Surflon 1x7 is a great all-around leader wire for toothy fish. This wire is our Surfstrand 1x7 stainless steel with a smooth coating of nylon. A specially selected grade of nylon, tough yet flexible, is used to seal out water, reduce visibility, and improve the life of the line. Compared to old style 1x3 construction, Surflon’s 1x7 construction offers higher break strength and more realistic action. Surflon 1x7 is an effective leader wire for hard-charging, toothy fish such as Bluefish, Muskie and Mackerel.
Perhaps the best leader wire available! Surflon Micro Supreme is miniature 49 strand stainless steel wire that is extremely flexible and kink resistant. This wire is ideal for many types of sport fishing because it can be knotted to your bait and line like monofilament, it provides greater flexibility and less stretch than monofilament, and is generally smaller diameter per pound test, and therefore, less visible in the water. Surflon Micro Supreme is extra limp and has virtually no memory or stretch. The wire enhances the action of live and artificial baits and adds a level of realism never before attainable using wire or other leader materials such as monofilament and fluorocarbon. This wire is ideal for presenting life-like bait at any depth and can fool tackle-shy Billfish while withstanding the violent razor-sharp strikes of King Mackerel and Shark. Excellent for casting flies and tempting the most discriminating toothy fish to the surface. No other wire offers more realistic action both above and below the water. Low elasticity and high sensitivity allow you to set hooks faster and with more accuracy. Attach using common monofilament knots such as the Albright Knot, Clinch Knot, Nail Knot, Perfection Loop, Surgeon’s Loop, or Uni-Knot.

Sleeves are made of Copper or Brass and are available Nickel plated and Black oxidized. Sleeves can be fitted to wire, monofilament, and other various lines. When matching sleeves to wire, use single-barrel sleeves with an inside diameter of more than twice the wire diameter you are crimping. Burr-free nonabrasive finish combined with high strength and corrosion resistance makes AFW’s sleeves the preferred choice of professional leader, lure, and tackle manufacturers.
