These Furled Leaders, made of Uni-Thread, have a woven butt loop and there are two choices for the tippet end. A Shorb Loop (a small BB-size tippet loop) or a Tippet Ring. Strictly a matter of personal preferance ... The tippet ring version is most popular.
The Shorb Loop is small loop woven into the tippet end of the furled leader to which you attach your tippet with a very small loop-to-loop connection.
The Tippet Ring allows you to tie your tippet to a tiny, lightweight metal ring with the same knot you tie your fly on with.
Furled leaders are inexpensive in the long run. Many customers report a single furled leader lasting an entire fishing season (or two!) with just tippet changes. Compare that to the longevity of a regular tapered mono leader - no contest!
