    First wanted to build an atomic bomb in my back yard, but my wife wouldn't let me. So i choose to build furled leaders with a hint of science to it. Or more seriously, the aim of this whole thing is...

    As the extra stored energy will cause the leader to shorten more(the first time you won't know how much), i'd go for determining the length of a testleader using your method to find the % of...

    In the proposed method of twisting until 10% and then twisting more until the torque setting of the screwdriver is reached i think you'll end up with a shorter leader then you expected. All the...

    Sure, but you can also fail to make a profit if you don't sell because of a high price. On the other hand i think the real specialty products (flies for example) are way too cheap to make a profit....

    If you're looking for a description to make leaders from braided backing as opposed to furling or knotting see this site. It's in german but the pictures should explain a lot.
