Tough Trace offers other attributes to suit certain fishing applications. For starters, it is clearer than Supple Trace, which is great if you’re fishing for finicky species or in clear water. Black Magic claims it has better knot strength but I haven’t really had either fail on me at the knot. It has higher abrasion resistance and if you’re after something that’s halfway between a mono and fluorocarbon this would be it. Any fish you target that may provide a long fight or have your leader chafing either from the fish’s mouth, skin or the bottom structure is a good candidate for Tough Trace. So if you want something that is going take some punishment but you do not want to move to a fluorocarbon, this is the leader for you. It’s a good leader to use when trolling for pelagics and makes a great shock leader when targeting sharks. It has a good mix of abrasion resistance with a bit of stretch, which is what you want in many situations. It comes in a few extra breaking strains to Supple Trace and is the same diameter to breaking strain.
