot and tensile strength and its low-stretch properties help to ensure a higher percentage of hooked fish, says the US manufacturer.
Seaguar also makes much of the premium line’s low memory, which combines with its small diameter to add distance to casting reach. UV protection further enhances the line’s performance qualities.
Rippin’ has proved particularly effective for the presentation of top water lures in testing and drew this praise from Seaguar pro-staffer and Elite Series pro Chris Zaldain: “I torture-tested the 20lb test in Florida during practice and found it amazingly strong, thin and limp.
“I used it around barnacle-lined dock pilings and swung 3lb to 4lb fish into the boat every day. On the third day I purposely didn’t re-tie all day and caught more than 30 fish to 6lb with zero failure.”
Seaguar’s Level Wind technology spools the line by laying it down side by side so that it never crosses and ensures maximise line strength without twist.
Seaguar’s Rippin’ monofilament comes on 200 yard spools in 4lb (0.172mm diameter) to 20lb (0.374mm) test. It ships to stores in the Autumn/Fall 2016.
