Sunline have both sinking and floating braids, although the floating ones don't really "float", its more like they just don't sink much or don't sink fast, but they do have a pink sinking braid on the market.

Dunno if ya have sunline braid over there in the USA ???

I don't recall seeing Sunline here in the US market, but I do believe that Cortland has floating and sinking lines here in the US.

I'm using floating braided leaders for fly fishing bead headed nymphs, it works like a strike indicator and helps the nymph go slowly to the bottom.

 

Forgot to say, I use floatant gel on floating braided leader, as it doesn't float 100% as it says.

View PostIf you guys can, try to find out if sunline products are available in the States, they have very high quality braids, mono and fluorocarbon lines, all made in Japan.

 

I'll see if I can find any US distributors. Thank you for mentioning that brand.icon14.gif

most of the japanese top of the lines are not here in the US.

 

It gets through many troubles to get the best braid lines, like YGK Ultra castman. I use 47 lb castman for surf.
