Default Close up Pics of Furled Leader and other ????

does anyone have some close up pics of a furled leader.

I found a sight that went into excellent detail in building a jig and making the leader. I guess I'm going to take a shot at making one.

I do have a couple leaders that a fellow FF'er turned me on to and when I look at the end loops under mag and not ever having seen one before I'm having a hard time imagining the before and after.

It sure would help to see up close some different furled leaders.

Not sure if it will help or not, but you might take a look at Ebay (eBay - New & used electronics, cars, apparel, collectibles, sporting goods & more at low prices). You don't need to log in, just do a search on "Furled Leaders", you'll see pictures of a number of designs.

Here's a pic I have on a reel that suffered because a friend insisted on stripping out line with each back cast!

The leader inside is made of 6/0 Uni-thread and presents as gentle as a breeze. Micro-drag is all but non-existent too because thread is so supple.
You can clearly see the taper.
