Orvis® Super Strong™ Nylon Tippet 5 5 4 4
Best tippet I've used so far. I purchased this tippet material a few days ago at my local fly shop and have tried it once and already know this is quality stuff. Orvis makes great everything, and since I live in VT it's even better to know it for sure. September 7, 2011
Great product Great price and you get more compared to other brands. Knots stayed tied. Strong and the fish in the ponds and lakes in the Dallas/Fort Worth area keep biting flies on this tippet which makes me believe they can’t see the line in the water. October 28, 2010
Tippet, tippet good! I use 3x with my 6wt and it was good enough to land 9 fish out of the local river and retrieve my fly out of tree no problem. It's also easy to tie. July 16, 2010
Great in small sizes I really prefer this in the smaller sizes over flourocarbon because the knots are stronger, and its general tensile strength is superior to most others. The value of 40 meters is great too. I have found that you should keep it out of the light, and use up by the end of the season. August 5, 2008

A: 
For fly fishing mostly. Tapered leaders cost approx $4 ea. so when about 3-4 ft of that gets broken off or used in tying on new flies, "tippet" material (pretty much just fishing line...) is tied on to the end. I won't get into specifics but if you are not fly fishing, tippets are nothing to worry about.

A: 
It really depends on what you're doing. You should match your rod weight to your reel weight, then get the same weight fly line. Start off with some WF(weight forward) line, it's the easiest to cast and by far the most popular. Get a floating line, and depending on the kind of fishing you're doing, a 7-9 FT leader in a 3-5X. The higher the X the thinner the leader is. Make sure you get a tapered knotless leader, available in any fly shop. This tippet material is used to tie on to your leader when you've lost a few feet from switching flies. Hope this helps, good luck!

A: 
On one Fly Reel, there are normally 3 to 4 lines. Starting from the spool, and working out, you have, backing, flyline, leader, and Tippet. Alot of people I know go without the tippet. The backing is normally braided line, and the fly line is colored plastic line, and your leader is usually clear.

Your rods should have Weight listed on them, its a scale from 2 to 12, 2 being the lighest, and 12 being the heaviest. Your Fly line, Fly Reels, & Fly Rod all have to mach, or be within the suggested limits.

Dry or Wet flying is a personal preference. I have a buddy who a nymph lover through and through (Wet fly), but, personally I like dry flies, but, have been known to rig a Hopper/Dropper combo ( a dry fly, with a nymph behind it.).

Good luck Fishing!

A: 
Depends on your leader length, and fishing situation. When I use it, I only use enough, to make up for any leader I may have cut off.

A: 
Since you admit to being new to flyfishing I wonder if you may be asking about leader length as well as tippet length. Most people use 7 1/2 ft to 9 ft tapered leaders for general fishing. The thick butt section attaches to your flyline. The tippet section of that leader is the thin end and as you replace flies it gets shorter from cutting. So at some point you would tie on an additional length of tippet rather than replace the whole leader. For a 7 1/2 ft leader the tippet would be about 18". On a 9 ft. it would be 20 -22" on average. Hope this helps.

A: 
Break strength. For example, 4X may be 6 lb whereas 3X is 8 lb.

For leaders, it would be talking about the smallest diameter of the leader, the end where the flies are tied on.

A: 
The "X" is a simplified reference to the diameter. For a tapered leader it applies to the tippet end. The actual break weight of the line at any given diameter is different based on the material (such as mono compared to flourocarbon) and by manufacturer. Generally speaking the higher the "x" number the thinner and likely more limp the line for smaller flies. The lower the number the thicker and usually stiffer the line to use for bulkier flies.
