Yo-Zuri Top Knot
Premium Fluorocarbon

We have added Yo-Zuri's TopKnot Fluorocarbon leader to our line-up.  We'll stock this product in clear, replacing clear HD FL from Yo-Zuri from our mix of products. The HD is maintained in our inventory in Pink only, that's what folks have come to appreciate most from Yo-Zuri. The TopKnot has some differences from their HD line. It's a tad smaller in diameter and will test a tad higher according to Yo-Zuri. 

We are doing our own testing of Fl lines at the present time. It's been a few years since we checked all the lines and with all the new players it's time to see if what's offered matches up to what's claimed. Thus far we've only checked on the 40 lb lines from most suppliers, still have a few to go before publishing results. But, thus far we're seeing stretch at breaking of 4.5 inches and 44 lb average break strength with a diameter consistent with Yo-Zuri's claim (actually about 3/100ths greater). Abrasion resistance is a measure we can't measure, but by feel given the hard finish (like Sunline) we are thinking it's going to prove out very capable of dealing with harsh situations. The line is tough, will prove very durable we anticipate based upon cursory testing.

The manufacturer states the following:

Yo-Zuri Topknot Fluorocarbon Leader material is the newest product from Yo-Zuri.. The TopKnot Leader—Natural Clear—is Abrasion Resistant and Super Durable which maintains its clarity even after extended use. This allows the angler to get even more strikes on the same line. The most pressing feature, however, is the diameter to strength ratio. The TopKnot series offers the strongest possible breaking strength with an even smaller diameter than before. This is a must have product for any angler!

Interesting that Yo-Zuri mentioned the clarity. That was something I noticed with their HD line in clear.  After some time in the water, long soaks, it seemed to me that the line had an opaque characteristic.  I mentioned in my write-up of our older FL comparison testing (which blew Blackwater's claims = hype) that doing a follow-up line test comparison of FL's after being wet for an hour might produce some differing tests. That was simply based upon observation.  This is an area worth more testing, but it's interesting that Yo-Zuri is addressing this point, too.  We don't fish these lines dry, and a dry test as we and manufacturer's do may miss an important consideration.  That's a thought for future testing (and likely something my son will work on as things slow down winter-time).

bullet Yo-Zuri H.D. Carbon

The folks at Yo-Zuri recently introduced a line of improved fluorocarbon leader. This product is 100% fluorocarbon, and super soft unlike most other fluorocarbon leader products. Yo-Zuri used to handle the U.S.A. distribution of Seaguar, so they've been involved with this type of product from day one. For them to come out with their own line they knew they had to improve upon what has been available, and they've accomplished that goal. We've used this product now for several  season's time and can agree with the manufacturer's claims of softness and lack of memory. It gets high marks for abrasion resistance, low stretch, value, and underwater invisibility. Yo-Zuri's HD Carbon leader is available in both pink and clear.
