Default Re: beginner confusion on how to properly use leader and tippet

I've fairly interested in the furled leaders . Mostly interested in the ultimate dry leader. What are the cons or downside or furled leaders for dry flies? What happens if you want to do dry and wet flies? I really want to give it a try but I would like to know exactly what I'm getting into before I invest in it . I see that you have to apply a wax everyday you fish to keep it afloat, sometimes coating it multiples times a day? I thought if you apply the wax when wet, it wont be as effective as compared when it's completely dry.
