Berkley® Big Game® Monofilament Leader
Great, cheap leader
I use the 150lb leader when i fish from the shore in the keys. You never quite know what your gonna get down here. Could be a tarpon, blacktip, nursie, cuda or sometimes a grouper. Using this leader, i can be pretty sure that if i hook a small-medium sized blacktip, or even a big cuda, they arent gunna break me off. But at the same time, im not using wire which the tarpon will shy away from. All around, it ties knots great, its very cheap and its very hard to see underwater, also doesnt fray easily. Would highly recomend if you want to buy cheap, high quality leader in bulk.

Good fluoro replacement
I really get tired of paying preposterous fluorocarbon leader prices. I still use fluoro, but for 60-100 pound leaders for deep dropping to amberjack and red snaper, I have mostly switched to this mono leader, using 4-5 feet below egg sinkers. I can't see any difference from the fluoro for these kinds of fish, and it's really nice to ditch a frayed leader or tie on a longer one without looking at the spool and sweating out how much I have left and the ridiculous price it's gonig to cost to replace it. I still use fluoro for trolling plugs or lining out bait for tuna, but am even wondering about that.

Good Inexpensive Leader
This is a good inexpensive leader for the money. I've been tying my own rigs for many years now and for the money, I think this is definitely a bargain.
My only suggestion is, make sure you don't need it right away. It took almost 2 weeks to get to my house. I've had items form China that got here faster.
