Skafars Neon Wax for brighter sighters


Skafars Neon Wax is a soft wax you can apply to your sighter material to make it more visible or to any tippet to turn it into a sighter. I dab it on with my thumb with a little side to side motion as I slide the leader along. It is exceptionally bright and will help you see a dull sighter a lot more easily at distance. You can also wipe it off easily with a cloth or with a few swipes of your fingers. I generally need to reapply it a couple of times a day to maintain brightness. The wax does not increase flotation so apply some Payette Paste as well if you want flotation.

Application tip: when temperatures are cold it is wise to blow on the wax to warm it and make it soft before applying to the leader. It also applies best when you trap the tippet/leader between your thumb and the wax.

Good stuff

I fished a micro leader for the first time a few days ago and although I really liked that I could get good drifts at a greater distance, I also noticed that I couldn't really see my sighter as well as I needed or wanted to. A quick application of the red wax made a huge difference in spotting and tracking my sighter on those longer casts. I'll pick up a second contrasting color for different light situations.

Skafars Wax -Good Idea But Not Practical

On the positive side, the pink wax I purchased was very bright in the sunlight, exactly as advertised. On the negative side, it only lasted about an hour before mostly coming off. It also rubbed off on my 4X leader when wound on the real. It was difficult to 100% remove from the 4X fluoro. It also stains your fingers, which you need to wipe on something, the right knee of my waders in my case (a look I did not desire). Bottom line - good in an emergency when you have to create an on stream sighter, but not for general use.
