It’s been a couple orbits of the sun since Knot2Kinky forever changed the definition of premium leader material. The knottable, kink and bite resistant, corrosion-free, and stretchable super titanium wire has become the only leader line in the tackle boxes of many freshwater and saltwater anglers.
Convention has come calling, though, but not at the sacrifice of Knot2Kinky’s core characteristics. Welcome Knot2Kinky Leaders to Aquateko’s surging stockpile of innovative terminal tackle, joining ranks with the multitude of products in the InvisaSwivel lineup.
Steel leaders are to predator fishing what bobbers are to bluegills. To nullify fangs, canines and incisors, it’s mandatory to use a slash-proof leader. And to accommodate a wide range of fishing applications, one needs a full complement of weights and lengths.
Knot2Kinky Leaders come in strengths from 15- to 100-lb. Might only take 15-lbs of bite-back to tame a northern pike or bluefish. Move up the weight chart for muskies, mackerel and kingfish. And if you dare dabble in sharks or barracudas, better shoot right for the 100-lber.
Choosing a leader length is both an exercise in personal preference and specific application. The deeper you expect a fish to take the bait – precariously running its teeth up the line – the longer you need to go. Big fish with big baits call for 18-inch Knot2Kinky Leaders. Shorter nippers are better tackled with 6-inchers. Shorter leaders can also make better for casting, as the swivel doesn’t get choked in the top guide of your fishing rod.
Component-wise, all Knot2Kinky Leaders incorporate a heavy-duty, dual rotation ball-bearing swivel. The snap is similarly special. A trusted, size-matched Stay-Lok™ snap is standard issue on every size and length of Knot2Kinky Leader.
Alas, the leader in terminal tackle has leaders…
