Default Airflow Polyleaders and Rio VersiLeaders

Have you guys used the Airflow Polyleaders and are they the same as the Rio VersiLeaders?

I have used both. Found that airflo seemed to work better with one of my scandi lines and was curious why, so I weighed them and there was a significant difference. I have the weights written down somewhere, but there was a thread on this on another forum.

I just received the Airflo Bass/Pike 4' Floating that I bought from Ebay. The material is very different. I am going to compare it with a regular mono leader and with a furled leader.

I tried the floating Airflo leader trout fishing and found the mass of polymer coating over the mono core caused a distinct "kick" at the front of my line disrupting precise presentation and communicative feel. Used as a wet fly depth locator with Spey or switch outfits they may have an application but not for dry fly use.

SnS thank you for the input.

I am planning to use it for bass poppers and the intermediate for streamers and crawfish flies.
