MINNETONKA, Minn. — For a mono, new Sufix® Advance™ Monofilament hits a triple — it’s supple, sensitive and strong. It’s the monofilament line anglers have always sought but never found. Until now.
“Sufix Advance is easy to handle and fishes smooth — like mono always has — but it shares some of the qualities of fluorocarbon too, like enhanced sensitivity and abrasion resistance,” says Al Lindner, legendary co-founder of In-Fisherman and host of the influential “Angling Edge” and “Fishing Edge” TV shows.
After revolutionizing braided line with 832® Advanced Superline®, Sufix turned its attention to monofilament, creating a durable, low-stretch, abrasion-resistant line that makes no sacrifices that limit performance.
“It lays on the reel phenomenally and the handling is amazing,” Lindner says.
There’s some serious science at work making it a breeze to boat fish with Sufix Advance mono, which combines HMPE molecules with Hyper Copolymer. HMPE molecules are the material braided superlines are made from. Sufix engineered a proprietary magnetic-extrusion process to draw HMPE molecules toward the surface of the line and bond with the Hyper Copolymer. The result of all that engineering is superior, long-lasting abrasion resistance that doesn’t make the line stiff and unmanageable.
While Sufix Advance is well-suited for targeting multiple species in many situations, Lindner favors the new mono most when targeting shallow walleyes. “In the walleye world, so many guides and professional anglers I know have swung, full-tilt, back to monofilament, especially in shallow water,” Lindner says. “So, they’re really going to get excited about this new Sufix Advance.”
No matter the species you target, however, if your preferred angling method relies on spinning gear, you can count on Sufix Advance to put more fish in the boat or creel. “On spinning gear, fluorocarbon can come off the reel like a slinky,” Lindner says. “Advance mono has abrasion-resistance like fluoro, but comes off the reel smooth. And, that abrasion-resistance helps a lot with all the zebra mussels in a lot of the lakes we’re fishing.”
Additional features of Sufix Advance include enhanced castability, reduced line memory, unrivaled knot strength and 50 percent lower stretch and UV absorption than standard monofilament. It’s available in two colors, clear and low-vis green, and nine strengths: 4-, 6-, 8-, 10-, 12-, 14-, 17-, 20- and 25-pound test.
