Great leaders ARE made!, June 26, 2012
Bob Loblaw (Texas)
These are fantastic leaders but people should realize that they are not made of fluorocarbon. Rather, these are just plain ol' mono filament so you may want to tie on a small fluorocarbon tippet on the end of it in order to help with presentation. I have also found that the fluorocarbon tippets reduce breakage and keep you from embarrassingly sending your flies flying off into the distance or breaking them off on the sapling behind you. What I do is feel the leader up to the point where it begins to thicken, at that point I cut the leader, tie a perfection loop and attach my fluorocarbon tippet.

everything you expect from a quality leader, September 7, 2011
First time I've used the SA knotless leader and I loved it. It lays out nice and does everything I want in a trout leader. Good product for reasonable price. I plan to continue to use them.

Decent inexpensive flyline leader, April 22, 2013

They work fine. There is no prettied loop on the butt end. Have to be careful unwinding it or it becomes tangled.
