The NEW 2018 Ocean Record Shock Leader is a new Nylon material, developed specifically for blue water pelagic lure fishing. With a unique Fluoride-based coating (called SP-F), for greatly improved abrasion resistance and ‘manageability’, and marked increase in diameter-breaking strain ratio. This means for example line diameter 0.910mm (Japanese #30) in Varivas’s standard nylon shock leader is rated at 100LBS breaking strain, but in the new Ocean Record the same diameter 0.910mm is rated at 120LBS.
Similarly, all sizes in Ocean Record are “1 rank higher” rated in breaking strain compared to the same diameter in standard nylon material.A unique, pale purple colour shade has been added to the leader, to enhance the appearance but it is still invisible in the water.
Each spool includes a unique velcro-closing spool band, complete with a hard plastic grommet, for free & controlled line supply.
These spool bands include a Varivas sewn-in label, colour-coded to easily identify the line size even when the spool is placed vertically.
