Scientific Anglers Nylon Fly Fishing Tippet
SKU 200-5-956-SAnylonTippet-P

Scientific Anglers Nylon Freshwater Tippet. Take this as a mea culpa. For years, SA's leader and tippet materials were marketed and advertised as being something they weren’t. The diameters, breaking strengths, and performances just weren’t accurate—or up to par with their own rigorous standards. They needed to fix that. Over the past two years, they’ve meticulously researched, tested, and developed what they believe are the best leaders and tippets ever produced. The new nylon and fluorocarbon materials are, simply put, the strongest and most reliable SA has ever created, with the highest knot strength of anything tested. Period. These breaking strengths and diameters have been put to the test more times than a lab rat, and are finally in line with SA's exacting demands. The bottom line is this: You can fish the other stuff, or you can FISH THE TRUTH.

    End of messy tippet spools

    Posted by AvidMax Customer on Sep 4th 2018

    Scientific Anglers tippet spool puts and end to messy tippet spools where the tippet unwinds and messes up your gear bag or vest pocket.

    The tippet is held fast with an elastic band and there is a hole in the band for the tippet to pass through. The built in cutter makes for a short, clean cut every time. The tippet held up extremely well for my fishing trips on trout water to Montana and Central Pennsylvania.

    Ain't bad!

    Posted by Doug Miller on Aug 31st 2018

    OK, there are lots of brands of tippet out there and even more folks who see tippet. However, I discovered AvidMax while searching for SA tippet. What a find! There prices are very competitive and their service is EXCELLENT! They shipped my tippet very quickly. I am thrilled to find them! BTW, the tippet ain't bad, either.

    S.A. Fresh Water Tippet - Fly Fishing

    Posted by AvidMax Customer on Jul 10th 2017

    I tend to like using Scientific Anglers tippets because they've never let me down, they're nostalgic being around forever and the parent company is Orvis; which only means cross product marketing.

    I love the built in cutter and the "snap" centers that align with other Scientific Anglers tippets(maybe even Orvis tippets too?) making the convenience a way too easy adjective.

    The Nylon is perfect for whatever application you're using it for. I use it for small wild trout, panfish and occasional smallmouth bass.

    For the price point and quality this is the only choice in my opinion.
