What Pound Leader Should I Use?

Recommended Posts

I have a 20 lb braid on my baitcaster. I was wondering what size leader should I use. I feel pretty confident with 20lb braid and haven't had any snapped lines. (knock on wood) I bought previously a 17lb flurocarbon line and I'm wondering if that is too heavy with the 20lb braid. Also if I should use monofilament or fluorocarbon as a leader with my braid.

 

 

 

 

Thanks a lot

I like 10lb Fluoro as my leader material. I use the Sufix and have been really happy with it.

It depends on what the application that setup is going to be used for. I would use if it was my set up, 12lb.-15lb  Yozuri max.

Depends on what kind of fishing your doing, on a baitcaster it would be anywhere from 8-12lb leaders for me.

For me, between 6-15lb.

 

The thicker the leader, the bigger the knot to go thru your top guide. FWIW...

 

I have used 50 lb mono leader when striper fishing on my Daiwa Lexa.
