I think I must have somehow ruined them, because a lot of reputable people on this board swear by them. I gave up tring to make them work for me. I have no complaint with the leaders I use (either tapered or home-made knotted leaders).
What is a spiral leader? Are you talking braided leaders or furled maybe?
I have never seen a well built furled leader have a memory. No coiling just pull it out of the packaging and it drops to the floor straight as an arrow.
