Monofilament Lines Supplex Hooklength
Supplex is a fantastic material for float and feeder fishing main lines, pole rigs and hooklengths. Monofilament falls into two distinct categories: The first is stuff that’s long life, tough, abrasion resistant and doesn’t damage easily. Unfortunately, it is prone to be springy and come off the reel in coils. The second category is extremely supple and limp and very easy to manage both on the reel and in casting. But it tends to be soft and more prone to damage. Amazingly, Supplex has the best of both. It is incredibly supple, (that’s how it gets it’s name!) but at the same time, it is tough, long life, abrasion resistant and not prone to damage, including shot damage.
The Drennan tackle company was founded in 1967 when its current Managing Director, Peter Drennan, began producing a small range of Balsawood floats in his mother's garage. Having served his angling apprenticeship with some of the finest anglers of that era; Dick Walker, Peter Stone, the Taylor Brothers and England's first World Champion, Bill Lane, the young Peter Drennan was already recognised as something of a tackle expert. With the ability to design superior floats and the craft skill to make them, the original one man business expanded steadily from those humble garage beginnings.
Drennan International is very strong on the engineering side, from Computer Aided Design (CAD), through toolmaking, high-tech plastics processing to building its own special purpose production machinery. On all aspects of product design, manufacture, packaging, quality control and customer service, the company has expert anglers in key positions.
The criteria for Drennan is always that the product must be good value for money, trouble free and must help catch fish.
