Stripping coated braid


Recommended Posts

This should probably be in the stupid questions thread, but hey, I'd rather shamelessly plod towards a life better educated than sit here all quiet and stupid!

 

So, what's the best way of stripping coated hooklink material, without accidentally chewing through some of the braid itself (which is what I seem to be doing 50% of the time) ? Cheers. Dan.

What I've noticed with this korda stuff is at the point where I strip the coating off I get some discoloration. Almost like it's altering or removing some of the colouring from the braid itself. It's only very slight but I end up with a hook length that has a few patches that have gone silvery coloured instead of black. Assuming it's not the coin I'm using rubbing off on the braid, unlikely.

Well its either korda's new clever camou braid or its their usual tripe :) :) :)

It's probably a powder from the coating treatment to stop it sticking.
