Braided mono loops attach to fly line via a simple loop-to-loop connection. Floating Leader Connector will not weigh the front end of the fly line down, so leader stays on top of the water. Heat shrink included.

loop connectors great for connecting leaders or sink tips, my advice is to NOT do what I did and use a lighter to shrink the tubing, as I melted the loop connector and had to buy more, heat up a kettle of water to boiling and then pour it over the shrink tubing, it'll be hot enough to shrink the tubing but not enough to damage the loop.

Floating Leader Connectors I have used these for the last few trips and find them to be very user friendly. They also float better than a tied leader/tippet. I used a 100 watt light bulb to adhere the connector and it worked really well. The Bass Pro Shop pro said that he had used a light bulb with success. You just connect the pieces and gently roll it on the light bulb until it melts. You can't pull it apart. September 4, 2006
some details about this product The boiling water method did not work for me. Light bulb method did but I used a 250 watt light and just rotated the shrink wrap very close to the bulb but not touching it. This product works well in terms of floating but it definitely weighs more than the connector I had prior. So if you like your line to slowly descend onto the water when casting you will definitely feel a difference that you may not care for. One last detail, the shrink connector has a tendency to catch on the guides when bringing a fish in which can be annoying. August 18, 2008
Read the directions... These installed with ease and they make attaching your leaders very, very easy. I ordered them despite the mixed reviews, but as I had expected, the problems that folks were having installing these had nothing to do with the product, but their ineptitude. The directions clearly state, at least on my package, that the heat shrink works at 230F. Seeing as how boiling water is only 212F, at sea level, that technique isn't going to work. I'm a carpenter and I used my heat gun. I had it set on 'low' and I started by holding it 12" away and slowly worked towards the heat. About 8-10 inches away, the heat shrink, shrank. I speculate and hair dryer on high would do the exact same thing. I didn't use the light bulb technique because all my bulbs are CFL's or LED's, neither of which get very warm. Read the directions, and you will not be unhappy. June 17, 2011

What is the difference?

Details: 
The "Select from Chart" lists 2 choices, but they are exactly the same. Both are "clear" and no size is listed. What is the difference? I need the connector for a size 5 line. Which should I choose? Thanks.
