Absolute Saltwater nylon leaders have a 29% higher wet knot strength compared to our previous material and up to 40% higher wet knot strength when compared to our competitors. Our new paper-based leader packaging is now 100% recyclable. All materials, inks, and window are fully biodegradable to protect our streams and reduce our environmental footprint. The leader's medium-stiff material with a heavy butt section make for consistent delivery and abrasion resistance. The general purpose taper covers most saltwater applications.
