A new fusing process improves smoothness, doubles durability and extends colour fastness, says FirstDart.

OEM line manufacturer, FirstDart Fishing Tackle, will be showing off its new Smoothex Plus for the first time to the North American market at ICAST.

The new line has been hailed as ‘one of the best’ fishing braids in the world thanks to a new fusing process that improves smoothness, doubles durability and extends the colour fastness by more than 50%.

The company’s Global Marketing Manager, Simon Henton, said: “Our OEM line programme has been successful for many North American customers. Our offering of monofilament lines, braided lines, tapered lines, fluorocarbon lines and fly lines makes us unique in the industry.

“This year, alongside the Smoothex Plus, we will have an upgrade to one of our braid lines and have been working with our sister hook manufacturing company, Wuxi Greenwave, to offer a range of ready-made rigs.

“ICAST is very important in allowing us to present our OEM line programme to major North American companies and brands. We are also pleased to see a number of visitors from South America too.

“We have many existing customers around the world and the show is a great opportunity to renew friendships, get feedback on market developments and demonstrate new products.

“And, of course, we are always looking to find new customers that can benefit from our ‘one-stop shop’ line programme.”
