Hi gents just wondered if anyone had tried this tinted flouro from stren and could give me some feedback-

http://www.harrissportsmail.com/Models.aspx?PartnerID=4&ModelID=16571

Seems great value compared too others. Malc at ABC Beaumaris (our local dealer) is selling it for about £7.50 I think.
I've been using the varivas stuff from veals for about three years. It's been excellent but is twice the price.
Worth a try?

Cheers Nath.

For me, price doesnt come into it for Fluro . . . i have to have complete confidence in it. I've been using Seaguar & Sakuma with no issues. I have also been using the Tenryu (pish yellow :shock:) stuff, and whilst it seems very abrasion resistant, the diameter is high versus the others.

Havent tried the one you mention Nath sorry.

I've been using this in 70lb for rig bodies and 30lb for hooklengths in my b**t fishing for the last 2 or 3 years and have seen a decent improvement in fish caught over clear mono

Hadn't thought about using tinted leaders for lure fishing!

Cheers for all your replies guys!
I think I'll stick with the varivas stuff for the bassing.
If I do try it I'll let you know my thoughts.
Cheers Nath

Nathan,
I have to say that we tend to use FC for it's reduced visibility as well as it better durability, so coloured FC seems a bit odd to me.

I was reading something recently about some Fly Fishing guides, who were selecting different coloured Fluro's based on the water / light conditions. Cant remember exactly what they were saying about it, but i'll try & track it down.

Si,
When the japnese long liners start using coloured FC-then I will think about it. But FC was designed to be used in catching Tuna, which have exceptional eyesight, and they went for clear. I am not about to argue with the ocean emptying skills of the japanese.
