Made from advanced copolymer to create a strong and supple leader, each tapered leader is continuous and knotless, tapering from a mainline diameter to a thicker shockleader diameter, this taper enables the angler to tie neat, tight and compact knots when attaching a shockleader to their mainline. These compact knots lend themselves to anglers who fish with fixed spool and multiplier reels, when using a level wind. The smaller knots are ideal for fishing with continental style, surfcasting rods, many of which use smaller tip eyes than standard beachcasters. The smooth line flow created by smaller knots and a tapered leader can also help increase casting efficiency. When shortened, our Xenon Tapered Shockleaders can be used by boat anglers who prefer smaller, tapered knots when fishing with braid to a mono leader. Available in clear for anglers fishing in shallow or clear water and in daylight and in orange for night time fishing and when the angler wants a visual reference of when the leader is close to shore.
