Tom,

Having madeseveeral thousand furled leaders I can not imagine making tapered furled leader out of 25 # mono. Perhaps you are confusing it with a twisted leader which is a completely different process. The tip of a typical furled leader will end in 6 strands (although heavier tips can be made). Using 25# mono would make an extremely heavy, stiff leader with a tip end breaking strength in excess of 150 pounds.
