We finish the ends of our leaders 3 ways. 1) With a knot and shrink wrap, 2) Shrink Wrap and no knot 3) No knot and no shrink wrap. We do this on both ends of the leader. WE ALSO DEBURR EVERY SINGLE CRIMP USED ON FLUORO LEADERS
Our Flurocarbon Leaders come in 3 different Test Weights. 200 Lb., 170 Lb. and 130 Lb. Currently all weights are Seaguar Premier.
Our Swivels are 220 Lb. test on the 200 Lb. and 170 lb. leaders. 200 Lb. test on the 130 Lb. leader.
Our swivels also pivot on both ends!!!
Our Snaps are 250 Lb. test Stay-Lok on the 200 Lb. and 170lb leaders, and 150 Lb. test Cross Lock on the 130 Lb. leader.
We will build your leaders with or without a knot and with or without a loop protection for the same price. Every time you put a knot in Flurocarbon it weakens at that point. That is why many anglers insist on leaders made only with crimps. If not done properly a crimp can fail. If you look at the construction photo you will see how we place a knot. I think we have addressed most leader issues with this building technique. We place a single knot on the tag end of the leader and crimp on either side. If a crimp ever failed the leader would still hold. Now it does create a small bump on one side of the leader but placing a small piece of shrink wrap over it keeps it smooth and avoids weeds catching up. Again it is your choice if you wish for your leaders to have knot.
Our wire leaders are built with a single crimp only.
