why would using it with a reg mono leader or clear poly leader be any problem? i read this post this morning and tried it this afternoon with my standard leader and it worked great. the line seemed to act like any other line on the water. the leader sank and the line mostly floated and things were as they should be. i also tried a 12 ft intermidiate rio poly leader and that was very nice as well. can someone explain why it wouldn't work as a floater?

that line may be a bit heavy for that rod. i just cast it a bunch on the 1307 and it loads up real well. if it's not too heavy it will make a killer small stream outfit. the line turns over weight amazingly well, and i don't know beans about skagit casting. single and double spey were easy in close at the line jct. anything longer and it is essentially a shooting head. it should fit in nicely for the GL streams where short casts with a fair amount of weight are the norm.
