Orvis Super Strong Plus is a perfectly balanced blend of knot strength, elasticity and suppleness. This material offers the highest knotted strength of any nylon leader material on the market.
Super Strong Plus is completely new, and manufactured by a different company, to Orvis specs, than where the old Super Strong was made. Super Strong Plus is true to the X size standards. If you buy 5X, you are not buying a material that has a larger diameter.
Super Strong, the leader material we have used for decades has changed in many ways. One is knot strength. The knot strength is higher in the new Super Strong Plus.
The Chart below depicts the results from testing the knot strength of both materials, tied with an improved clinch knot, then soaked in water overnight. In all cases, Super Strong Plus knot is stronger than the older Super Strong.
If you fish with nylon leaders and fluorocarbon tippet, like many anglers do today, you will find Super Strong Plus works well when tied to fluorocarbon. These knots should be tied carefully, wetted, and drawn tight quickly. Always test the knot before fishing, as you would with any knot.
Super Strong Plus tapered leaders come in a 2-Pack and sell for $7.95.
