- New Finesse Fluorocarbon is Soft, Strong
- New Line Also Offers Smaller Diameter with No Memory
By Forrest Fisher
One thing is for sure, technology and the fishing industry work hand in hand to help us anglers be more efficient when we can find the time to get out and fish. Over the years, new fishing lines that offer upgraded performance have helped transform that sensitive feedback loop from lure to angler – it transfers that fish bite contact to allow for better fish-catching opportunity.
“When conditions change and fish get finicky, we downsize everything – our baits, our rods and our line – to coax more bites,” says Seaguar Pro-Staffer and Elite Series Angler Shaw Grigsby Jr. Grigsby adds, “While we are slowing presentations and downsizing gear, we’re still targeting big fish – that’s where the new Seaguar Finesse Fluorocarbon line can make a big difference. It’s exceptionally soft yet incredibly strong.”
The old adage, “You can’t fight Mother Nature” is so true. Inevitably she’s going to throw a cold front or high-pressure system your way that’s going to change the bite. So before despair sets in and fishing plans are scrapped, you adjust. That’s when you put down that flipping stick and grab your finesse rig to coax more bites. Finesse presentations change the game.
Seaguar Finesse Fluorocarbon is made using an exclusive double-structure process that combines two custom Seaguar fluorocarbon resins to create a line with smaller diameters and exceptional knot and tensile strength. It’s soft and supple with low memory, making it a great choice for finesse applications. It’s available on 150 yd. spools and formulated in four sizes for finesse presentations including 5.2 lb., 6.2 lb. 7.3 lb and 8.4 lb and ships to retail stores in the fall of 2016.
Finesse Fluorocarbon also features Level Wind Technology™, a Seaguar® exclusive. This process spools the line by laying it down side by side, never crossing itself. The final spool is as smooth as a spool of thread, with no cross contact marks, for maximum line strength without any line overstress or twist. Elite Series Pro Mark Menendez spooled up Finesse for testing and let the rod sit for several weeks. “When I picked up my rod outfitted with the Finesse Fluoro I was amazed. Zero memory and the best manageability of any line I have ever used. It flows off the spool just like braid!”
Finesse fishing is one of the most popular ways angler’s fish for bass. Seaguar research shows that over 96% of anglers use this technique when bass fishing, and over 8 out of 10 have purchased rods and reels specifically for finesse presentations. The launch of the line will be supported with educational videos and TV, print and electronic media to build awareness and trial for the new Finesse lines.
The Finesse lines follow the successful introduction of Seaguar Flippin’ Braid and Flippin’ Fluoro, the first technique-specific lines introduced by Seaguar last year. For more information, call 212-867-7040, write Kureha America LLC, 420 Lexington Avenue Suite 2510, New York, NY 10170.
