The new Gardner Ultra Skin is a super soft, supple and ‘skinned’ braided hooklink material.
It is available in two matt colours – green and brown - and in breaking strains of 15lb, 25lb and 35lb which are perfectly suited to a wide range of carp angling situations.
The colours have been carefully specified and tweaked by the team members at Gardner until they were 100 per cent satisfied. The matt finish really helps the hooklink blend in over most lakebed types and its soft feel will reduce the chances of spooking fish feeding over the spot.
The material is easy to strip and the unique polymer mix used in the outer coating means that it can be straightened out with just your fingers.
The 15lb strain has a very low diameter of only 0.50mm and is ideal if you’re looking for a hooklink that offers finesse without compromising reliability, while the 25lb version is more of an all-rounder.
The 35lb version can cope with the most arduous situations, despite only being a fraction thicker than the 25lb version. If you’re fishing for big carp on a big water, near snags or pads, it is up to the job.
