Traces / Leaders

Metmask AB offers 3 models of wire trace from 2 manufacturers and trace/leader material from TUF-Line.

Patriot Titanium Traces

Titanium traces

Patriot titanium traces are exceedingly strong and very durable. They do not go twist like some multi-strand traces.
The rigid single threaded design gives direct contact with the lure (especially jerkbaits) and reduces side-to-side motion on the cast to help avoid tangles with the lure hooks. Also available in 7-strand.

TUF-LeaderTUF-Leader is an advanced stainless steel leader designed for high abrasion conditions.

Engineered and designed specifically for “toothy fish”, TUF-Leader eliminates common issues associated with steel leader materials. TUF-Leader’s unique construction allows the leader to be knotted with standard knots rather than using traditional crimping techniques associated with stranded wire. Whether tying an Albright or Palomar knot, the knots cinch down cleanly and with little effort. TUF-Leader is the first braided tie-able stainless leader on the market.

Manufactured with a unique tri-component process, TUF-Leader incorporates T-304 extruded stainless steel around a Spectra fiber core to ensure the highest possible knot strength and durability. The 16-carrier braid construction ensures the smallest possible diameter coupled with a super smooth exterior feel.
