The Drennan X Tough shot resistant hook length Line comes under the beady eye of Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard. He's the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week.


SUPPLE and clear-coloured, yet tough enough to have shot slid along it, the Drennan X Tough shot resistant hook length line looks as if it will improve presentation in situations where shot needs to be close to the hook, such as commercial bagging for F1s.

Supplied on handy 50-metre spools, in 12 diameters from 0.08-0.24 mm (1 lb 4 oz-10 lb),

this line is rated for knot strength, to give a reliable performance guide.

The extra abrasion resistance will be useful for feeder fishing, where the trace needs to stand up to potential chafing. The heavier strains will prove handy for hook-and-hold fishing in snaggy swims on commercials and natural venues.

Price: £2.95.
