When it comes to tying up your Zig rigs, the new ZIG line is the perfect choice of hook link material and is purpose designed for this type of situation.
Zig Line has reduced stretch, making it a fantastic line for surface fishing as well as helping to produce strong hook holds.on zigs and on the surface.
low diameter for its breaking strain at just 0.22mm for the 7lb version; 0.25mm for 9lb; and the 11lb breaking strain line is 0.28mm. The low diameter makes it harder for the fish to see it mid-water, or on the surface due to its reduced silhouette, and these camouflage properties are aided by its tinted green colour.
Despite these properties it is still quite a tough line and has a very high knot strength as long as you are careful, with Palomar and knotless knots being ideal.
Zig Line comes on 100m spools
SUBbraid, This is a super-fast-sinking main line braid that's available in a subtle SUB-green colouring and two breaking strains. It attracted plenty of acclaim during the exhaustive testing period, with Elliott Gray in particular becoming a huge advocate. Aside from its unrivalled sinking properties, SUBbraid has no stretch, which means that feeling for the drop becomes even more advantageous. The braid transmits tiny lake-bed details back to the rod on the drop, and when pulled back, allowing you to clip up to a spot without getting the marker rod out of the bag! If you find yourself on fish in an unfamiliar swim, then being able to feel for that critical drop with absolute assurance is such an edge! SUBbraid should be used with a leader of some description, to protect the flanks of our precious quarry. This can be the fluorocarbon that Elliott and James Turner prefer, which also gives a little buffer during the fight, or a length of leadcore or tubing sufficient to prevent the braid from coming into contact with the carp's flanks. SUBbraid is available in 15lb and 20lb, on spools holding 1200m and 450m.
