I want to buy a few of these but not sure which to buy.
I want to buy 14" but not sure what strength.
100 lb or 130 lb?

Can muskie cut through one of these?

The one you were using at the tourney was a 130lb. I've got bitten off on 80lb and the only thing I trust any more are the 130lb. Just my two cents. Later

I also use the 130# stealth flouro leaders and have had no problems with them breaking. On the 14" leaders, I like to downsize the stringease snap from the biggest one that comes on them to the medium size snap. The only downside to using these leaders in my opinion is they are not as good at clearing weeds as straight wire.

I've been using Stealth and like them but 2 nine inch leaders for $15 is steep. I'm about to buy more but I see Thorne Bros has 15" 130 lb Flouro's for $4.49 a piece so I can get 3 for the same price.

Anyone use the Thorne Bros flouro leaders? Any good or bad comments on them let me know. Hard to tell of the barrel and snaps are as good or not.

Thanks

Hey mike that's the reason I make my own leaders now much cheaper.in my opinion there's no problem throwing steel.the only thing I throw floro on is my bulldawgs an I use stealth.
