I was told about this system and had to try it and I am impressed. I highly recommend this leader.
A' cannot do without' piece of kit -

A wonderful braided leader both for dry/nymph fishing. Well made and if cared for after each trip can last up to 3 seasons. It is very limp, floats well, and turns a fly/tippet over really well. I use it for mainly river fishing, but it is equally home on still waters/reservoirs. PLEASE do not stop making them, they are my lifeline to a good days fishing.
Quality leader; overpriced package -
By: FredSanford from Western NC
The Orvis braided leaders have always been my favorite. They last long, and my casting is not as consistently accurate with other leaders. The packaging with bimini tippets on a spool is a racket that drives the price of these up. I would be more enthusiastic if I could buy what I need for less and leave the pricey tippets behind.
Very Nice Product -

Turns over well, easy pick up and almost invisible in water. No knot system is especially nice when working with beginners.

I'm not used to the braided stuff, nor this kind of setup, but it works great regardless.
Use this and you'll never go back -

There are a lot of people making furled leaders the ones from orvis last several seasons.. Use one of these and start catching fish.
Nice leaders but better without tippets -
By: Josh8947 from Fort Collins, CO
I really like these braided leaders. I've used them for many years. However, I'm not a big fan of the bimini tippets. I'd rather just tie some regular tippet material to the end of the leader. Orvis has recently decided to add more bimini tippets to the package. I would rather have them taken out completely so that I can choose to only pay for the leaders without paying for the tippet material.
Memory-free & Long-lasting leader -

I have been using Orvis floating braided leaders for several years and I wouldn't use anything else. Instead of replacing my leader after a few outings, this leader lasts for a season. My only complaint is that they do not come in longer lengths.
Great Leader and Tippet for Dries -

I have used braided leaders and bimini tippets exclusively for dries, since Orvis introduced the system a couple of years ago. This is a great product that improves my presentation. The braided section is durable and changing between tippet sizes is easy with the loop-to-loop connections.
