How heavy? Pick up a spool, feel the weight and the question is immediately answered; incredibly it weighs in over six times heavier than many of the lightweights currently on sale.
The all-important heart of the product has been specially selected. In order to achieve extreme density no less than a whopping SW20 grade lead inner has been used. The construction of Dyneema and High Tenacity Polyester woven around it really makes this product unique setting it apart from all others.
For the many who have previously suffered with the problem of lead popping out there is no such worry with Score Gold. Following repeated casting the tight weave of outer material ensures the inner core remains kink-free and stays firmly locked into place. When used as a conventional spliced leader over soft silty bottoms SG immediately sinks through the bottom debris disappearing from view. More importantly when pursuing wary line shy fish it places the rising mainline a considerable distance from the hook-bait improving presentation no end.
For the first time you have the luxury of using heavy indicators without spoiling presentation. Its immense weight allows you to tension the line without lifting half the leader off the bottom.
This much sought after product opens up many exciting new methods especially for cautious margin feeders. For the stalking angler who prefers free-lining SG has no equal.
It’s heavy enough to cast without a bomb making it extremely effective for presenting bait at close range. Due to its substantial weight it hugs the bottom like no tomorrow whilst resisting strong undertow in windy conditions.
Construction has been given the highest priority. Woven High Tenacity Polyester blended with pure Dyneema fibres ensure this durable leader stands up to constant recasting with little sign of wear. Colour is first-rate; the choice of Camou or Silt blends in with most backgrounds.
Those who have struggled to splice lead core in the past will welcome Score Gold with open arms. Even for the novice splicing is child’s-play due entirely to the large gauge of lead contained within. As soon as the inner core is removed it reveals a hollow sleeve so wide the needle simply slides through.
This seriously heavy product is suitable for all still water and river applications opening a whole new world in presentation. Brilliant for carp and barbel, a genuine advance and ‘the’ helicopter rig material to use.
