    Trout Hunter Tippet

    Has anyone tried the new Trout Hunter tippet yet? It rated as #1 in the Tippett Shoot-Out in the latest Fly Fisherman magazine.

    I love it and nobody carries it. I'm trying to get Shannon's to carry it. Got free samples last winter from a rep and now I can't find more when I need it except online. I plan to replace my Rio and Frog's Hair with it for trout

    I'm pretty sure I bought some at tightlines.

    It's great tippet.

    I don't know if it's better than rio but I like it.

    They don't have it, I stopped by there before my big trip last week. Wound up with more Rio which is fine, but the new Trout Hunter is hands down the best I've ever tried. Knots, to suppleness, to strength, it has it all.

    What do you guys use the fluorocarbon or the nylon?

    Re: Trout Hunter Tippet

    So it looks like Trout Hunter comes in half sizes; 4.5x, 5.5x, 6.5x. I've never heard of that before.

    Gimmick? Or could there be a reason for going with such a specific diameter?

    I only use floro in the salt or I have 6X floro for tiny nymphs that I use once in awhile. Otherwise I use mono. If you try this brand, I promise you'll like it. I had settled on Rio as my choice over others in the recent past until I tried Trout Hunter brand.

    It's legit stuff.

    Trout Hunter makes good stuff.

    Tippet, CDC, dubbing it's all good.

    OK, thanks. I just ordered some from their website in 5x and 6x. I'll give it a go. I agree about their cdc.

    I saw it yesterday in Baxter House in Roscoe as well. After I paid shipping fees to order it online of course.

    Re: Trout Hunter Tippet

    I always take Yellowstone Anglers (or any retailers) reviews with a grain of salt. Not exactly independant and neutral parties, no matter what they say. And man, what a bunch of sheeple you guys are! Trout Hunter better pay those dudes some royalties. How many times have you had your Rio, or any other high-end leader, legitimately fail on you? And not because you didn't tie a decent knot, but a legitimate failure?

    Roll up the windows Brian, you're letting the stank out.
