Anyone use these? Go through the guides very easy. Way beeter and easier than loop tp loop nad the Nail knot.

Yes, Kevin loves them...and so do several other fly anglers I know, but I stick with the tried-and-proven nail knot. Personally, I don't like leader links because you get a hinge effect when you cast. A loop-to-loop connection also gives you something of the same hinge effect, but it's not as pronounced. But leader links are convenient and if they work for you, go for it!

Kevin has a book coming out next year.

Keep an eye peeled for it.

It will definitely be worth purchasing.

I knew he was working on one the past several years, but I didn't know what its time table was...definitely worth purchasing, Kevin's one of the best writers I know.
