good stuff -
By: breakaway from Tulsa, OK
10' 16# on 8 wt., 10# -15# tippet. Turns over striper flies in windy conditions. fished mostly in very rough rocky river bottom. Long lasting. Not prone to wind knots. Low memory. No complaints. Please don't ever discontinue.

Awesome durability and wear resistance. I used these all summer on freshwater game fish with excellent longevity.
Great tippet -
By: Quarfy from Amherst, NY
I find this tippet works great in the rocky bottom fast water of the lower Niagara River. This is a most challenging test for a leader and tippet. The abrasion resistant product from Orvis is a must in these challenging environments.
Worst leader for Salmon -
By: Maure from Sept-Iles, Quebec,Canada
Strength OK- all other features poor. Too limp-remains curled once the fly is tied on. Difficult to use any good salmon knot. Impossible to thread and tie a # 10 or smaller atlantic salmon fly at dusk due to lack of color. Lost 2 nice salmon with this leader
Great line -
By: RetiredSteelheader from Albany, NY
Leader and tippet was easy to handle, tied effectively, and handled well with casts. Strong effective line that performed well in challenging conditions.
AR+ Really Held Up... -

I put a new AR+ Leader and 30" of AR Tippet on last Thursday morning and fished 3 days on the Bois Brule in Northern Wisconsin for Steelhead, Salmon and Spawning Browns. I lost 3 flies all weekend and believe me, they were stuck! Breaking this line off was not easy, at times I would get my fly back with the hook bent before the leader or tippet broke. Good Stuff
Another great Orvis product -

I grabbed a few of these earlier in the year for targeting pike for the first time on flies. I noticed right away the leaders were very tough and harder to cut through than my normal SS and Mirage leaders. I lost every pike I had, but not because of my leader failing..just bad hooksets! Overall a great toothy critter leader for a great price. Will just have to see how it holds up to some big fish in the future.
AR Laeder and Tippet -

Excellent material, as a newbi to fly fishing all help from store and live chat very helpful. After reading articles on leaders and tibbit material "Orvis" is the leader on quality and stands behind product.
