There are loads of these lead-free leaders around these days, including some good and some not so good ones.
Fishing a lake that’s infested with weed, I fancied trying this one out because I felt that it would sink a little less quickly than leadcore, settling on to the weed more, and obviously the colour would blend in.
On the subject of colour, and this is not unique to this material, why are all green leaders and hook links so dark? Pull most types of fresh weed out of a lake and it’s a much more vibrant green and, unless it’s old, is rarely as dark as this.
Maybe it’s one of those angler perception things, but I’d much rather the material matched the weed and not just conformed to trends.
Anyway, in use I was very impressed with the CamFlex. It’s extremely easy to splice, despite having a flatter profile than leadcore, and it settles nicely over any bottom debris, weed and suchlike.
When using a chod rig, it does need a lot more balancing of the rig because it is nowhere near as heavy as leadcore, but again this is the case with all of these lead-free materials.
Overall, though, I’m happy to keep using this, and that’s the best indictment I can give of any product. (MC)
