Those of you wanting to renew your sinking lines before the start of the 2017 season might want to take a look at the new ones in the Greys Platinum Extreme range.
Coming in four sink rates, intermediate (1½ inches per second – IPS), T3 (3IPS), T5 (5IPS) and T7 (7IPS), these lines have a head length of 38 feet that sinks at the rate given and a 82ft orange hi-viz running line which sinks at 1½ IPS. All four are dual coloured, have very little memory and a smooth, slick finish, meaning they sail through the rings with ease when cast. The intermediate is translucent, T3 green, T5 brown and T7 grey and they come in ratings WF6 to WF8, with the intermediate coming in a WF5 as well. Each line comes with two small braided loops to attach your backing and leader. The new design in the tapers means they do cast! Be warned!
