Not trying to be a [email protected], but why would you need a hi vis shock leader?

I spool my sloshes with Sufix Tri in the Hi Vis Red and that's the best Hi Vis I've seen (no pun intended). Maybe find that in 50#, 80#, etc and use that as a shock leader.

If you are casting on a public field, it's easier to find the breakoffs.

Sufix Supreme Neon Orange.(65lb. & 80lb.) I think it is easier to lay the leader line on when the running line is a different color. Some others use Stren Yellow. :) pelican man.

Suffix in both the Green and red though they are little difficult to see at certain times when the grass is not very green.

Last year in the US I was using 80lb Ultima PowerFlex in Fire Orange - easy to find.

The best of the lot is Mustad's Black Ayaka - jet black and can be seen for at least 25m in any colour of grass - the downside is that we cannot use it. :(

Penn TuffStuff in Fluro Yellow stadn out well.

Larry,

I got my Ultima PowerFlex from Chapmans Sea Angling - 200m (660ft) was £6.99 (buy 2 get 3). They do not have an email address. You could try Southend Angling ([email protected])

The Black Ayaka was supplied to me via a source in Italy, it's not cheap at £15.00 for a 100m (330ft) spool though it has very little stretch and the 0.80 is rated at 100lb.

I hope this helps.

Led.

Sufix neon orange is in the U.K.(marshtackle.com) They have been very good to do deal with. If you are not sure about something; then send them an e-mail. I have found them to be very prompt.:) Larry.

Larry,

There's a really nice Big Chap who lurks in there.
What he don't know about fishing & casting isn't worth bothering about.
Dave Hughes is helpful too. Great shop in a good corner of the UK.

From what I remember, when I was looking for this neon Orange and talking to Sufix in N.C.; the Sufix Supreme Hi-Vis Neon Orange shockleader is only available in the U.K. My spool of red tritanium is 20lb. test line; not shockleader. What lb. test is your tritanium? Call your tackle guy and see what he says. Larry.:)
