    Default Furled leaders....

    What is the preferred knot to attach the tippet to the leader when using a furled leader? Are you guys using the same as the mono or poly leaders?

    Thanks,

    Bruce

    The furled leaders I'm currently using come with loops on both ends. One the line end, I tie a small piece of amnesia with a perfection loop then handshake it to the leader. On the tippet end, the same thing.
    The head, the tail, the whole damn thing

    To tie my tippet to my leader I use a double surgens knot with a loop. Never had one slip or break.

    Perfection loop.

    I use a loop to loop connection myself.

    I make my furled leaders with the shorb loop and I have the loop in my lines, so I agree on the Perfection on the end of my tippet.
