The same quick and easy-to-use wind-on leaders but with fluorocarbons instead of monofilament. Offshore Angler™ still use the Spectra® Fiber Braid for making the loops. The great advantage of fluorocarbon over mono is the fluorocarbon is closer to water in its light-refracting properties, therefore less visible in the water. Fluorocarbon also sinks twice as fast as mono. Leaders are 25 feet long.
Just as good as some of the more expensive wind on's.

I waited several years after my purchase to be able to write an accurate review. I have used these leaders to jig up gag grouper, mangrove snapper, red snapper, and decent sized amberjack and have never had a failure. I tie a bimini on my braided line, connect the two loops, and just tie the jig directly to my wind on leader. I have used the heavier sizes to fish live baits for big grouper with no problems.

The #1 rated line to leader connection for big game trolling (and if it works here it will work for anything else) is as follows: (1) double your main line using the 12 turn Bimini twist (applies for both mono and braid); (2) attach leader to doubled line using the "no-name" or Bristol knot; (3) if you are connecting mono of fluoro to a mono main line, then use five turns to form the no-name or Bristol; (4) if you are connecting fluoro or mono to a braid main line, then use 12 turns to form the no-name or Bristol knot.
