the shock leader is just that,a shock leader.... braided line has NO give to it,a 6' section of shock leader is the perfect length,it gives just the right amount of stretch,allows for casting without having to get the knot off of the spool and also give the fishfinder a smooth surface to run on,it also is the portion of the line that takes the most abuse...which would you rather cut back after each trip, 6' of mono shock leader or 6' of high priced braid...
