For years, Scientific Anglers' tippet materials were marketed as being something they weren’t. The diameters, breaking strengths, and performance just weren’t accurate—or up to par with their own rigorous standards. Scientific Anglers' new Freshwater nylon tippet is, simply put, the strongest and most reliable they have ever created, with the highest knot strength of anything we tested. Period. You can fish the other stuff, or you can Fish the Truth.
I use and abuse this line alot. Its good for literally every rig you tie. 5x is the juice for making your rigs or just as a little extra line on the leader/rig. The sidecutter is very useful. Helps get that perfect length without chewing your tippet.
