Shock Leader

Showing 2 of 2 results
Shock leader is an extremely important part of any set up for casting long distances. Its purpose is to prevent the weight from 'cracking off' the mainline and potentially causing serious injury to anyone in the vicinity.
Many people suggest that the shockleader breaking strain should be ten times the weight being cast - so if casting five ounces then the shock leader should be 50lb.
Some shock leader is also very suited for making rig bodies.
