Hybrid is superior quality copolymer nylon monofilament, coated with a micro thin layer of fluorocarbon. The 2 bonds of materials combine the high performing characteristics of both materials.

Strength / Diameter Copolymer is easy to knot but loses up to 20% of it's strength when wet. The fluorocarbon coating maintains the wet strength of the tippet which means you can fish a tippet up to 20% thinner than you could if you used pure nylon. Fishing a thinner tippet means that you can fish smaller flies, more naturally and spook less fish. 

Light reflection Light reflecting off the clear surface of tippet spooks fish. Hybrid has a very slight grey tint which reduces light glare by 60% which results in more fish hooked. 

Abrasion resistance Fluorocarbon is more abrasion resistance than nylon but is also a little stiffer. Combining nylon and fluorocarbon creates a supple but robust tippet material that will not break when fishing over snags. Essential when nymphing is boulder strewn rivers.

Knots Pure fluorocarbon is very hard to knot. Heat builds up and snaps the tippet. Nylon is very easy to tie. Combining the 2 materials means you can benefit from all the features of fluorocarbon but still tie knots very easily with cold / wet hands.

Stretch Fluorocarbon stretches less than copolymer. Hybrid stretches less than pure copolymer because it is coated with fluorocarbon.

This is a good line

Have been using it for the last month and had some good fish on it with no problems of it braking.

Looking to try something new

I am always looking to try new products out. So when I saw this I thought it looked interesting. I'm more than satisfied with the cast and presentation of my flies. I recommend the hybrid for durability and a good turnover of your fly. I've used it on my floating and intermediate lines with no issues.
