Available  in either 50m spools or 100m, with a variety of different breaking strains, Stroft ABR (Abrasion Resistance) is particularly resistant to UV rays, scratches and water absorbtion (enhancing wet knot strength).

Stroft ABR is our leader material of choice for Reservoir Dry Fly fishing, River Nymphing for both Trout and Grayling and almost all our Salmon Fishing - and we're not alone, some of the leading river anglers in the country use nothing else (as do some of the most regular and successful visitors to the northern rivers of the Kola Peninsula - that's why we stock the heavy stuff!)

Here's some information from the exhaustive and highly regarded Yellowstone Angler 'Tippet Shootout' testing (they tested GTM whilst we prefer ABR - the performance is the same)
