Leaders are not just used for visibility, the main reason i use a leader (either mono or fluoro) tied to my braid is to provide some kind of shock absorber. the x-fast rods they have out these days, paired with braid there is no give, and beileve me something is going to give. ive seen way to many guys snap rods and tear big holes in mouths that has resulted in lost fish from using straight braid

Time to start testing the fisherman for PEDs

It takes very little effort to set a hook with braid. A quick jerk is all it takes. I know those full tilt hook sets look cool but its not needed. Snapping rods or ripping the fishes mouth is operator error not a rod or braid problem.
