Malinís revolutionary BOA No-Kink Titanium shock leader wire is the best choice for all fishing applications requiring a leader, whether it be live or dead bait, conventional lures or fly.
Malin's BOA No-Kink Titanium shock leader offers all of the following advantages:
  • Corrosion proof for maximum abrasion resistance.
  • A stretch value of 10% to 15% for increased hook setting ability, and protection against excessive shock.
  • Rivals fluorocarbon for invisibility in water because of its natural color and non-glare finish; stands up to toothy fishes, fluorocarbon does not.
  • Highly flexible and virtually impossible to kink in a fishing application; cannot be haywire twisted and does not need to be crimped.
  • A titanium leader than can be tied using the following knots: standard clinch knot, perfection loop, Albright to mono, snell to hooks, figure eight knot, surgeonís knot and loop to loop. Just pull the knots down snug using pliers, until you feel the stretch, and trim tag end. The knot will appear to be loose and will not pack down like a mono knot, but donít worry, they will hold.

Best leader material on the market
August 24, 2020
I have tried multiple brands of titanium leader. This is BY FAR THE BEST. Stands up well to bites and clinch knots tie the best with the boa wire. Must have for any kingfishing
By Tdm
Works as expected.

Works well does not kink like wire. Using cinch knots....just donít expect to cinch knot all the way down like mono or flouro.
  • Strength/Flexibility
  • Price
  • Tough to tie knots

Relatively east to use titanium at this strength

I have used different brands of titanium wire, they are relatively similar. The Malin in the 30# seemed a bit easier to tie and were a bit less. Very flexible.
  • Flexible, reusable for a few fish, stretches.
  • Cost, special knot tying/rigging.

Not all titanium wires are created equal

Just like braids, fluorocarbons and monofilaments, the various brands of titanium wire vary. BOA is the most expensive and in my experience far and away the best. It is a thinner diameter and seems to be a bit more flexible, which makes it easier to knot. Like all titanium wire, it won't kink as will single-strand wire, so you can catch multiple fish without having to retie your leaders. It also doesn't corrode.

  • Thinner, more flexible and does not corrode
  • More costly

Good leader material.

I like to use 30lb for the front section of my kingfish leaders, then 40lb to the 2 stinger hooks. Very springy and lasts longer than the regular Malin steel
  • Long lasting = less time re-tying when on the eater.

Durable leader material
June 12, 2018
I like to use the 40lb to make kingfish leaders, and it holds up much better than your typical steel. I use this method to make connections:

Itís a little time consuming, but works well. I can use a single leader for 3 or 4 large kings without having to worry about kinks and breaking.
  • Very flexible, strong, durable.
  • Can?t haywire twist.

Great for ice fishing !
January 15, 2016
Excellent leader for ice fishing toothy critters (ie:muskies & pike) I like to use the 20 lb for bass & pickerel . Practically invisible I even watched a friend pull up a 12 lb walleye with the 30 lb test ! (targeting muskies)
  • ties like regular line never twists
  • expensive, burns me up when I loose a rig in structure etc

Titanium is the way to go

I fish for Wahoo and the leaders made with Boa Titanium are far better than regular cable ones. Wahoo rolls over leaders and try to bite and cut them. This Leaders hold much better and do not Kink at all!!!
  • Last for long time, no Kinks great power.

Boa Titanium Leader

Works great as a tip-up leader ice fishing for pike. I use a simple clinch knot to tie a quick-strike rig. Will catch quite a few fish before the wire finally fatigues
and fails.
  • Thin diameter. Strong. Lasts a long time. Simple to tie knots.

August 28, 2013
It's practically impossible to tie good knots I used 40 lb and it broke easily! Knots were not dependable don't buy this crap
  • Thin
  • Can't tie a knot!!
