Default The Right Leaders?

I wanted to try Orvis Mirage, but I'm not sure if I should use Super Strong or Hy Float in the park. I need to place an order quickly vacation starts April 18th...

Help,
Brett

I have fished Super Strong for 6 years, and it is a hard habit to break...works for me. I have been told that one needs to be fishing flouro on the tailwaters. Most that i have talked to like the Mirage. I have been tempted but have not give in to it yet.

Have tried all 3. Super Strong is my preference for leaders. Tippet material will be dependant on what I'm doing. Super Strong for up top and Mirage for dropper rigs, wets, and such. Was intrigued by the Hy-Flote leaders and tried them. And they are correct in that they will float all day. Can't sink them. IMHO only 2 drawbacks are; they sparkle and are very visible due to the 'flote' design and I'm not sure if that's such a good thing, and they seem to cast funny - wierd funny. Won't roll out the way I thought leaders were supposed to. Now, to be fair, there's always a good chance that that could be the fisherman and not the leader. Don't know if that helps but have fun.
