I use this leader for trolling inshore on some of the farther out locations (20 to 40 miles) off of OC, MD where I stand a chance of hooking up something larger. I have not had a leader failure with this brand.

I use the 80# to splice my top shots. I'd give it 5 stars if it was packaged on a spool. It can be a pain to uncoil if you're not careful. I wish it was offered in high viz colors for trolling top shot applications.
ProsGood, strong line
ConsPain to uncoil

I have used this leader for bluefin tuna fishing. It is thinner than most leader but still very tough. Easily handled 100 lbs bluefin tuna.
ProsThinner diameter but tough.
Great for billfish leaders

I have used them all but always find Jenkai best. The 250 leader is small diameter and I use this for the big Blue Marlin and never have a problem with leader.

I used this leader for both top shot and smelling my hooks up. First, i use this 50lb leader for blackfishing, i found as a top shot it was great. Easy to splice, line isn't bulky for 50, rolls through guides nicely, flexible - not that real stiffness feel alot of leaders give, abrasion resistant. I love the stretch, just the right amount for what i like, but as for the leader smelled to the hook. I didn't care for it. I found if the current was running strong, due to a lighter feel for a heavier line (perhaps), my crab was pigtailing my hook. For jigging, i love this line, but bait Fishing where im exposing it sitting still in the current - it didn't work. I'll continue to use as a top shot though Fyi- tog fishing in currents where 8-10oz are needed, half crab or whole crab on single hook rig, this was an issue just a few times
ProsFlexible Casts beautifully Knots easier than anything else I've used Abrasion resistant
good quality at a good price.

Just what I needed to tie up my own rigs. Worked out great and no failures due to poor quality.

The Jinkai 100lb. leader coils would work well and be the thinnest diameter 100lb. we carry.
