it's probably 25 cents or less for the 'leader' vs $4 - lol - yes I'm cheap
I rig up similar to dhayden, with one exception, I have a loop on the end of a tapered butt system. I can loop on a longer piece of 2 or 3x flouro then a triple surgeons knot to attach my tippet. Work for indi fishing or high sticking for me...
