Our choice of tippet material
Maxima Chameleon tippet material is the given choice for so many salmon and trout anglers around the world and for a good reason – it does what it promises.
There are many reasons why you should stick with Maxima Chameleon.
A soft shock absorbing nylon.
Forms great uniform knots
Great breaking strength
Perfect to present big and small flies to picky freshwater fish
Probably the only fly shop in the world that keep leaders and tippet in the fridge…
Longer lasting when kept cold
