While at Cabela's today I picked up a pre-made furled leader. I've read several of the posts on furled leaders on the site and figured I'd pick one up as they were on sale about 50% off, and if the leader worked as intended it would last long enough to justify the price.

The leader was made by BlueSky Furled leaders out of nylon. The thing I noticed when I got home and was attaching the leader to my line was how stiff the loops at both ends were. On the flyline end the loop is so stiff I have concerns it will bite into the loop on the flyline. For those who make their own furled leaders is this normal?
