I personally favor the co-polymer over the mono leader material and I am in a tossup between the fluoro-carbon and the co-polymer leader material.
The plus side to the fluoro-carbon leader is that light does not transmit down thru the leader to the bait like it does with a mono leader.
I’ve been using the floral carbon (on and off) for the past 15-years and it has been very dependable and I have landed some very nice fish with it, the fluoro to braid (RP) splice knot and the fluoro to Improved Clinch (IC) knot to the hook have held well for me with no failures.
I am toying with the idea of going back and trying a 12-lb
co-polymer leader again to see if I get better or worse results.
So what leader material do you favor and at what leader weight (pound strength) do you use?
