Sunline's Assassin FC Fluorocarbon Line

Sunline's Assassin FC Fluorocarbon Line

Across the years, there have not been many Midwest finesse anglers who have spooled their spinning reels with fluorocarbon line.

Dave Reeves of Lansing, Kansas, is a fluorocarbon devotee. He is also a longtime Finesse News Network member, regular contributor on Ozark Anglers.com, and proprietor of Prescription Plastics, which manufactures a mushroom-style jig that Reeves calls Ozark Finesse Heads. Nowadays, Reeves spends most of his time plying the crystal clear water at Table Rock Lake, Missouri, where he has found that fluorocarbon line is an essential ingredient for his Midwest finesse applications.

But the majority of Midwest finesse anglers who have tried to follow Reeve's fluorocarbon ways have found it too wiry, which makes it difficult to use. They complain that at times its wiry nature causes it to spring off the spools of their spinning reels and become an entangled mess between their reels and the first guide on their spinning rods. So, instead of spooling their reels with fluorocarbon line, they spool them with braided line, and then they affix about a five-foot fluorocarbon leader to the braided line.

Sunline recently introduced a new fluorocarbon line that might solve the problems that Midwest finesse anglers have encountered with other fluorocarbon lines.


It is called Assassin FC, and it is a 100 percent fluorocarbon line that features a patented process called Pion Technology. According to the folks at Sunline, the Pion process is a molecular procedure that improves the slickness, abrasion resistance, and longevity of the line. It also chemically alters the surface of the line, which allows the line to preserve its key characteristics longer than other fluorocarbon lines. It has also been described as plasma-treated line, and it is a procedure that was developed at the Tokyo Institute of Technology. 


Midwest finesse anglers can purchase a 225-yard sp00l of either eight- or 10-pound-test Assassin FC from one Internet retailer for $19.99.
