No more tapered mono for me. Furled leaders all the way. I have both uni and mono types. All have rings.

I use them all the time. I have various lengths and types to suit different line weights. Mine come from Mr Trout on the U.K. Forum, excellent quality

Started using Zen Outfitters furled leaders, some sort of floatant treatment is done before you get them.
They float wonderfully all day everyday, day after day, don't know how, don't know why, don't care.

Not cheap, but totally worth it because now my friends think I'm a much better caster than I really am. Although that won't last, since everyone I've given a Zen leader to has ordered some themselves and now know the truth.

I too am never going back.

If the Shorb loop on the tippet end is small enough you just need to tie a perfection loop in the tippet end & do a loop to loop connection. if you make it a little heavier than your final tippet (to the fly) you can even loop to loop that end or use a blood knot. Point is you don' have to have the tippet ring to use the leader...

Furled is all I use now and I won't be going back. Same reasons as previously stated. I get mine from cougar176 on ebay. or his other web site. Never a problems, but I do need to experiment with shorter lengths.

I'm surprised by the lack of "cons" on this thread... Looks like I had better get onboard this train.
