The TUF-Line Lead Core is specialty trolling line comprised of a dense lead center tightly braided with high tenacity nylon monofilament yarn. Featuring a 99.99% lead core, TUF-Line's "pure" lead construction offers a smaller diameter than standard lead core lines. Utilizing multicolored braided nylon monofilament, the Lead Core line displays a color metering measuring each 10 yards that enables the angler to instantly determine depth. A must for every angler who needs extra weight for deep water trolling.
The sink rate of TUF-Line Lead Core is affected by many aspects, mainly boat speed, lure weight and current. There is, however, a simple formula for standard sink rates under a specific condition, which applies to TUF-Line's entire selection of Lead Core lines. When trolling at slow to medium speeds (1.5-2.5mph) using a one-ounce lure in no current; the typical depth will be 6 to 6-1/2 feet of depth per color or 1.25 feet per 2 yards of line. This depth will be affected, either up or down, by .25 feet for every 1/4 ounce of lure weight difference. The depth does not vary greatly between pound tests due to the line drag created by the larger pound test lines.
We offer the TUF-Line Lead Core Line in three sizes: 12lb, 15lb and 18lb. Spool size: 100yd.
