    sirhoops;
    Your leader was interesting in its construction. your formula makes a very delicate leader, I liked the way it cast.
    8/0 Uni is only around 1# test, 6/0 is around 2. A lot of furled leader users like the 6/0 Uni. The leader is only as strong and 1/2 of the strands in the tippet section.

    I see on the strength I must have looked at 6/0 not 8/0 strength. Thanks for the input

    Received mine today and can't wait to fish some of them...I did not want to carry my color all the way through so I just made my color on my first and last dowels and then ran one loop of my tan 8/0 through those sections...the idea was to give me a Czech nymph type furled...although I found out you couldn't use it in comp I am getting into that a little and didn't want to give up my furled leader. I was curious about the break strength after some input and did end up catching a 4lbs bass on it...just goes to show you never know.

    Jack, was my shorb loop actually through the leader or was it a threaded whip finish...I know I had one that my shorb messed up and so I had to thread finish it and did not mean to send it and I may have mixed it up and put the wrong one on my rod...just curious thanks
