UNI Products Inc., a world leader in supplying spooled fly-tying materials, announces that the company will be the North American distributor of STROFT® GTM and STROFT® ABR monofilaments.
STROFT® is manufactured by the German company Waku, a world leader in nylon fishing-line technology.
STROFT® is a monofilament nylon that has been formulated and treated during production to produce a high-strength, controlled-stretch, material. A typical example is the 0.20 mm (.008inch, 3X) STROFT® with a strength of 4.20 kg (9.2 lbs).
This is 30% stronger than some other popular high-strength nylons.
STROFT® also provides superior knot strength. STROFT® GTM is produced using a multi-level tempering (heat-treatment) process to remove material stresses formed during extrusion, cooling, and drawing.
Simultaneously, silicon and PTFE (a type of fluorocarbon) molecules are diffused into the surface to increase tensile strength and maintain suppleness.
The extensive development behind this process yielded a product declared the overall best fishing line by a German body similar to Underwriter's Laboratory in North America.
STROFT® GTM is the monofilament of choice for most fishing conditions. STROFT® ABR, the company's latest product, has increased abrasion resistance while maintaining the high strength characteristics of GTM. This remarkable result is achieved by tempering the monofilament under a high pressure.
The pressure compresses the surface layer, producing a monofilament resistant to UV rays, scratches and coiling. Furthermore, the process improves wet tensile stress by reducing water adsorption. Clearly, STROFT® ABR is the monofilament line for anglers concerned about losing fish to weakened nylon as a result of rubbing against rough surfaces like rocks or piers. The STROFT will come in presentation of 25 m and 100 m, both in clear.
Freshwater Nylon Tapered Leader by Scientific Anglers
It’s all well and good to have a quality fly line, but without a good leader, you’re out of luck. Our nylon Freshwater leaders come in four different lengths and feature a longer, larger butt section for easy turnover. These new materials feature the highest wet knot strength in the industry and true-to-spec X sizes. Each leader comes in a two-pack, so you spend less time rooting through your vest for a new leader and more time actually fishing. You can fish the other stuff, or you can Fish the Truth.
