Maxima Ultragreen is the original green monofilament! A bit old fashioned...and cheap....but still a favorite of many.
Though often attempted, no other manufacturer has duplicated the exclusive color and characteristics of Ultragreen. This is a great all-around leader material for freshwater leaders. It is fairly soft and limp, yet retains Maxima's legendary tough, high durability finish for superior abrasion resistance. In addition, Ultragreen is virtually invisible under water, particularly in fresh water, a feature that makes this line an ideal choice for leader material.
We use Maxima Ultragreen for building basic leaders...but works especially well for butt sections on dry fly and nymph leaders. For streamer, bass and saltwater we do prefer the more stiffer Maxima Clear. This is also a traditional favorite of Salmon and Steelhead anglers. It is the material of choice for the legendary "Chuck-n-Duck" rigs often fished in Michigan.
