The rigidity makes Stiff Ultra Skin absolutely ideal to use with a multitude of hookbaits and stiff rig terminal arrangements. The additional ‘stiffness’ effectively kicks out standard bottom baits, and when straightened (steamed) sets straight helping to alleviate tangles.
This amazing material offers key rigidity without compromising knot strength or affecting the manner in which knots are formed. Essentially, this means that the skin does not rupture when pulled down tight on a well tied ‘figure of 8’ Loop Knot.
In real angling terms we recommend that you choose Stiff Ultra Skin in circumstances where you are confident the lakebed is clear of debris and relatively flat so it does not kick up. This means that ‘clean’ silt, clay patches, sand and gravel etc are ideal substrates to fish over. If you fish over spots that are a bit dirtier its important to think about the lead arrangement and how to ensure the rig can lay flat, unimpeded by debris or lumpy rocky ground. Conversely, if the lake bed is soft then the lead arrangement needs to ensure the hooklink does not hold up as the lead penetrates into the substrate.
The matt finish of Stiff Ultra Skin helps the material blend into the aquatic environment. Of course this is also helped by the fact that the material sinks well, and is more likely to settle flush to the lake bed. Colours of the skin and core are matched to help maintain this excellent camouflage in completed rigs.
Stiff Ultra Skin strips cleanly and will not rupture whilst tightening down a well tied ‘figure of 8’ loop knot.
The unique polymer mix used in the skin means that Stiff Ultra Skin straightens easily and sets rigidly when steamed.
