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.

Great tippet, real tough!

I love using this tippet. It ties knots well and stays strong in a fight. Friends marvel at how little coil there is in the line.

The downside is the spools. I am used to an elastic band with a ring the tippet goes through. I gather old spools of brand x tippet and wind my Hybrid Tippet on the empty spools.

Great for small dries.

Been fishing small dries on my local small stillwaters recently, and struggling with fluorocarbon dragging them under or copolymer refusing to sink for more than 2 or 3 casts after degreasing. Last two outings tried the Sunday hybrid in 3.75 and 6.5lb - so far it seems to do the trick. It cuts through the surface well and needs degreasing far less frequently, but doesn’t pull the fly down if left static. 11 rainbows netted over the two trips and no break-offs can’t be bad!
