Laws of Leader Line Amended
|Print | Back|
For social order’s sake, amending laws should only be done through the proper processes: The public voices their opinion. Politicians write bills. Legislators vote. If majority rules, only then is there an amendment.
But not every culture abides entirely to the democratic processes. Take the society of serious anglers, as well as the roundtable of respected tackle manufactures (the avant-garde ones, anyways), all of which create their own set of rules when it comes to crafting products. Without the clamor, and companies willing to satisfy, cutting-edge equipment would not exist. At least until after the next election…
Aquateko, one of the chief game-changers in the fishing industry, is one such company. They demonstrated that by breaking the rules of common fishing law and introduced the clearly radical rotating InvisaSwivel and knotable, stretchable Knot2Kinky leader line. And as soon as the company heard the latest word on the water was that anglers wanted a break from ordinary heavy-pound-test wire leader in preference of thinner, lighter material, they didn’t wait for Parliamentary procedure. Instead, Aquateko immediately produced three new leaner weights: 18-, 12-, and 6-pound-test Knot2Kinky – the latter the lightest on the market.
Why such low tests and thin diameter in an alloy leader line? So that lightweight lures and flies could still keep their strike inducing wiggles and jiggles yet not be bitten off in a single chomp. And like Knot2Kinky’s heavy-duty brethren, these lighter leaders withstand the rigors of saltwater and the smaller tooth-laden species that swim about the sodium saturate waterways.

Also reminiscent of their seven bigger brothers, the three new narrower wire versions of Knot2Kinky are made of the same professional grade, stronger-than-titanium metals that stretch, so hard strikes don’t snap ‘em, and are kink proof and corrosion resistant. And all ten weights of Knot2Kinky still come in both 15- and 30-foot lengths.
The laws of heavy wire leader needed to be breached… And fast. Without a doubt, creating a lightweight tooth-proof, kink-proof wire leader was a unanimously acceptable change.
Amending the laws of line with lighter Knot2Kinky is finished…in a filibuster.
Fish should consider removing their teeth before striking a lure tethered with Knot2Kinky. The knottable leader line is kink and bite resistant; never corrodes; stretches to offer that “shock absorber” effect to better hook fish; and is tougher and stronger than conventional titanium wire. Knot2Kinky is the perfect defense against freshwater and saltwater fish that have a knack for slicing the line.
