Project Description

Black Magic pink leader

We get a heap of great feedback about our leader from anglers all around the world.  It’s certainly well tested and we have a “no compromises” approach when it comes to getting performance under pressure.  From 4lb up to 560lb, and with options in both copolymer and fluorocarbon, we‘ve got most fishing applications covered.

Now, we’re excited to announce our latest additions – two new types of pink copolymer leader.   Why pink you ask?  Well, it’s a case of “now you see me, now you don’t”.    Pink is considered to be one of the first colours on the spectrum to “disappear”, particularly if there is less water clarity, or if you’re fishing at greater depths.  Low visibility leader is important, especially if the fish are a bit tentative or spooking easily.

Being copolymer, they have different characteristics to the pink fluorocarbon which offers anglers a wider range of options when choosing a pink leader, and at a more affordable price.

Pink Shock Leader

Pink Shock leader from Black Magic

The first of the new products is our Pink Shock leader.  This will be very popular amongst the saltwater fraternity – from the boat to the beach, or off the rocks.  It has all the features you’d expect from our Tough Trace in terms of performance, but it’s slightly suppler in feel, offering high shock absorption, great knot tying and natural bait presentation.  Pink Shock leader is available in five breaking strains from 20lb to 100lb.

Deception Ultra Pink Leader

Ultra Pink Deception light leader from Black Magic

The second product is Deception Ultra Pink.  It’s available in five breaking strains from 4lb to 12lb and suits both freshwater and saltwater applications, basically anywhere a low diameter and lightweight leader is required.  Like the Pink Shock leader, the Deception has great shock absorption as well as high knot strength and low visibility in certain conditions.

This stunning 20lb plus Tekapo brown was caught & released by Chris Firkin while trialling the NEW Deception Pink 8lb leader on a full moon in clear conditions.  He says. “The true suppleness of the new Pink Deception allows better presentation when drifting eggs, plus more stretch for shock absorption.”
