This titanium leader line comes in 10 feet lengths, with test strength of 30, 50 and 75 pounds (13.6, 22.6 and 34kg).

Line is very elastic - it can stretch up to 10% in length before breaking, without any damage to the line itself - great feature for setting hooks without breaking the lines. However, if you combine this leader with braided main line, don't set the reel drag too high - titanium is elastic and in combination with good rod can absorb strong fish strikes, but ...

This line is knottable - use knots just as with ordinary monofilament lines. However, several knots are recommended: Standard clinch knot, Figure eight knot, Perfection loop, Surgeon's knot, Albright knot (to monofilament lines, for example), Loop to loop, Snell to hooks etc.

Don't expect titanium line knots to be 'pretty' like nylon knots can be, but they will hold. 7 strand line is very flexible, but when tying knots, don't tighten too much - when you feel that line is stretching, don't pull any more!

Also, being made out of titanium alloy, these lines are very corrosion and kink resistant. Also, their surface is very hard and resistant to abrasion and to sharp objects, including sharp fish teeth and strong jaws.

Fishing leader has black, non-reflective finish - it is not invisible in water like fluorocarbon lines, but not far from it!
