Tackle junkie Des Westmore runs his eye over two new low-vis line products from the Snowbee stable.
A couple of interesting new lines from Snowbee could be set to cause a stir. Snowbee Magic line is a clear, incredibly limp monofilament that they claim remains very strong and abrasion resistant even after sustained use. Though not the cheapest mono around, this new product is very hard to fault. It provides superb bait presentation from a rig building perspective, while also serving as an excellent mainline for spinning or float fishing. Bass anglers should take note of Magic Line.
When non-intrusive stealth is more important than suppleness, there is Snowbee Fluoro-Tec fluorocarbon. This is an excellent Fluorocarbon that can be treated very much like mono in use. Again, it doesn’t come cheap but quality seldom does. Fluro-Tec knots extremely well, where lesser, more wiry fluorocarbons tend to be poor. I will be frugal with it at that price – probably only using it when I need the edge such as bass fishing with cut baits in the summer and float-fishing live-baits.
Snowbee Magic Line: 100m of 15lb, 20lb or 25lb Magic Line mono costs £6.00.
Fluoro-Tec: 50m of 15lb, 20lb and 25lb comes in at £14.00, £16.00 and £18.00 respectively. For more detailed information visit www.snowbee.co.uk
