HydroTuff has been designed for the most demanding angling situations, where you need the toughest, most robust and utterly reliable line to put on your reels.
We have recently upgraded to a larger arbour spool and jazzed up the packaging! This was primarily to ensure that the best method of spooling up this line (please click on the Videos tab to watch – Loading Line The Right Way!) is now the same as the rest of Gardner Tackle main line range. Don’t worry, it’s still the same magnificent line as before! The most amazingly robust copolymer available…
No other high abrasion line offers the same superb performance for casting, it is fast sinking, offers great feel, exceptional knot strength and outstanding reliability. It is one of those lines that just gets better and better – and this translates into a really long life span on your reels.
In the higher diameters it is brutally strong and a favourite of river and canal carper anglers both here in the UK and on mainland Europe.
The 12lb (0.35mm) version has proven unsurpassed as a mainline capable of withstanding the repetitive shock of long range fishing on waters with a leader ban.
All our main lines are rated with a good margin in terms of the stated breaking strain, taking into account knot strength using a well tied grinner or Palomar. So realistically the 0.35mm breaks at around 18lb; the 0.38mm at 22lb and the 0.40mm version at 24lb!
Many other high abrasion lines have a opaque base that makes them stand out in the water, but Low-Viz Green HydroTuff’s unique copolymer mixture maintains the base transparency ensuring it is hard to spot even when fished tight (mid water).
HydroTuff has a really nice steely finish thanks to its controlled stretch. This ensures that it gives a crisp and ultra responsive feel when casting out, and helps feeling the lead down ‘on the drop’.
Available in 12lb, 15lb and 20lb in Low-Viz Green on 4oz spools.
*Limited stocks available of old style packaging of 10lb in Low-Viz Green and 12lb and 15lb in the superb Deep Brown.
