Sea Fishing Shock Leaders
You've spent time putting together a neat, well thought out rig and spent time loading and securing bait to your hook. Then it comes to your cast... We've all had that sickening experience at cast when all your efforts end in the crack of your mainline! Modern Carbon Fibre rods can generate a massive amount of casting force with even a 3 ounce lead, meaning even 40lb mainline will snap on cast. What you really need is a shock leader to resist all of that casting energy and send your bait off to where the fish are feeding!
We stock a wide range of monofilament and fluorocarbon shock leaders in a variety of diameters and casting weights, designed to keep you in touch with your terminal tackle at the point of cast. Don't rely on blind luck and hope that your cast won't break your main line. Invest in shock leader!
Tapered Shock Leaders
For those who use smaller diameter main lines or the new breed of casting braids, tapered shock leaders allow smaller knots between mainline and leader and a less harsh transition in line diameter. Perfect for powerful casters with modern Carbon distance casting rods, tapered leaders allow you to get out further to where the fish are feeding without the danger of mainline separation during casts.
