Default "softest" butt section material recommendations for leaders??

While on my quest to build a better leader for my fly fishing this summer, I came across this article by George Harvey...

HARVEY’S NEW LEADER FORMULA

I'm going to give it a try & I'm hoping some of you can help me select some of the "softest leader material I can purchase", as George puts it in his article!

I was hoping to find leader material that floats like mono. Maybe all leader material floats like mono, I don't know!

I'll be purchasing sizes .015″, .013″, .011″, and .009.

Anyways, that is my question for today, what is the "softest" material out there...thanks!
