    Maxima Ultra Green is more supple, and is softer than either Chameleon or Clear. It is nearly invisible in most glacial river and lake water. It has good knot strength and is very popular for fishing nymphs or dry flies for trout.
    Maxima Ultra Green is popular with steelhead/salmon anglers throughout the range of all the species
    Importantly, Maxima Green in #30 bends about the same as a Scandi line tip. So the energy of the cast is transmitted smoothly from the line through a hand tied leader to the fly. Check out the printable leader formula chart.

    Maxima and Knots
    All three types of Maxima Leader Materials have the ability to hold good knots. That is because Maxima has the ability to stay round in cross-section after being tied. The less a leader material deflects when tied in a knot, the more likely it is to stay strong. With Maxima, it is imperative that you wet the knots you are tying before you tighten them. Maxima ties very good blood knots when building tapered leaders if each knot is wetted with saliva.

    the best for leaders

    <p>i work as a guide in new zealand and make my own tapered leaders for my clients. i only use is tough, reliable and has great knot strength with any knot i uses. it turns over bushy dries as well as tungsten nymphs. I also make and sell furled leaders out of it. i can use any choice of tippet, hard or soft, and still get the results i want. I make sure i have plenty of spools in a wide range of strains.</p>
