What does all this 3X, 4X, 5X mean?


The “X” system is a hangover from Victorian/Edwardian fishing days and refers to the number of times a piece of gut is pulled through a hole in a metal grid to make it thinner. Lucklily we do not use cat gut but it is still used as a unit of measure. Unfortunately the strengths of different manufacturers lines are all different.

Choosing the right Fishing Leader Materials / Tippets for your presentation should NOT be determined by lb. test…

It is best determined by the diameter of the Fishing Leader Material / Tippets. 

You don’t have to carry a pocket calculator with you to figure out which size Fishing Leader Material / Tippets to use, if you follow a few simple rules.

A tippet is given an “X” number which is determined by its diameter, such as 1X, 2X, 3X, etc.  This number, which is in thousandths, is easy to decipher using a simple formula:  11 – X = DIAMETER.

  • X = .003 inch (11 – 8 = 3)
  • 7X = .004 inch (11 – 7 = 4)
  • 6X = .005 inch (11 – 6 = 5)
  • 5X = .006 inch (11 – 5 = 6)
  • 4X = .007 inch (11 – 4 = 7)
  • 3X = .008 inch (11 – 3 = 8)
  • 2X = .009 inch (11 – 2 = 9)
  • 1X = .010 inch (11 – 1 = 10)
  • 0X = .011 inch (11 – 0 = 11)
