New York, NY - Fishing in saltwater is the ultimate test – of mental and physical toughness, and of tackle, from lure to rod and reel and everything in between. Oversized predators that swim in briny waters are experts at exploiting the weakest link in that long chain, in an effort to gain their freedom from an angler’s grasp. All too often, that inadequacy resides within the leader, linking the main line to an artificial or living bait, a leader that isn’t ready for what lies ahead.
But those days are over.
Seaguar, the world’s foremost authority and originators of 100% fluorocarbon fishing lines, is poised to introduce the thinnest, strongest leader material ever made. A leader with exceptional knot and tensile strength, complementing its innate abrasion resistance. A leader that is ready to withstand the rigors of saltwater predators and their unforgiving environment. A leader that will change the way you think about fluorocarbon.
At ICAST 2018, Seaguar will unveil Gold Label.
Seaguar Gold Label is designed to exceed the expectations of the most demanding saltwater anglers. The first superlative you’ll notice with Gold Label is that this 100% fluorocarbon leader is exceptionally thin. Indeed, for any particular break test rating, Seaguar Gold Label is as much as 23% thinner than any other 100% fluorocarbon leader made by Seaguar.
Why does using the thinnest diameter in a 100% fluorocarbon leader matter? Mark Davis, Seaguar pro angler and host of BigWater Adventures TV, encapsulates the advantages by noting that, “the thinnest diameter leader at any pound test rating means that with Gold Label, I can make extremely stealthy presentations without the leader impeding the bait’s natural action and bite-triggering abilities.” Baits rigged on Seaguar Gold Label will swim more naturally, triggering more bites and putting more fish in the box than ever before.
Don’t let Gold Label’s industry-leading thin diameters fool you; it retains the same legendary knot and tensile strength that characterizes Seaguar leaders. Davis remarks that, “knots that I tie with Gold Label cinch down like a dream. I typically tie FG knots for my braid-to-leader connections; because Gold Label is so thin and manageable, those knots are easier to tie than ever. They are incredibly compact and bullet-proof. And the Palomar knots that I use for lures – they are 100% reliable.” Gold Label’s high tensile strength means that the leader won’t fail when put under extreme stress, like a powerful hookset into a bony mouth, or a short-range battle with a finned opponent. “You’ve seen what happens when a big predator fish is boatside, especially on relatively light tackle: pandemonium! With Gold Label, I already know how the battle is going to end: with that fish, and all of its attitude, on board.”
Each of these Gold Label advantages complements the well-established benefits of 100% fluorocarbon leaders, attributes that result in more strikes and more fish landed. Fluorocarbon is far more abrasion-resistant than monofilament leaders, incredibly important when pulling fish out of reefs, wrecks, rocks, and dock pilings. In addition, fluorocarbon leaders are virtually invisible beneath the surface, a result of the leader’s index of refraction which nearly matches that of water. Davis notes that, “with Gold Label, the visibility is even lower than that of other fluorocarbon leaders, simply because Gold Label is so much thinner. That’s a game-changer!”
Gold Label’s paradigm-shifting characteristics are made possible because Seaguar, the originators of fluorocarbon fishing lines, is still the only company that completely controls every aspect of fluorocarbon line production, from resin development and preparation to extrusion, winding and packaging. Indeed, Gold Label is prepared using Seaguar’s proprietary co-extrusion method that yields a unique Double-Structure leader. This exclusive process unites two different fluorocarbon resins: a strong, sensitive fluorocarbon core and a soft, supple, fluorocarbon exterior, into the finest leader available, one that has earned the title of Gold Label. This is not hype or hyperbole; it’s science and fact.
Seaguar Gold Label will be released in six versatile pound test ratings, ranging from 15 lb test to 40 lb test, on 25 yard spools. Look for Seaguar Gold Label on shelves in early 2019 with MSRP $18.99-34.99 depending on pound test.
Mark Davis concludes by noting that, “big fish aren’t lost, they are given away. With Gold Label, I’m not giving those memory-makers away; I’m turning them into TV stars instead.” Seaguar Gold Label sets the new standard in premium 100% fluorocarbon leaders – fish it once, and you’ll understand why Seaguar Gold Label is Always The Best!
