Default Re: Furled leaders...

I make my own furled leaders using plans I found on the internet. My experiences are that they turn over longer tippet sections much more easily than traditional tapered leaders. I have turned over 10 feet of 6x tippet with furled leaders I have made. They also have almost no memory in cold weather. In addition, due to their design they allow a certain amount of shock absorption when big fish strike. This helps to protect light tippets better.

I will never go back to tapered or knotted leaders.
