gucci tippet

I've heard from a couple of sources that the fluorogucci material is actually stronger because "nylon" looses up to 20% of its stength when it becomes saturated. Fluorgucci tippet doesn't absorb water, doesn't deteriorate in sun light, and cost $$$. I'm not ready to dawn a wet suit and take a dip to check it out, I'll believe the prop top that the refractive value are similar to that of water.
