Talon Poly.(polythene) Coated Leaders are available in 10' or 5 '
and come in 4 densities Floating (white) Intermediate (Grey) Sinking

The term Poly.Coated Leader as their name implies are leader systems
that vary in material composition, length (from 5 or10 feet), and sink
rates (from floating to 5 inches per second or ips). Talon Poly. coated
Leaders have a level core of monofilament and then a supple tapered
coating in a variety of densities for different presentations.
The purpose of tapering the leader is to store the energy from the fly
line on the forward cast and then dissipate that energy smoothly as the
cast unrolls and straightens before it settles on the waters surface.
The taper of the leader essentially becomes an extension of the forward
taper of the fly line to create the most accurate and efficient
presentation possible with the fly.
Hinge is virtually non-existent with tapered leaders. This creates
tighter loops that will defeat nearly any wind and can be used
effectively with all but the largest flies. In the case of the sinking
leaders, the taper also works to lessen drag and that allows the leader
and fly to sink deceptively fast within the water column. In many cases,
poly. coated leaders sink as fast or faster than level sinking line of
equal or slightly greater mass and density.
Talon Poly. Coated Leaders are looped either end for ease of use
Talon Poly. Coated Leader give a smoother and more efficient turnover in
most fishing conditions, greater accuracy, variety of use and
application, and efficient sinking properties
