I like frog hair, and I like fluorocarbon tippet

Rating:
Pros:
Cons:

I have used Frog Hair tippets in all sizes for a number of years, both mono and fluorocarbon. The rated strength isn't the highest you'll see in the charts, but if you pull test it, the stretchiness of frog hair makes a big difference! Try it--when you pull test it, especially with a hard shock, it feels much harder to break than other brands at the same diameter.

Some people pass up fluorocarbon because of the cost, but consider this: it doesn't degrade with age. A 4-year-old spool of mono is weakened junk that should be thrown away, whereas FC retains its full strength until you use it up. The downside is that it doesn't degrade at all if you lose it in the river or on the riverbank, so try not to leave it behind!
