    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Save gear on blues I have used these a few times now. They are very simple to use and don't change the presentation much. I like the 4" on deceivers and clousers, 8" on poppers. I would go for the heavier ones if your going for big bluefish. I have had a few cut right through the 35#.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from neat! These are pretty creative. I got some to try out for the smaller pike flies on the 8wt. Easy set-up!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Watch out for Teeth with this I bought these for some pike, muskie, and bluefish. I have to say they are the easiest wire leaders I've ever used fly fishing. Quick-change, and tough. 5/5 would reccomend

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Wire Leader We absolutely love this wire leader. It's so rugged, but so thin, and it's very easy to use. We use this leader when fishing for Ono (Wahoo) and other toothy critters in Hawaii. One thing we wish is if it could be made in a higher pound test. 80-90 pound test would be ideal.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Product I've used these 'haywire' leaders for casting to big, toothy northerns in northern Canada for years...at the end of the week they are usually twisted, kinked and look terrible (badge of courage and durability!), but I've never lost a fly when using them. yes plastic sleeve is probably the weakest point of the entire rig, but carefully rewrapping the wire after several casts when the sleeve is gone works just fine. Quick changing of flies is a real benefit...not having to retie wire leader saves lots of time!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Work well This work as described. They make changing flies very easy. Only negative is a little difficult to get untwisted.
