Default Building Furled Leaders Without Jigs or Tools

(YouTube)

When I try this or using a drill the 10# big game or other line comes unwound in places.


I have even tired the Furled Leaders made with pegs that did not work well either for me.

I have even seen live demos at the flyfishing clubs.

Ideas on how to fix problems?

I just need to work the bugs out of my process.

Did I go to high school with you in East Texas?

I knew someone with ears like that; we have lost contact with each other...

Not from Texas. I paid good money for these ears!
The whiz at twisted leaders here is Kelly Glissmeyer. It seems pretty straightforward on twisting them, but maybe it's the brand of mono you're using.
And you're pretty vague on what happened to the furled leaders. What happened to them?

There is at least one or more places where the twists have come undone.

If you like jalapeno's try ornamental peppers!
