Most Innovative Fishing Line
ICAST's New Product Showcase embodies the sportfishing industry's innovative and entrepreneurial spirit and rewards that ingenuity with awards in several categories. Mastiff clinched the prestigious award for its exceptional contribution to the Fishing Line Category
Improves durability and increases the binding strength of knots
Featuring Shimano's innovative NANOARMOR™ technology, Mastiff significantly improves durability and increases the binding strength of knots. Imperceptible to human touch, these micro-ridges on the outer layer of the line prevent knot-slipping during battles with large fish and minimize slippage and breakage during common bass angling techniques like twitching, jerking, and casting large lures.
Superior suppleness and surface smoothness
Mastiff is crafted in Japan using 100% fluorocarbon and subjected to stringent quality control measures. Rigorous inspection at the factory ensures an even surface down to just 1 micron, far surpassing the industry standards.
Specifically designed to meet the demands of bass anglers worldwide
Mastiff's low linear elongation provies unmatched sensitivity, allowing anglers to feel the slightest distrubance on the line. Responsive performance and a supple surface enable frictionless casting, optimal control and effortless hooksets.
