Last two days was 90-95 ft rigger in 150-180 fow with Ron's Morning Wood behind a white green dot spin doctor running the hottest. Lots of broken leaders from Atomik- which i have never seen before. Is anyone else experiencing this? Pretty sure we are up to 7!

Been very frustrated with break offs with Attomiks this year, I hope this can be corrected, way to many quality fish lost.

The hook ups are second to none, great product just hope somebody can look into changing the leader, i would personally rather pay a little more than keep losing fish.

40-50 lb MONO is the way to go with flies not fluoro you need "give" with the hardware and it's down deep so visibility isn't relevant and the stiffness thing is overrated. Fluoro often breaks at the knot itself because it is "brittle". Many big kings have succumbed to mono in the past.....I know in advance that many die hard fluoro fans will probably have "fits" about this comment and I use fluoro too but I don't think it is the best material for the fly application.

This is Something I never really thought of since they come in the package with fluoro. I've never had one break unless the drag was set too tight with a screamer on, but I suppose the mono would give me some room for error.

@mailtime26

Deeper depth can run 5 to 12 ft behind the ball - depending on how they like it. takes a little experimentation each time.

Many of us switched from mono to Floro Leader material years ago mainly to stop the bite offs on meat rigs. It was a near 100% success though the material was pricey.
