Chase
Great for most fly fishing (from prior model)
Pros: Abrasion resistance & strength
Comments: I have used this for over 40 years of flyfishing for everything from permit & mahimahi to crappie& catfish.Its abrasion resistance is far superior to most leaders (try it against coral) and strength is legendary.Stiffness may be a bit too much for some who use very light tippets regularly for dries (clear or UG seem less stiff v. chameleon).It forms blood knots better than most other material.Cheap & effective!

Deano
Quite' Sneaky' Easy presentation, Extends nice with no backlash   (from prior model)
Pros: Easy To Handle
Comments: Rigging your fly Rod depending on game 'Is a quest for the ultimate combination. I'ts really a lot like golf, It can't be truly perfected And all you can do is research and adjust to a condition that changes hourly' depending on stream versus pool, Spawning and waiting for tide to do their dance of love.

Pros: Good For Variety Of Fish, Couldn't be easier, Easy To Store, Easy To Handle, Strong
Best Uses: Fresh Water
Comments: Always thought making your own tapered leaders was time consuming and wouldn't be as strong as a manufactured tapered leader. I was wrong in both cases. With this material and a blood knot tool, it doesn't get any easier. Will end up saving well over a $150.00 making my own and produce twice as many with this material. I can change tippet strenghts as needed right on the stream.
