Solid Wire Steel Leaders
 

Some years ago, I became frustrated with the unavailability of leaders in the sizes and configurations that I felt best complimented the lures that I was casting. I did a little research and acquired a leader making tool and began to make my own.

I have put together 3 different  leader packages of 3 hand made leaders.

The leaders are designed to compliment different lure types. Each leader uses .029 gauge 174 pound test brown stainless steel solid wire and a Duo-loc clasp.

The Duo-loc clasp is used for its ease of use with surface lures, like Hawg Wobblers and some jerk and crank baits.


7 Inch Leader Package

The 7 inch leader package contains 3 leaders. They are designed to compliment surface lures. The shorter length allows the surface lure to develop good retrieve action. Two of the leaders in the package are without swivels. The reason for this is related to the fact that surface lures should not be rolling in circles as they are retrieved. One of the leaders is equipped with a ball bearing swivel…it has been my experience that some lures, like creepers, tend to roll during the cast before they hit the water. This twisting is transferred to your line and can, over time, cause backlashes.

The price of the 7 inch leader package is only $5.00

9 Inch Leader Package

The 9 inch leader package contains 3 leaders. They are designed to compliment bucktails and down sized crank or twitch baits. This package of 3 leaders has ball bearing swivels on 2 of the leaders. The reason for this is related to the fact that most bucktails will roll as they are retrieved. This twisting is transferred to your line and can, over time, cause backlashes. Crank or twitch baits should not twist during the retrieve and therefore do not need a swivel on the leader.

The price of the 9 inch leader package is only $5.00.

11 Inch Leader Package

The 11 inch leader package contains 3 leaders. They are designed for use with jerk and larger crank or twitch baits. These leaders do not have swivels. The reason for this is related to the fact that swivels will tend to diminish the direct transfer of power from the line to the lure during the retrieve. These leaders will work very well with Jumping Jackpots, Mantas, Reef Hawgs, Suicks and most other twitch/Jerk/glide baits.

The price of the 11 inch leader package is only $5.00.
