With a change in IGFA regulations, many anglers are starting to use smaller game reels with braid backing and a monofilament top-shot. American-made Tufline hollow core Braid is now being distributed by Composite Developments in Albany. Tufline’s 16-carrier hollow core braid is ideal for this purpose. Being hollow, it is easily spliced to 24, 37 and 60kg mono. Simply insert the end of the monofilament approximately two feet into the braid and use floss to whip the area where the mono enters the braid. The braid is rated at 60kg and comes in 700m spools, ideal for top-shotting. It is white in colour, making it easy to see while avoiding messy dyes and keeping the line nice and limp.
Distributed by Composite Developments, Albany and available through stockists nation-wide.
