Default Power pro question

When you use power pro, do you all use a mono leader or do you just for go the leader all together ?? Ill be fishing for Reds and Specks in the yak. Thanks in advance.

I tie a very long fluoro leader when fishing for reds and specks. I like a 5-6ft length of 15-20lb Fluoro. I also like to connect the two using a double uni knot.

I do fine just tying straight to the PP. although I do alot of sightfishing. Can't hurt to have a lil flourocarbon if conditions call for it like clear water and noticeably finicky fish, say followers and short strikes.

I do the same as Brad long leader except I use a Albright knot to connect.

I use 15 lb seagar flouro for everything but top water. If I'm fishing in the upper bays I use a 3-4 ft leader. If I'm fishing in the sound or big Lagoon I would use about a 5-6 ft. leader. I connect my 10 lb braid with an Alberto knot. I have tried several other knots but the Alberto has been my favorite. The double uni and Yucatan knots have also worked well for me.

For topwater I use a short mono leader and connect with an Albero knot.

how on earth do you cast that bulky knot through your guides and not lose distance or cause wind knots? i use a floro leader to but only about 2-2.5 feet in length. short enough for the knot to be outside of the rod tip for casting

That's the reason for small knots such as Double Uni / Albright. They are small enough connections that you never notice them through the Guides. 10lb braid to 15lb leader is a tiny tiny connection!!
