Our Furled leaders are made with the highest quality monofilament, high quality tippet rings and micro swivels.
What make our furled leaders different?
- Our Furled leaders are made on a precision furling system that allows us to control all of the parameters that go into making a furled leader.
- We have spent years developing our formulas, working with professional guides and perfecting our furling machine, to get the best performing leader on the market.
- All of our leaders are made with 5 segments that give them a more uniform taper and better performance. These custom made tapered leaders are one continuous strand and made with only the best materials. We inspect and test all of our leaders before we ship.
- Our Leaders will not fray like leaders made with fly tying thread. We have all seen how the thread can fray on your flies with heavy use. Your line gets the same punishment on rocks and snags. Why risk losing a fish of a lifetime with a frayed thread leader.
- Shorb loops on both ends or tippet ring on the tippet end make attaching this leader to your fly line or tippet a breeze and saves time, giving you more time on the water.
Given the advantages and the fact that one leader can last all season makes our furled leaders a low cost option.
About Furled Leaders:
Furled leaders are a knotless tapered fly fishing leader made with several strands of material that are spun together (think tapered rope). They are known for their high performance, low memory and the ultimate in delicate presentations, making furled leaders are a great choice. Furled leaders aid in turning over your fly and these leaders lay out perfect every time. Furled leaders can also improve your roll cast. These leaders are stronger than other tapered leaders. Furled leaders work as a shock absorber that will help keep your fish from breaking off. Bottom line is that our furled leaders will help you cast and fish like a pro!
Unlike other tapered leaders you find in the stores, our leaders come with shorb loops on both ends or a tippet ring on the tippet end that allow you to change out the tippet when it gets too short. Don't throw away the leader; just replace the tippet by using a loop to loop connection. The final length will vary depending on the length of tippet that is added. (Typically 18 inches to 4 feet)
Good afternoon 😎
MDE Custom Furled Leaders
I apologise but because of a full schedule I have moved up Saturdays product review. So lets get started. A few weeks ago I came into contact with
MDE Designs. He sent an array of various leaders for our product review. Cadillac years ago started a campaign saying this was not your fathers caddy anymore. Well these leaders are definitely not either. The first thing that popped out to me was how clear, clean and thin these leaders are. It had been years since I have even considered using one. That thought process has now changed. Over the last week field testing I was shocked. The fluorocarbon leaders were in fact undetected even in gin clear water. They come in various lengths and wt.
3-9 wt along with a nymphing and streamer leaders. No need to bore anyone with specifics as these can be researched on their website which will be posted below. Their claims of durability are quite accurate. I tried to literally burn these leaders on wood and hot metal. It was unsuccessful. Leader memory is very low. Price for such a product seems very reasonable. With that being said I can highly recommend this product. It is also important to state that these reviews are totally unbiased with no payment of any kind. Simply just for us as the consumer .

I am a convert… these leaders perform well indeed… they turn over the tippet and they are easy to cast. I am truly impressed. I am about to order three more… and I am so pleased to have made your acquaintance. In any case, an order for three more furled leaders is coming. I did impress one of my friends with casting a furled leader… he too has never tried one and is likely to send in an order. Thanks for making my fishing more enjoyable. - Jim in sweltering hot Vermont
