Orvis Mirage Fluorocarbon Leaders
Orvis Mirage Fluorocarbon Leaders- Some fluorocarbon leaders are blended with nylon which lessens the benefits of abrasion resistance and low visibility. Orvis Fluorocarbon Mirage™ is as pure as it gets and has the highest abrasion resistance of any leader or tippet. Its refractive index is so close to that of water that Mirage is virtually invisible. With a specific gravity of 1.76, it breaks surface tension quickly and sinks quicker than nylon, perfect for nymphing and streamer fishing. Fluorocarbon materials retain their knot and tensile strength in water.
