Offshore Angler™ Fluorocarbon Wind-On Leaders
The same quick and easy-to-use wind-on leaders but with fluorocarbons instead of monofilament. They 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by wino good value Just as good as some of the more expensive wind on's. March 30, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Chico1 No Problems 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.

Details:just wondering what are the best knots to attach the loop to ur main line wether its mono or braid?
A:I tie a bimini loop in my braid, really not hard at all, just gotta do it several times.
A: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.
