Maxima Ultragreen Leader Material
We use this for building leaders, butt section material, or for fishing when a durable and stiff leader is favorable. Swinging for Steelhead, bass fishing, and streamer fishing. Maxima Ultragreen Leader Material is recognized around the world as the "big fish" tippet material. It is the preferred material for fishing big game and by far the most popular Steelhead and Salmon tippet used with Spey rods because it turns over very well! The Maxima material ties knots very well and it holds it's strength!
