Seaguar

Seaguar fluorocarbons - Riverge, Grand Max, Ace Hard, Soft Plus and Reel-Soft have achieved a solid reputation for performance and reliability since their introduction. Riverge, our original introduction, rapidly became the favourite with many game anglers. It outperformed then, and still does, other brands of fluorocarbons due to the over 25 years of research by Kureha Chemicals. In 1997 Riverge won an EMAP award for Best Accessory. Since then Grand Max was launched, followed by Ace Hard, Reel–Soft and now Grand Max Soft-Plus all especially formulated to give different characteristics.

All our fluorocarbons have the following in common:

  • their refractive index is nearly the same as water making them nearly invisible in water
  • their breaking strains compared to diameter are exceptionally strong
  • they knot well
  • they have a high resistance to fatigue

Fordham & Wakefield are sole distributors for Riverge, Grand Max, Soft Plus, Reel-Soft and Ace Hard brands. These famous fluorocarbon lines, leaders and tippets are supplied by Fordham & Wakefield and manufactured by Kureha Chemicals of Japan, the inventors of fluorocarbon fishing lines 30 years ago. They are the best available and are the first choice for many in salmon fishing and trout fishing.

All our fluorocarbons are solid fluorocarbon. "The fish can't see it".

Our fluorocarbon filaments are thinner for a given breaking strain than any other flourocarbon lines available and are in many cases twice the breaking strain for an equal diameter, which combined with the fact that their refractive index is very close to that of water, makes them practically invisible in water. They sink readily without treatment at about 3 times the speed of nylon. The abrasion resistance and invisibility of our fluorocarbons ensures that fish are neither "spooked" nor lost.

GRAND MAX SOFT-PLUS is new from Kureha of Japan; the new fluorocarbon is softer than GRAND MAX and also amazingly 10% stronger. GRAND MAX SOFT-PLUS has been tested both for trout and coarse fishing and has been proved to be 100% reliable. The material has also been used as a reel line and is soft enough for this purpose. Knot strength is reliable and stretch is controlled.

WE RECOMMEND THAT ANGLERS SHOULD WORK BY DIAMATERS AND USE THE STRENGTH OF OUR FLUOROCARBONS TO THEIR ADVANTAGE.
