The best leader

Good Leader for the Money
June 5, 2020
I use this leader for trolling inshore on some of the farther out locations (20 to 40 miles) off of OC, MD where I stand a chance of hooking up something larger. I have not had a leader failure with this brand.

Good line
March 22, 2020
I use the 80# to splice my top shots. I'd give it 5 stars if it was packaged on a spool. It can be a pain to uncoil if you're not careful. I wish it was offered in high viz colors for trolling top shot applications.
ProsGood, strong line
ConsPain to uncoil

Thinner diameter fishing line
August 21, 2019
I have used this leader for bluefin tuna fishing. It is thinner than most leader but still very tough. Easily handled 100 lbs bluefin tuna.
ProsThinner diameter but tough.

Great but...

I used this leader for both top shot and smelling my hooks up. First, i use this 50lb leader for blackfishing, i found as a top shot it was great. Easy to splice, line isn't bulky for 50, rolls through guides nicely, flexible - not that real stiffness feel alot of leaders give, abrasion resistant. I love the stretch, just the right amount for what i like, but as for the leader smelled to the hook. I didn't care for it. I found if the current was running strong, due to a lighter feel for a heavier line (perhaps), my crab was pigtailing my hook. For jigging, i love this line, but bait Fishing where im exposing it sitting still in the current - it didn't work. I'll continue to use as a top shot though Fyi- tog fishing in currents where 8-10oz are needed, half crab or whole crab on single hook rig, this was an issue just a few times
ProsFlexible Casts beautifully Knots easier than anything else I've used Abrasion resistant

This is some of the best leader material I have used. It is a good blend between some of the limper leader material out there and the harder materials, giving the best of both worlds.

This 500 pound mono is optically perfect which is indicative of the tight tolerances achieved within the manufacturing sequence. The quality is evident, and the fact that Jinkai makes precisely matched thimbles and sleeves is critical.

April 4, 2013
soft yet strong, suitable for heavy bottom applications, the thicker diameter is good for abrasion resistance (especially for coral fishing)
Prossoft but strong good abrasion resistance quality
By Hong G.
soft yet strong leader
April 4, 2013
diameter is slightly thicker than other brands, but for heavy bottom applications the thicker diameter will translate to a very welcomed increased resistance to abrasion reasonably strong and doesn't kink out that fast (probably also due to the thicker diameter)
Prossoft but strong thicker diameter = better abrasion resistance
