Hey Nick,are you fixing leader to braid using an albright knot then?I used to use Amnesia and still have some somewhere.
I use FC leaders now and I have lengthened them to about 8 foot long,from 3 foot ish.
You dont need to use FC,just use a good quality modern mono that knots well.
This year I have started to 'double-up' the braid on the Albright knot and only use about 8 turns,I also put a half hitch on the FC end just to make sure.
The longer leaders were used on a RB270 which is 8'10".Hey Nick,are you fixing leader to braid using an albright knot then?
How do your 8' leaders compare in use to the shorter ones.
What length of rod have you?.
