    Has anyone used this leader,is it any good? I have always used seaguar. It seems to be good but if a person could save a few bucks that would be alright too.

    I switched to Yo back in the spring and haven't missed a beat. I like it, it seems to be more plyable. I also don't like the new seguar. For deep water I just use regular Ande mono, and it does just fine and is way cheaper.

    i use yozuri of all of my floro under 50 lbs. i love it. i havent used the heavier stuff just because i have never seen it around. i actually found a lot of the smaller poundage for cheap and bought it all!

    I am going to use regular ANDE 80/100 test mono on my next trip to test differences. Last trip I had blackwater FC and fisherman stealth and noticed no difference in bites. If I notice no bite you can sure bet I will change leader. =)

    It might be softer in lighter line but I use it in 200 and 300 pound and find it to be much stiffer than seaguar.
    Also had a friend use it for chunking and side by side the seaguar got alot more action, so much more that he switched half way through the night.

    A couple weeks ago on the "Big E" I used an 80# Yozuri HyBrid Fluorocarbon wind-on that I got from JAK in Kona. After a few hours of jigging it developed a terrible curl in it that was so bad it was difficult to tie knots in it.

    The bad news is, I have five more of them. I'm going back to Momoi Diamond wind-ons.

    i like the fisherman stealth leader. it is not fluorocarbon so it is much cheaper. it is so soft, tying a knot with 130lb is no problem.

    that being said, if i were going to jig or pop for tuna in the daytime, I would probably use FC.

    the only time during the night i'd use FC is if i was baitfishing. for jigging and popping at night i don't think it really gives much of an advantage. i dont think its a disadvantage at all, but the difference is price is pretty substantial. plus i'm not skilled enough with knots to tie 80+lb fluorocarbon very well!

    Great product and in the 100 yard spools it is a sweet deal. We use the 20lb inshore and 50lb & 80lb offshore.

    Good price at Angler Systems. I bought a 100 yards of yozuri pink. Went on a charter with Capt. William Wall out of Grand Isle 4 tuna and that is what he uses.
