Same with me, i'm using the 50lb vanish for leaders and i have yet to run into any trouble, knots have all held up and i have been out alot...While its not my favorite leader brand it does the job.Well no wonder why, pugs are heavy man, you shouldn't be using those things as bait. LOL, just bustin cajones mang. I've been using the 40 lb. Vanish for my leaders this year and havent had a problem yet....maybe by the luck of the draw I got the one good strand off the shelf????
