Many fly fishermen consider measuring their leader/tippet critically important. Formulas are everywhere to be found, from complicated line tapering for long trout leader/tippet to simple straight line for bass. Tippets are a curious product and when sold as tippet are expensive. The least costly tippet monofilament (Cabela's Climax) is approximately 10?/yd. while the most expensive non-tippet monofilament fishing line (Spiderwire Mono) is approximately 2? per yard. Which raises the question, is it worth the difference?
