Absolute Tippet is made with proprietary copolymer blends that are designed to drastically reduce water absorption while maintaining an optimal suppleness for high knot strength. Absolute nylon leaders and tippet have a 29% higher wet knot strength compared to our previous material and up to 40% higher wet knot strength when compared to our competitors.
SA stuff never disappoints
This tippet has worked great for me so far! The spool is easy to use and the rubber does a good job of holding it in place so you don't lose it. The spool itself spins smoothly so you can easily get all the tippet you need without dropping or forcing it out.
I like this tippet well enough, the only issue is the weird rubber band that holds it in. Definitely easy to lose the tippet and unspool too much, then if you do, it's a little tough to get it back in and under the rubber band.
The first summer I went out I didn't realize how important Tippet truly was, honestly, I figured I'd just tie right onto the Leader... After my 5th Leader in a month. Smarter minds prevailed, and I snagged a 5x SA Absolute, haven't turned back since. Not only is it reliable, but the built in blade makes adding right from my pack simple without fumbling around.
