Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product, needs attention I read all the reviews and agree a few things could be better ( the clasp& swivel, knots should be glued I have caught rooster fish up to 55-60 lbs., yellowtail 50-60 lbs., king mackerel, spanish macks, dorado,red snapper 25lb range, wahoo,etc. I was the only guy who wasn't loosing flies or fish. Often I used the same pred. poly all day.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Snap Link is Hard to Use The Leader held up on a Bluefish Day, but the Snap Link to change flies was very difficult to use. The wire did seem to cause occasional refusals. "Knotable" wire is a better option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Living in Indiana and it is winter, I have not had a chance to use it yet. It looks like what I need and I have ordered another one in case this one gets damaged by a big fish!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK, but not the best! I was somewhat wary at purchasing this leader due to comments about the clasp (connection to fly) in other reviews. I tried it anyway and found out quickly that the clasp is indeed an overly complicated and poor design. It also does not have the strength for a large predator fish such as a pike or barracuda. The rest of the leader is quite good. I would buy this leader again but cut off the clasp and replace with a different style - probably saltwater stainless. This leader as designed will not hold up to a large fish - say 15 lbs or above.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Always excellent service and top shelf products I have been dealing with Orvis for the past 25 years (more or less!?). I have always been extremely pleased with the quality and workmanship of the Orvis line. When a problem has occured, the costumer service reps are on the spot, cordial, and resolve the issue without complications. A big Thank You is in order. ALLEN

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good Idea, but not functional I got one of these for my trip to Canada fishing for Pike. It was crazy how hard it is to work the tip where you attach the fly. You have to bend it exactly right and after a while you think when is this metal going to break. Then I got home and was using it a my local lake and went to put it on my 8wt and the metal end where you attach the fly had fallen off completely. I returned it to Orvis. They took it back and I used the credit to buy some more flies. It's a great concept, but a little work on the end of the line and this could be a good product.
