Hooklink

Post by cookiesdaughtersdad »

Nearly out of my old coated/strippable semi stiff hooklink material and was looking for some recommendations for some new stuff.
Around the 20lb breaking strain, a choice of colours and preferably heavy.

I can recommend the ESP tungsten loaded in semi stiff. Find it very easy to work with and strips back without splitting. They also do an extra stiff and soft version.

Popped past the local shop and came away with the ESP stuff, was nearly twice the price per meter of the Korda N trap but felt better in the hand and was recommended on here :wink:
