    Default Furled leaders...

    Gonna give "furled leaders" a try this year, I ordered some a while back, one for my 4wt and one for the 7wt.
    They are a little pricey but if they hold up like they say they will, then they will be $$ well spent.

    I have been out on the lawn and tried em and they sure do turn over nicely.
    These are furled leaders, not braided.

    Has anyone else tried them?

    Hi fyshstykr,

    There has been a ton of discussion about furled leaders. I have not used them my self. Why don't you use the Search feature at the top of the page for "Furled Leaders". You will find a lot of information. There is even information on how to make your own furled leaders.

    Curious as to what experiences other people have had, and what they think of em.

    I make my own furled leaders using plans I found on the internet. My experiences are that they turn over longer tippet sections much more easily than traditional tapered leaders. I have turned over 10 feet of 6x tippet with furled leaders I have made. They also have almost no memory in cold weather. In addition, due to their design they allow a certain amount of shock absorption when big fish strike. This helps to protect light tippets better.

    I will never go back to tapered or knotted leaders.

    Good info Grouse, not sure I will ever need to turn over 10' of 6x, but nice to know it can happen.
