mark wrote:up untill recently i've always been against leaders of any kind but these days i fail to see the difference between a leader and 15lb+ mainline. if a fish was trailing 6ft of 15lb line and it got tangled in a snag i doubt it could break it free and if it did manage to it would still damage itself very badly when you consider the force it takes to snap 15lb line

Could not agree more Mark I use leaders they can also prevent the line from cutting into the fish and flicking of scales.

As I said to a man a few months back when he was moaning about my leader as I was unhooking a fish the other month. If you are that concerned about fish safety, why fish? just give it up or stick to pole fishing with 2lb line. All leads have an edge of danger but as you say Mark so is any line over 6lb. lets face it most modern lines break well over there stated setting so who knows.

We as anglers just need to make things as safe as humanly possible.

i would think a leader would cause less harm than a line would you lads agree then?

hahaha there isn't a strait yes or no answer is there. when playing a fish i'd say its probably better but when a fish breaks off then your geuss is as good as mine. in some cases it mite not make any difference but when you see pictures of dead carp all tangled up in leaders you can't help but think otherwise

i think if you try your best to make the most of what you,ve got, and put into practice what people around you have taught you and learnt, then there every chance the fish will survive should any problem occour,,,

the more i think about it the more im swaying to line being more of a de scaler due to the thickness in diameter on the korda leaders. id say a leadcore leader could make a mess of a fish now but like you say who knows what happens when the unthinkable happens affraid

i think tubing is as fish friendly as you can get on both the fight and incase of a break off but even so the fish will still have fairly haevy mainline to deal with

your probably right there mark allthough i like the idea of the leader being designed to sit as close to the bottom i feel it would give better presentation allthough i could be wrong u have me thinking now im going to make a new prototype as well and try them both Wink

the thing i've noticed with leaders is they twist along with ya mainline where as tubing, especially tungsten tubing doesn't and it lays perfectly flat. flourocarbon leaders do dissapear in water though and i add a bit of putty every 6" to help pin it down.

take a look at Freefall Rig Tube by Rig Marole incorporates a stainless steel coiled wire inner to create a base tube which has been coated in silicone.
What you get is a length of tube that is really supple and super-heavy, more even than most leadcores available - It just hugs the lakebed.
The tubing is also incrdibly easy to thread, i gave some to Shane when we fished Bluebells its good stuff but not cheap
