Thanks for buying a set of the 6ft leaders. I don't believe you have an older set or anything.
I am looking at my set here and have the 5 leaders, of which the clear one does not have a color coded sleeve, nor does the 7.0 ips.. we call it black, just because the tungsten is so dark. Of the other three, there should be the green, red and blue sleeves. The 5.6 does have a very dark blue sleeve - a kind of midnight blue, which could be easier to see, for sure. The green and red are a little more identifiable in color. We could certainly make the colors easier to identify and will probably do that in the far future - once we have used the hundreds of feet of colored tubing we currently have!
The front end of the leaders should be bare and with no loop.. that is so you can tie a perfection loop, or attach the tippet directly - according to your preferance.
As to the weight.. we aim for 45 grains, but it is impossible to be that accurate in tolerance, + or - 10 grains is acceptable for us.
I hope that helps, and thanks again for buying a set. I hope you catch some good fish on them!
Always dreaming of that perfect cast.....
