Fluorocarbons fashion: what’s left after


This indirectly indicates the fact of constant rapid decline in cost in the wholesale network that is difficult to explain only by competing manufacturers.

On the other hand, it should be noted that flyuorokarbonovaya leska took a firm place in the Arsenal of many anglers, and not just the anglers.

The angler need to understand whether it’s personally new fishing product for any occasions.

Before you make any conclusions you need to compare, in this case fluorocarbon line with the classic nylon (nylon, duderonomy, shanaway, or what else is all different brand names of the same polyamide).


The density of water is the natural reservoir is 1.05 to 1.09 g/CC, the density of nylon -1,13-1,14, and the fluorocarbon is around 1,78.

Based on these numbers, it is obvious that fluorocarbon sinks faster than monofilament.

In literature the statement that the speed of utopanie fluorocarbonates of the line 2.5 times higher. This is not true.

The question arises: in which cases is useful to increase the speed of the fall bait?

In float fishing, the increase in the velocity of the falling bait is useful when you need to quickly “break” the layer of small greedy fish (bleak, verkhovka, small roach), and to quickly deliver the bait to standing on the bottom bait big fish.

This problem is solved by offset shipping to the shepherd and the weight gain shipping to the permissible limit of sensitivity of the equipment.

It makes sense to use fluorocarbon as the main line in very light tackle when fishing in contaminated bodies of water with large surface tension of water.

For example, when fishing a plug of carp and Amur. In crosswind conditions, the use of fluorocarbon allows you to flood the line between the tip plug the rod and float without the use of additional pellets.

It makes sense to use this line as their main fishing method long casting tooling, when the mirror surface of water covered with foil, for example, industrial discharges.

In feeder fishing heavy fluorocarbon can be invaluable in long leashes on the course when the easy bait should lie on the bottom.

In spinning fishing heavy fishing line makes the job easier with light lures, for example, pogrugenie rubber.


The zombie is the idea that fluorocarbon fishing line invisible in water.

Refractive index of water is 1.3 (this is the average value for the reservoirs of the Moscow region), nylon – 1.52 m, the fluorocarbon – of 1.42.

However, apart from the refraction of light is even light reflection, there is such a thing as the quality of the surface of the scaffold, therefore, the assertion, that fluorocarbon is invisible in water, at least, irresponsible, if not false.

Look at the picture woods in tap water.

Draw your own conclusions.


In float fishing is much more important than the optical properties of a scaffold is its rigidity. Soft line was less alarming the fish, and the hard line rather conveys the bite alarm that is on the float. In each case it is necessary to reflect before making a snap.


Fluorocarbon was originally created for the chemical industry (petrochemicals). In its resistance to aggressive media material is quite unique.

It almost does not absorb water, so over time does not change its characteristics. In addition, this polymer is resistant to ultraviolet light. In everyday language, the fluorocarbon is aging very slowly.


“Fluorocarbonates have fishing line, much better than nylon, abrasive resistance, it is therefore advisable to use them in addition to the main fishing line in the form of protective leashes, especially in “tough” places, many bottom barriers” – quote taken from publications.

This statement, in my opinion, requires decoding.

If you do not take into account the possibility of meeting at the bottom of the line with broken bottles and cans, the main enemy of the scaffold molluscum dracena.

Edges of the valves of the shell so sharp, that it is enough to touch the line of this “underwater scalpel” and there is a tangible injury.

Even worse when the fishing line touches dracena during sweeps – an easy snapshot of bleed and confusion about what was it?

Such cases are relatively rare when fishing with a float snap-in on the river or lake, but, for example, very often when fishing on the canal. Moscow and the reservoirs of the channel.

Constantly face this problem of the master feeder.

Often incidents occur during catching bream way distance casting a snap.

Bream loves dracena colony, where it feeds, collecting amphipods and worms.

The bait has to be put on the bottom, that is directly to shellfish. Here, the fluorocarbon is simply no substitute, even despite the fact that we have to increase the diameter of the filament lead.

In catching predators also makes sense to use fluorocarbon as leaders, but not to fish didn’t see the thread, and in order to protect yourself from teeth.


Parameter that does not emphasize the angler the buyer.

Fluorocarbon like polymer having intermolecular hydrogen bonds, is significantly inferior in strength to the classic nylon. The difference is particularly noticeable when comparing the thinnest of threads, but they need more poplavochnikov than the spinnings.

Summarizing, we can recommend fluorocarbon fishing line primarily fishermen-professionals with sufficient experience in the design of various snap-ins.

Every time you have to choose what is more important: speed utopanie, abrasion resistance or strength and stiffness.

Flyuorokarbonovaya leska does not burn like nylon. If you set fire to its tip, and remove flame, combustion will stop immediately.
