BHP Tackle Fluorocarbon Wind-On Leaders

BHP Tackle Fluorocarbon Wind-On Leaders

Why BHP Wind-On Leaders are better... 3 design elements distinguish our leaders from others on the market: Spectra Leader Material is used instead of bulky dacron. Spectra is stronger and has a lower profile than dacron. Our 200lb hollow spectra is equivalent in diameter to 80lb dacron. This results in a stronger, smaller diameter, more compact leader. The fluoro is threaded all the way up to the loop inside the spectra, and the point where the mono enters the spectra is secured by what is known as the serve. Superior Serves. Methods of serving flurocarbon to braided line involve applying half hitches of waxed floss sealed with pliobond, heatshrink tubing or superglue. This results in large stiff serves which cannot run easily through guides and release clips, then onto the reel. Other methods use tiny crimps that can crack, or if improperly swaged, cut the fluoro. Our leaders avoid these methods. Instead, after removing all slack from the leader, we serve with an ultrathin spectra thread, applied under pressure, using a spinning bobbin. The result is the strongest, lowest profile serve possible, barely larger than the diameter of the flurocarbon itself. Double Wall Construction. Most other wind-on leaders use single wall dacron construction with a short double to create the end loop. Our leader section starts out as an 8-foot piece of hollow spectra that is completely doubled inside itself using a threading needle. This produces a double-walled, 4-foot length of spectra with a loop at one end. The fluorocarbon leader is inserted all the way up to the loop inside the spectra double splice, resulting in a double-finger-trap grip that never fails. The adjustable end loop makes the connection to the main line quick and easy. For extra holding power, spectra to fluoro splices on all BHP wind-ons are triple-bonded with Pliobond and Tacglue Tactical Adhesive before applying the serve.
