Default Re: hand tied leaders

You'd be better off with a heavier butt
I like to do about 60% butt, 20% mid, 20% tip for a better "transfer of power" from butt to tip.

With the material that you used I would have gone
5'-20#
1' -14#
1' - 8#
18"- 4#
Yeah I know that doesn't quite match the formula, but it's close enough.

You can also step down half as much at a time. That's what Lefty recommends.
4'-20#
2'-14#
1'-8#
18"- 4#
You always want at least 1 1/2' to 2' of tippet
