Arrow INTRODUCING: Blue Action Tackle FLUOROCARBON

I am pleased to now offer for sale Blue Action Tackle Fluorocarbon




Before offering this line, I was determined to get real world data. It was important that I reach out to several great fisherman in the Gulf and along the East Coast that I’ve had the privilege to know over the last several years and put the line to the test. This was done both on the water and on the shop test table. I was also determined that the quality could be matched by reasonable prices.

To that end, I have included below a testimonial as well as the actual data from testing. This particular information was obtained from a fisherman and person I have great respect for from both a fishing and personal integrity standpoint. He and his team have years of recreational and commercial fishing experience and are obsessive about their efforts.

As a commercial and tournament fishing team in the Northern Gulf of Mexico, quality terminal tackle is imperative to our success. For the last several years Blue Action Tackle has been our sole source for wind-on leaders, deep drop rigs, swivels, and hooks. This tackle repeatedly stands up to the test of the big Grouper, Snapper, and Amberjack that we target each trip. I recently had the pleasure of testing Blue Action’s new private label fluorocarbon during a deep water commercial trip. We put this leader material through the ringer and believe it was instrumental in helping us land multiple large Gag and Warsaw Grouper. This fluorocarbon’s strength and abrasion resistance was impressive, and we are thankful to have found a product that exceeds our high standards.

.................................................. .................................................. ..................................................

Specs:
  • 100% Japanese Fluorocarbon
  • High refractive index to reduce visibility in water
  • Retains 100% strength when wet
  • High abrasion resistance
  • UV resistant
Diameters:
  • · 50lb -- .026
  • · 60lb -- .032”
  • · 80lb -- .035”
  • · 100lb -- .040”
  • · 130lb -- .042”
  • · 150lb -- .047”
  • · 200lb -- .061”

Testing of 60lb through 200lb test:

Testing Device:: 8’ board with post on one end and small trailer winch on the other end. The trailer winch was attached to a 660lb crane scale using 400lb mono.

Testing Procedure:
  • · For each class of line, 5 tests were performed using 36” of material:
  • · Pure Breaking Strength- No knots or crimps. Line wrapped around block on each end.
  • · Crimp (larger lines only)- 100lb, 130lb and 150lb line was crimped.
  • · Uni Knot- Standard 3 turn Uni was used.
  • · In order to provide a margin of error, the highest and lowest breaking strength of each test was eliminated from the “Average” calculation.
Pure Break Results:
  • 60lb -- 58.67lbs
  • 80lb -- 81.33lbs
  • 100lb -- 95.33lbs
  • 130lb -- 129.67lbs (crimped)
  • 150lb -- 152.33lbs (crimped)
  • 200lb -- 211.00lbs (crimped)
I’m currently offering the above lb tests ranging in price from $12.50 to $95.00. Spools are offered in 33yd and 110yds. New lb tests and lengths will most certainly be added in the future.

PLEASE NOTE (since we can no longer edit posts): Please check the website as prices in the future may be updated. As always, please pm and/or email with any questions.

All I can say is that I, as well as my buddies have been using Doug’s products for past few seasons, and all I can say is they are far better than the rest as far as quality and price.
Plus he will spend as much time as you need, as far as answering any questions and concerns that you may have.
I like the fact he is willing to entertain requests for custom gear that is not listed on his website.
I just had to give credit where its due.
Doug is a great solid dude and fellow fisherman.

Also got some 130 and 150. Great quality and price. Whatever Doug is involved in you can rest assured it's a quality product.
His knowledge and willingness to answer questions via phone or email is the new industry standard.
