Thanks for pulling this out of the archives and assisting my foray into leader construction. etc.
I have the Maxima materials that I lacked on order and will be diving in soon. I did make up one of the long Smith wet fly leaders and fished with it yesterday. It seemed to me that it tended to sink a bit more than a knotless leader. I fished it with a 10'6" rod and two flies. I was able to make my usual snake roll casts and snap t casts with the long leader. I did have a pretty good downstream wind to deal with and that at time made accuracy a challenge. I plan to tie those leaders that you put in your earlier posts (custom leaders).
