Default Re: length for a leader?

I like a three part leader most of the time for bass on a floating line . One with 60" of 40# for the butt, 20" of 25# for the mid, and 20" of 12# for the tippet is easy.

If I was going to go with a straight mono leader of 10# test, I would not make it much more than 6 feet long.
That's about as long as you can make it and still expect it to turn over
