I guess there could be some argument that what I make isn't a true "furled" leader, but having used several furled leaders of different materials I find I get results with the ones I make that suit me fine.
I use mono or flouro fishing line in the 6-12# range depending on the rod (3 to 6 wt) and line it's intended for and the length of the finished leader.
