Great leaders -
By: Beargonefishing from Washington DC
Use these any time I fish a sub surface fly or if fish are particularly picky. Invisible in water and super strong. I always carry these and the tippet.
Depenable Leaders -

sometimes people balk at buying better quality items. Lose a big Rainbow. I have tried others but not any more. Mirage Leaders are all that I will ever use. RJ
Excellent leaders -

You pay a little more for mirage but the quality is worth it... flurocarbon holds up better.
Mirage Trout Leader -
By: Swearengen from Connecticut
I don't buy anything but the Mirage Leaders. When something works as well as this, it would be nothing less than foolish to add an inconsistent variable to my fly-fishing. They are too expensive, they are rarely on sale, but they are tried and true. I refuse to waste my time and lose a fine catch due to using something inferior.
Fish can not see this mirage -
By: ZachB from Louisville, Kentucky
This stuff is insane. Has great tensile strength yet very supple. Also can go up a size from normal since it is so clear under water. It's great on them light weight fly rods.
Fleurocarbon v. Nylon -
By: DMOP from Kettering
These leaders turn over beautifully on my 1 weight superfine touch and a hydros 1 line. However, having only used fleurocarbon for tippet before I didn't realise it sinks and mucilin does not keep it afloat! So great for nymph and wets but not for dries - my personal choice! So good product as usual - my fault in choosing the wrong product!
Only leader I'll ever use for trout! -

After reading online a few years back about the best fluoro leader and tippet, I was directed towards Mirage. Thought I'd give it a try and bought a few leaders and a few spools of tippet. The leaders are fantastic, and along with being very strong for it's diameter, it has the stretch needed for when a huge landlocked or steelhead in VT explodes after a hookset. To be honest, I think the lb test on the leaders are MUCH higher than what it says on the packet. The 4X feels stronger than any 6 lb line I've ever used. Overall a perfect leader.
Best leader for streamer fishing -
By: Paolino from Mantova - ITA
An excellent leader; butt, taper and tip well designed as lengths and diameters. Camouflage suitable for salt and freshwater streamer fishing. To be improved the loop end of the butt (it would be better to use a "perfect loop" knot). Excellent resistance to breakage and abrasion. Very good quality vs price ratio.
