Default What type of leader do you use?

I have used commercial tapered leaders for a long time. For better or worse, I often end up with some creation of my own design. I generally start with a 7 to 9' 4x and end up cutting it down and adding tippet when I change approaches. I just don't like carrying a bunch of leaders, seems like a pain to keep them organized, and I just don't like changing entire leader.

Long and short, I like to "customize" tapered leaders on stream. But I'm ready to buy some bulk materials and start building true knotted leaders. I've also read some posts here about furling and am also interested in this.

So please share your preferences, experience and knowledge on the subject!

Thanks!
Dean
