APPLICATIONS | F.A.Q.
Select one of the above questions to find out it's answer.
FLUOROCARBON GENERAL QUESTIONS:
Fluorocarbon is made from Hydrogen, Carbon, and Fluoride. This combination of elements creates the molecule known as PVDF, or Poly-Vinyl-i-Dene-Fluoride.
No. Just because the product says 100% fluorocarbon does not mean it is just like any other on the market. Only Seaguar makes fluorocarbon lines and leaders from beginning to end without any outside companies involved. The difference of quality varies from brand to brand.
Nylon is a less expensive material and easier to extrude (produce).
GENERAL BRAID QUESTIONS:
Braided line seems to have a growing trend of uses and applications. From top-water to drop-shot applications, braid definitely has its benefits with respect to sensitivity, castability and less stretch. We recommend using braid with a short fluorocarbon top-shot leader. Combine Seaguar Kanzen, Smackdown, or Threadlock braid with the matching diameter of any Seaguar fluorocarbon leader and you’ll get the benefits of premium quality fishing line and leader.
Since Seaguar is known throughout the world as the premium Fluorocarbon creator, they decided to focus their leading edge technology towards producing superior braided lines to fill the needs of anglers that prefer braid for specific fishing applications. By combining Seaguar braid and Seaguar fluorocarbon, you’ll have the best of both worlds.
SEAGUAR FLUOROCARBON QUESTIONS:
Seaguar is the only company that makes their own resins for each line and leader from beginning to end.
There are a few fluorocarbons that are more expensive. Seaguar costs a little bit more because the resins and extrusion process are all of the highest quality and the latest technology and are manufactured ONLY for lines and leaders. We cannot speak for the competition.
b. Double Structure Technology - Our TATSU line, Blue Label (FC) and Fluoro Premier leaders, and Grand Max, and Grand Max FX tippets are all Double Structure, a Seaguar exclusive process that injects two different molten resins through a special die. The resins are extruded as one solid piece. The harder, inside resin contributes to the Tensile Strength, while the softer, outside resin creates greater Knot Strength.
c. Price - Leaders and Tippets are more difficult to produce because of double structure and the resins involved, therefore line is less expensive and leader/tippets cost more.
d. Resins - Since Seaguar is the only fluorocarbon brand in the world that makes its own resins, different exclusive resins are used for all of our products. The resins in our line are different than the resins in our leaders.
Double Structure is the combining of two distinct 100% fluorocarbon resins into one solid piece. The exterior resin is soft and contributes to higher knot strength, while the interior resin is hard and contributes to higher tensile strength. A Seaguar Exclusive. Seaguar’s Double Structure products are: TATSU, Fluoro Premier, Blue Label, Grand Max, and Grand Max FX
No, being that it is a solid piece and not layered or coated, it cannot separate.
Yes, all Seaguar lines are soft enough to be used on any reel for any type of fishing.
