Buyer Beware Fake Seaguar Fluorocarbon
Well, one more thing to watch out for in this crazy world. If you see a bargain price on Seaguar’s premium Blue Label Fluorocarbon from seemingly shady online retailers, you may be buying a counterfeit product. It has come to light that someone is packaging regular monofilament or similar material and selling it as the very desirable Seaguar Blue Label.
Seaguar has reached out on their Facebook page to warn anglers and relayed one person’s video demonstration of the difference between the real product and the fake.
