1. Invisibility -
The refractive index of fluorocarbon is close to that of water,
making it near invisible to water. This, of course, is extremely
important, particularly in clear water. The nylon that makes up
regular monofilament fishing line, on the other hand, is more visible
2. Abrasion Resistance-
offers more resistance to abrasion than monofilament because it is a
lot more dense. Using fluorocarbon as leader material can be a plus for
fish that either have rough mouths or sharp teeth.
3. UV Resistance -
impact of UV rays affects nylon plus weakening it over time, while
fluorocarbon has little impact on it. You can store your fluorocarbon
leader in the console of your boat without any damage, whereas
monofilament you are going to want to store in a tackle compartment or
in your garage to avoid UV damage.
does not absorb water at all, unlike other super fishing lines. This is
due to its high resistance and sensitivity. This also means that this
fishing line has the same resistance and sensitivity even under the
surface when dry. (Monofilament fishing line actually is strongest when
it has been soaking in the water for a while, this is why the IGFA tests
the “wet breaking strength” of a line used for a world record)
5. Rapid visibility:
One of the main factors that contribute to the low visibility of the
fishing line is its ability to distort the light passing through the
line because its refractive index is lower than that of water. A
fluorocarbon fishing line has this most impotant feature which makes it
very useful for fishing lines and procedure. The fluorocarbon coating
makes the product invisible underwater and thus helps attract more fish
into the fishing net.
6. Low Stretch -
Fluorocarbon is stiffer than nylon, this reasons make it to have lower
stretch and higher sensitivity to fish bites. With a low stretch line,
you can feel every little thing happening at the end of your line.
any case, the better benefit, in my analysis, is the density (of
fluorocarbon) because you have less slack in the line."That's on account
of fluorocarbon has less memory than monofilament. It has a tendency to
be straighter, so there's less line in the water between the fisherman
and the lure. But the truth that fluorocarbon has low memory implies it
can bring about issues on turning reels. Toward the end of a cast,
fluorocarbon can keep on shooting off the reels, bringing about a bird
nest of line.
8. It sinks -
is denser than water, which causes it to flow (unlike nylon). It's
great when you fish deep. It reduces or eliminates the bow / arc of the
line that is caused by floating.
9. Diameter -
Fluorocarbon has about the same diameter as the nylon monofilament with
the same tensile strength. However, because fluoro is difficult for
fish to see, you can upsize the pound test for extra resistance and
abrasion resistance without scaring shy fish.
10. Handling Power -
to the lack of nylon mono, fluorocarbon provides stronger hookups,just a
little bit less stretch, even at long distances will add some power to
drive that hook in.
