I wanted to see how this blue label Seaguar Fluorocarbon leader I bought recently tied up. Uni-knot to my 50lb power pro was good, and what I have seen with fluorocarbon leader is its very hard and tough, which is why I like it over just the mono leader line. You just need to be very aware that as you finish up the knots with this hard leader, it can burn and/or Gaul just as you pull the knot tight.

So, with a little spit on it and my practice hook I snelled up this knot and pulled up tight, didn't seem to be all burned or Gaul up and this 50lb fluorocarbon leader as mentioned is really hard line. I just have way to much fun with my different rigging and knots, but if I can get this pic to post

Picture doesn't work but I understand what you're saying. I enjoy rigging but hate tying heavy weight fluorocarbon. My heaviest stuff is 30# mono.

Then I branched out and now mess around with wire leaders (20# test, stainless cable).

Man I had a software upgrade hit my phone and it has been a dooozie to say the least. This thing has my phone all jacked up. I got a pic of some of it, but not able to crop the pic like I would. After a point, you can stick me with a fork, as I am done for now lol... Never had trouble before. I will mess with this later.
