New for 2013
SuperCast is one of the newest products offered by the Tuf-Line company. As a user of their lines for a long time, the company has continued to address possible improvements to their products. I have a new “favorite line.” A longtime fan of the Tuf-Line products, the Supercast does not disappoint.
My personal preference in line prior to the introduction of the SuperCast was the Tuf-Line XP. The achievement with the introduction of the Supercast line- the qualities of the XP have been combined with a slicker, longer casting line with basically zero problems. The line has a feel that is soft, very much like monofilament. The coating on the line also prevents premature fading.
In action, the line has little to no problems, with any “knotty problems” resolved with very little effort. It spools up easily and stays neatly on the spool, even when using the lightest lures for long periods of time. SuperCast and tying line to leader knots: No difficulty at all. On durability: The spools that I filled with this line are all still in use, without any line loss or splicing. The condition of the line is excellent, with very good abrasion resistance and no signs of fading.
This line is a great choice for everyone using braided lines but particularly for the beginners to using braided lines. Occasional tangles are inevitable but with SuperCast, more a factor of human error than anything to do with the product. Smooth casting anglers will not have problems with this line.
I would not hesitate to use the XP again but the introduction of SuperCast probably bumps the XP out as my first choice in a braided line. Tuf-Line has a real winner in their SuperCast braided line.
Supercast, as the name implies this is the longest-casting and easiest handling superline we have ever developed. Utilizing a revolutionary post process coating that adds lubricity, SuperCast will change the way you think about braided line. The coating allows the line to have superior castability and distance compared to monofilament, fluorocarbon, or standard braided lines. The added lubricity allows knots to cinch down tighter for higher strength and security.
Traditionally braided lines create a noisy telltale sound as the line moves through the rod guides. In situations where your line is over a log or timber the sound that braided lines generate can spook nearby fish. SuperCast with its smooth outer coating quietly glides through the rod guides allowing for longer distance and effortless casting. So now when you find yourself with your line over wood or when you are trying to punch through thick weeds and vegetation SuperCast will give you that stealthy approach.
SuperCast eliminates common issues associated with spinning reels when using braided lines: poor bail performance, tip wraps, and wind knots so if you have been hesitant to try braided lines on your spinning reels SuperCast is the perfect choice. For casting reel applications the ultra-round construction of SuperCast virtually eliminates the lines ability to dig into itself and will give you trouble free handling all day long. So whether you are using a casting or spinning reel you will find this to be the quietest and easiest to manage superline ever designed.
Manufactured with a unique bi-component process SuperCast incorporates an exclusive inside out coating process that ensures a perfectly round, smooth, and highly abrasion resistant superline that does not break down or lose its rigidity with prolonged use. The coating process of SuperCast ensures permanent coloration of the line so the color won’t fade, flake, or bleed.
SuperCast delivers a significant advancement in superlines by producing a line that has the smoothness and handling of monofilament and the toughness of braid.
Designed for both fresh and saltwater use and is proudly made in the USA, SuperCast is available in 6, 8, 10, 12, 15, 20, 25, and 30 pound tests in 100, 125, 300 and 2500 yard lengths in both green and hi-vis yellow.
