ICAST 2012 Coverage

What the... ?!? Sunline Goes Finesse!


Date: 7/22/12
Location: Orlando, FL
Admission: Buyers & Press Only
Manufacturer: Sunline
Reviewer: Team TackleTour

There are only a handful of truly premium line brands out there today, but few can match the pro-staff roster of Sunline. Aaron Martens, Dean Rojas, Mike McClelland, Brent Ehrler, Takahiro Omori, are but a few of the names of which we speak. We stopped by their booth at ICAST 2012 and spoke with Mike McClelland about what's new for Sunline in 2013.


Mike McClelland shows us what's new with Sunline for 2013.


Finesse FC: Mike McClelland is known for throwing jerkbaits but he'll readily admit, when the bite gets tough, just about every tope level pro on tour today will turn to finesse. He was anxious to show us Sunline's new Finesse FC, a line formulated to deliver the right level of soft, supple handling while at the same time maintain high abrasion resistance for fishing in the rocks and submerged tree tops.


Sunline goes technique specific with a new Finesse Fluorocarbon.


It's designed to deliver soft, supple handling characteristics without sacrificing abrasion resistance.


SX1 Braid: Also new for Sunline this year is yet another braid. Their SX1 Braid was formulated with feedback from Aaron Martens and Brent Ehrler and it is a braid designed to fish what else? Finesse. Available in strengths from 10 to 50 pounds, the individual strands in this braid have been specially processed for a sleek finish, reducing line friction and eliminating the need for applied coatings that can wear off over time.

Also new with Sunline is a new Finesse Braid.

SX1 is designed to float through guides with minimal friction and noise all without any special coatings that can wear off. 

Conclusion: Someone forgot to tell Sunline our finesse themed year was 2011 not 2012! Oh well, what the... In any event, as Mike McClelland alluded to, finesse tactics are never out of the picture, so we look forward to trying these new lines when they are available and mixing things up because after all, there is Creature Fever in Finesse as well!
