CharkBait Custom Wind-On Leaders

Before getting into just how wonderful our custom wind-ons are, or offering pre-made wind-ons from other suppliers, let me first say that these are things you can indeed make yourself. It does take a bit of time, there is a learning curve, but it's something you can do yourself. Further, it's darn fun making your own wind-ons. We offer all the products you'll need and we try to de-mystify the process with several poorly made instructional videos which are posted on our YouTube Channel (CharkBait USA) done by myself or one of the other guys working here. Making your own wind-ons will require a bit of time and experimentation. There's no single way to make 'em and we try to show a few methods. As well you can give us a call and speak to Blake or myself (Mark) and we'll help get you up to speed. Having said this, if you prefer commercially or custom made wind-ons we can certainly assist...and I'll offer our custom made wind-ons are state of the art with a couple tricks we've learned along the way which are not part of the videos we present (simply because it's not our job to provide other retailers all of our proprietary tricks).

Key points, some inexperienced anglers may forget, wind-ons are not made for repeated use on BIG tuna. Just like any leader, one big fish and you'll have some stretch with the leader material whether that's mono or Fluorocarbon. With stretch, line test decreases and given some elongation the overall strength of a leader weakens. So, it's best to change out your wind-ons just as you would your leader. One big 200 lb plus fish and it's time to change out the leader. They are not made to fish an entire season with multiple catches. Wind-ons are no different than your topshot, change them after a big fish. Secondly, custom wind-ons are made to order. Do not order 10 of 'em expecting to return what's not used. It does not work that way. Just like hooks, reels, custom rods or iron, we're not supplying loaners and we're not selling returned gear to other clients. Know what you want to buy, plan on fishing it in the present or future. The quality is guaranteed, but sales are final on custom products.

We've been working with Spectra/Super Braid for a long time, catering to our long range fishing clientele. Hollow rigging, we've done our share, and we've also done our part in helping folks learn the craft with several videos posted on our YouTube channel, as well. Over the years folks have asked us to make wind-ons for them, and we've done so but never posted that as an option available from our on-line storefront. That's changed, we're now offering custom wind-on leaders to our clients. Frankly, we were at the forefront of introducing anglers to the benefits of the new Super Braided lines going back to the beginning of our business in 1997, and we've worked with braid longer than any other retailer and in greater volume.

The nice thing about growing over the years is that we have built a solid staff of professionals, guys and gals that have some excellent skills and love to fish. With that growth, we have in-house expertise in making custom leaders for the most demanding fishing situations in the world. And, you have more options in terms of the materials used for your wind-on leaders, with selections in Fluorocarbon: Seaguar Premier, Seaguar Blue Label, Momoi, Yo-Zuri, and Hi Seas Quatro. Wind-on lengths are a standard 25 feet with fluorocarbon or monofilament lines. We can also custom make other lengths of mono or fluorocarbon, but please note the delivery time may be a bit higher.

Uniquely, we offer wind-ons all the way down to 20# or lower test if required. After extensive testing we offer a few more options than most folks who make leaders, and you may wish to contact us regarding our techniques.  We begin with 12-14 feet of hollow core Super Braid, create a loop and make use of two layers (Dual Wall construction) of braid over the leader for a true 100% connection. We run the leader 5 feet (rather than the standard 3 ft. inside the braid).  For lines of 60# and greater we'll use 16 strand hollow braid from Toro Tamer, in a dual wall construction that's both thin AND strong with appropriate served transitions from leader to braid. Our serves are a tad longer than other producers of custom wind-ons, that's a security factor. May not be as pretty as a short 1 inch serve, but it holds securely under harsh conditions - and we guarantee that fact. For leaders of 20 through 50 lb test we'll make use of multiple nail knots. We change our method for the lighter lines for good reasons, line twist and strength.  Connections are "served" or finished using 30 to 40 lb test 8 strand braid for the heavy lines and 20-30 lb 4 strand braid for the lighter tests. If you prefer a thinner single wall wind-on please let us know and we'll rig up your leaders in this manner - typically we'll make your wind-ons with a dual-wall - double thickness of braid over the leader. Then  after the transition connection we'll apply a specific adhesive and a final bonding coat. There are three levels of security on our transition connections. We can also color code your leaders either through use of colored serving thread or the hollow braid itself. Our experience dictates a few things which we do differently than others who produce wind-ons, our materials are better, diameters typically thinner, and connections more reliable both in casting and while on a larger grade fish. And, as mentioned we can color code your wind-ons for ease of selection of various tests as the example to the left presents. Feel free to give us a call if you have questions or need assistance in placing your order.

Please note, these are not commercially made wind-ons, they are more expensive and I'll suggest better made, with more care and with better materials. They will not fail, and we guarantee that fact under reasonable use - for larger quality fish. Our wind-ons are made by either Blake, Brandon or myself (Mark) - no one else. We do not farm these out, nor are these made by one of our wives in the kitchen...unlike other wind-ons which are marketed over the 'net. You know who builds ours, and there is accountability. If you want the best product made, it is our intent to build it for you as a custom product to your specs. Additionally, we now have ToroTamer's 16 strand line in colored form. So, now you can color code your leaders, different color for different test line. You've got choices: green, blue, red, yellow, and white (with white being the default color unless specified differently on your order).  Please allow up to five days for making wind-ons.

MOMOI SPECTRA to FLUOROCARBON (or) MONOFILAMENT

For connecting mono or leader to Spectra we generally recommend a 30-40 turn Bimini and 30-40 wind Albright. However, some folks prefer a less bulky transition, especially for use with heavier mono above 100#'s. In this case there are two ways to go. One is to learn some new connection systems, such as the Sato crimp connection and use of specific needles for use with mono/fluorocarbon leader to hollow-core Spectra. Another great way to go are loop to loop connections, terminating your Spectra with an appropriate bimini and use of a pre-made "wind-on" leader which represents mono or fluorocarbon connected to another material such as dacron, dynema or Spectra within which the mono is run, leaving a braided line terminating in a loop. Then it's an easy loop to loop connection that flow through your rod guides well, and allows quick and easy changing of lines.

We've worked with several firms in terms of wind-on leaders, Izor being one of the first. They use a fairly bulky dacron for the line, which does grip the leader well, also will degrade over time more than if they had used another material such as Spectra (which can be too slippery) or Dynema (which is similar to Spectra but provides more grip). We came across another manufacturer's product we do like very much for this loop to loop style of connection - Momoi. These wind-ons are available in twenty five foot lengths.
