The Beartooth Braided Shocker Butt Perfection Loop

I always like to share products and any information about fly fishing I come across with my fellow bloggers. I recently purchased the Beartooth Braided Shocker Butt—section with spliced perfection loop. The main reason I went with this product is the break offs I had recently with my tippets on a fishing trip, especially when I set the hook with force. Randy at our local fly shop recommended I try the shocker butt and today I put it to good use with the wooly bugger on a spot in 5 ft. of water. It worked to perfection and what really surprised me was less tension on the tippet. I will diffidently keep using it especially when I am nymphing. The following is a description of the product---

The Beartooth Shocker Butt not only connects the fly line with any type of leader but incorporates an elastic, shock absorbing material that stretches to nearly twice it's original length, and cushions the sudden strike from the fish that would normally snap tippet.

Bigerrfish mentioned something similar in a comment to me - and since I'm the king of snapped tippet, this has my name written all over it.

Thanks for passing along the info, Bill - Lord knows I need all the help I can get!

I use the shocker the other day and really like the fact that I could put a tremendous amount of stress on the rod and the leader/tippet, and not break off like I have so many other times. Thanks for the comment.
