Rio takes the cake

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I always have a 3 pack just in case. A great tapered leader, with a strong loop. I prefer 9ft lenghts in 5x for western fishing on my 3 and 5 wt.

So easy and strong

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I love this leader I haven't had it snap on me and it was so easy to take out of the package and attached to my line. Honestly this is great for beginners and advanced fishers.

my go to

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is my leader of choice. Not nearly as expensive as flouro, and depending on your application this might be the leader you want to go with. Never snapped on me (unless it was user error). Also very easy to take out of the package and use immediately, meaning it's simple to straighten out. Been using this product for 4 years, consistently, and never been dissapointed.

Top notch

I have found RI0 to be my favorite leader. More accurate casting and no fuss. The 3-pack makes it easy to ensure you always have an extra.

Count me in

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

...on the 5-star band wagon. I've found these to have less line memory than some of the other leader brands I've tried. Usually one pass through the leader straightener and you're set (if they've been rolled up again).

Easy to Use Leader

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Preformed loops at the end of the leader helps in attaching it to a fly line (if there are loops on that end as well). Less coil memory makes it easier to unroll.

A Fine Leader!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Everything you could ask for in a leader! With preformed loops it is easy to attach to your fly line! I have the 7.5ft and 9.0ft for creeks and rivers accordingly. Seem super easy to unroll. I have not used anything else so I am not used to other issues with leader. I attached this tippet to this leader:

The Best All-Pupose Leader

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Easy to unroll, Easy to attach. The taper to this leader allows it to be used for multiple purposes and does not connect debris/ weeds like knotted leaders. Easily attach a smaller tippet with a blood not when presenting your smaller flies.

Works as intended

They work just as well as all the other tapered leaders that I've used, but they do seem to be easier to "unroll" when you first take them out of the package. My Orvis leaders would always tangle up, but the Rio ones have so far been much easier.

perform well

low line memory and strong. I also like the preformed loops at the ends that always seem very convenient when attaching to your fly line.
