Seaguar Reveals New Entry Level BasiX Fluorocarbon Fishing Line


Louisville, KY (July 2021)

Goodbye mono and fluoro pretenders. Hello, genuine Seaguar fluoro. Here comes BasiX™, a mainline that delivers all the benefits of 100% fluorocarbon at a price everybody will love.

Seaguar, the inventor of fluorocarbon fishing lines, is introducing BasiX Fluorocarbon to meet the demand from anglers who are managing a budget but not willing to sacrifice quality and performance in their fluorocarbon line. “We’ve spent our first 50 years developing high-performance lines and leaders used by pros, captains, guides and avid anglers across the country” says Gerry Benedicto, Seaguar General Manager. “With BasiX, we’re looking forward to serving the millions of anglers who are either fishing for the first time, getting reacquainted with the sport or managing a tight budget” he added.

Seaguar BasiX Fluorcarbon is made from 100% custom Seaguar fluorocarbon resins, so it’s virtually invisible underwater and boasts the kind of knot strength and abrasion resistance you expect from Seaguar. It’s a soft, supple, easy-casting line that comes off a reel smoothly for a fret-free fishing experience.

Benedicto noted that Seaguar is in unique position to make fluorocarbon lines that meet the needs of anglers across the budget spectrum. “We are the only fluorocarbon line company making our own fluoro resins, so we control the process from start to finish. That’s why we’re able to adjust formulations and constantly expand our portfolio of products to offer performance lines at an incredible value.”

Available in retail stores in mid-January, 2022, new Seaguar BasiX Fluorocarbon will be available in 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 15, and 20lb tests on 200-yard spools with a MSRP of $9.99
