Offshore Angler Mini Double Sleeves
these work great. i use heavy mono for blue cats and knots can be a problem. not anymore with these crimp sleeves. slide on and pop with the crimper and your ready to fight the big boys. i caught a 59 lb my first trip out with them and they performed flawlessly.

I love these crimps. They don't corrode wire, they are great for heavy mono and you can crimp them just about any way, but they will still work

Need smaller Mini Double Sleeves!
I have been using these mini sleeves to make all my leaders for a long time all around South Florida. Changing from copper to brass was a good move by Offshore Angler (Bass Pro Shops), no corrosion. There's one other good move that could be made--smaller sleeves. The current offering of .8mm provides for 60 lb mono. I like to use fluorocarbon leader from 30 to 50 lb. The advantage of fluorocarbon is its invisibility. Smaller sleeves would provide less visibility and less area to snag on grass or cover. How about it Bass Pro Shops--OFFER SMALLER SLEEVES!

After trying several different brands of sleeves I have determined that these are the best out there for most purposes. I use them with different brands of nylon coated wire and mono leader and they work great with both. The sizes stated for the coated wire are off for some brands so they will actually work for lower lb test coated wire than what they recommend. For example I use the 1.3 mm for 60 lb nylon coated wire in some brands. I have caught sailfish to pinfish using these sleeves.
