Packs a wallop with strength,
casts like a bullet

There’s something about a top-water bite that raises the sensory levels to new heights. Splash. Pause. Splash. Pause. And bam! An explosive hit that’s a visual rush and adrenalin kicker for any angler. “I’ve always got a couple of rods set up with monofilament,” says Elite Series Pro Chris Zaldain. “There are certain presentations like top water, where I prefer the performance of monofilament altogether.”


Zaldain was one of several Seaguar pro-staffers who have been testing Seaguar’s new Rippin’ monofilament fishing line. “I absolutely torture-tested the 20 lb. in Florida during practice. This line is amazingly strong, thin and limp. Tossed it around barnacle-lined dock pilings and swung 3 to 4 pounders in the boat every day. On the third day of practice, I purposely didn't re-tie all day and caught 30+ fish from 3 to 6 lbs. from under docks. Zero failure. Love this stuff!!!”


Seaguar’s new Rippin’ Monofilament is a thin-diameter, premium monofilament that packs a wallop with exceptional knot and tensile strength; yet, it’s soft and supple with very low memory to cast like a bullet. Low stretch properties enable surer hook-sets and this line’s UV protection extends its high-performance qualities.


Available in 4 to 20 lb test in 200 yd spools, Rippin’ also features Level Wind Technology, a Seaguar exclusive. This process spools the line by laying it down side by side, never crossing itself. The final spool is as smooth as a spool of thread, with no cross contact marks, for maximum line strength without any line overstress or twist. Rippin’ ships to retail stores in the fall of 2016.
