Aquanix® Fluorocarbon Fly Tippet (33yd)
As a 100% fluorocarbon fly tippet material, Aquanix carries similar base physical properties with others in density, clarity but drastically improved in sensitivity, abrasion resistance and suppleness. Aquanix has 3 different quality grades of LT, XT, ST. Even the entry grade ST has about the same or better quality than market’s premium fluorocarbon tippets while LT and XT outperform any fluorocarbon tippets currently existing in the market.
- Highest grade fluorocarbon polymerized, spun and packaged at our own factory by ourselves
- Extremely supple and flexible than any other fluorocarbon tippets in the market
- Ultra sensitivity with much less stretch than any other fluorocarbon or mono tippets
- Very little memory - Kink or coiling almost straightens out at moderate stretch applied (No pinch/scrape with fingers)
- Abrasion resistance 20~30% better than other fluorocarbon tippets
- 3 quality grades available - LT, XT and ST (LT is the highest grade with the best strength, abrasion resistance, sensitivity and suppleness)
- Higher strength 16/18/20/25lb available for saltwater fly (LT only)
Hitena Tippet Materials
It’s all about Strength, Sensitivity, Abrasion resistance and Suppleness – by its performance, not by brand name
Hitena has 4 different fly tippets by its material and action in water - Supernix, Nynix, Paranix and Aquanix. Supernix and Paranix are new material multi-polymer tippets while Nynix and Aquanix are counterparts of conventional mono and fluorocarbon tippets respectively.
* Higher grade in the same product has better abrasion resistance, suppleness, sensitivity
Supernix (New Material Multi-polymer – Nylon base)
- Even lighter and floats better than mono. Virtually floating on moving water - Recommended for dry fly
- Simply the strongest tippet available in the market
- Super supple and extremely low memory – coiling out of spool straightens easily at moderate tension applied
- No UV degradation or excessive water absorption like mono tippets
- An innovation in tippet material – While fly fishers have looked for clear tippet materials, the truth is ‘no fish lives in 100% clear water’. To minimize spooking fish, tippet itself was camouflaged by reproducing real water condition in it
- Pigments were spot fused in the tippet to have it look natural stream water containing algae, clay and particles while keeping its original strength
- Available in 2 colors - Smoke and Olive so fly fishers can choose better performing one depending on their surroundings (Olive for summer green stream or Smoke for winter rocky spot, for example)
Nynix (Nylon Co-polymer)
- Premium Nylon copolymer tippet with super suppleness and strength
- Abrasion resistance even better than some of the fluorocarbon tippets in the market
- Size available down to 14X (2/1000’ diameter) which is the world thinnest tippet material
Paranix (New Material Multi-polymer – PBT base)
- Absolutely no memory – Any kink or coiling perfectly straightens out at slight tension applied (no pinch/scrape with fingers). No curving out of knot or hook – Keeps its straight profile from the leader to hook
- Medium density in the middle of mono and fluorocarbon makes it all-rounder with slow sinking. When used for dry flies, reduces tippet shade by slightly sinking in water
- Far clearer than fluorocarbon – Compare Paranix with fluorocarbon tippets and see yourself how clearer Paranix is. Works extremely well for wary fishes in clear water
- Lowest stretching tippet available in the market - Extreme sensitivity for better hookset
- Abrasion resistance at least 5 times better than fluorocarbon
- Knot strength is abt 10% better than fluorocarbon, which makes it even stronger in real fishing
- No UV degradation or excessive water absorption
- XT is specially made for the ultimate sensitivity with the lowest stretch among 3 variations but stiffest
- Made with the highest grade fluorocarbon
- LT is the lowest stretching fluorocarbon tippet available in the market for extreme sensitivity
- Exceptionally supple, super low memory and better abrasion resistance - ultimate performance in another level
- Higher strength (16/18/20/25lb) also available for saltwater
Unlike others who bring OEM products after rebranding, 100% of Hitena tippet materials are polymerized, spun and packaged at our own factory by ourselves.
