Default Tippets

I wondering if I could use Berkley Fireline 8lb. as a tippet. Its size is 4X or apprx .007. I would attach it to a 3X tapered leader.
Will this Fireline work. I love it because of its strength.
I'm also looking at Premium Furled Leader uni-thread. Do you know anything about this? Or should I just stick with standard tapered leader. On E-Bay you can get this Furled Leader for as little as $4.50.
Also the berkley fireline is smoke in color, thanks again

I use furled leaders. I'll never go back. I get them for a bit cheaper. Joni makes a good one.

I've used Vanish 6lb for tippet for some of my streamers.
