Aquanix® 100% Fluorocarbon Fly Tippet (33yd)
Strength, Sensitivity, Abrasion resistance and Suppleness
Hitena’s Fluorocarbon fly tippet, Aquanix pioneered new horizon in fly fishing that nobody else was able to achieve in tippet material. As a 100% Fluorocarbon, Aquanix carries similar base physical properties with others in density, clarity but drastically improved in strength, sensitivity, abrasion resistance and suppleness.
Aquanix has 3 different quality grades of LT, XT, ST. Even the budget grade ST has about the same or better quality level than market’s premium fluorocarbon tippets of $15 price point while LT and XT outperform any fluorocarbon tippet currently existing in the market by a big margin. Hitena's polymerization/spinning technology brought Aquanix to the next level of unprecedented performance and we are yet to find any others coming even close in quality. Both lab test result and field test more than a year prove it.

XT (HA42208) : No other tippets, even the highest priced in the market, come close to this quality level. Moderate stretch
ST (HA42108) : Market's premium grade fluorocarbon tippets position here but ST is still far better in abrasion resistance
