    I've played a little with splicing different length furled leaders together to make tenkara lines with different tapers. They worked wonderful as I could go from a level section rig into a tapered tip. I only wish I had kept better records of the number of windings.

    I furl out to 15 feet. The reason I stop there is that's all the room I have in my laboratory been playing with furled level lines for Tenkara lately.

    Thanks guys been doing a lot of reading n looks as though level floro is the way to go with either amnesia or glow nail knots for sight indicators.. why so many feel that full hi vis lines are so important is beyond me...

    I go up to 20', but that's a Super long set up. I do prefer bright colors and had some thread specially dyed for them.

    I can buy over 300 different colors from my supplier. Why bother with the custom stuff?
