I just looked at the Feather Craft site and they said this; "They land like a feather, and no "rooster tail" when you lift it off the water." It sounds to me like they are saying furled leaders [of any variety] reduce this. I guess I can see where the irregular surface of a furled leader might do this, but I have not really seen this as a problem with any leader, furled or not. Where did you hear that the main concern about furled leaders is the rooster spray when the line is lifted from the water?

I have never used a braided leader. Are they sold anywhere or is this a DIY thing?
