Great leaders for toothy fish. I use them for pike, musky, cuda, or any other large predator fish with teeth. I really like the version with the snap - makes changing flies quick and easy and most predator fish don’t care that it’s there.

Used for some barracuda that were snapping up my bone flies. It did its job and I was able to keep reusing!

These work very well for pike and other toothy fish. Nice to not have to worry about adding separate tippet or other material. Like all these types of leaders, once you cut down to a certain point on the leader, they are great for adding tippet.

This leader works perfectly and makes it super easy to change out flies. I recommend highly. No problems.

Well designed. The wire tippet ties good knots with ease. Easy to use.
