AFTCO has partnered with Sunline Japan to offer a premium 100% fluorocarbon leader
Saiko Pro FC Leader: AFTCO has partnered with Sunline Japan to offer a premium 100% fluorocarbon leader for saltwater fishing. Saiko Pro FC Leader is designed with very high resistance to abrasion but with a finish that is both supple yet hard. Abrasion resistance is reportedly up to 20% stronger than leading competitors and the leader material also has superior knot strength.
saltwater applications, there are also strengths to suit freshwater anglers
The leader material is offered in AFTCO's Secure Spool simplifying the task of leader storage and eliminating messy, uncoiled, and disorganized leader spools. It will be available in strengths from 12lb through 300lb test and in both clear and pink. MSRP will range from $12 - $99 depending on the size you wish to purchase.

AFTCO continues to grow their brand and it's great they are offering product for both the male and female angler. That Women's Reaper Technical Fleece looks to be a popular item and we're a little more than curious as to how the new Saiko Pro FC leader might handle in freshwater applications. Zander could certainly make use of that waterproof pocket in the new Overboard Submersible Shorts to keep his Instagram account handy when we're on the water.
