I usually vary the number of turns I do depending on the diameter of the line but have problems with stiff leader material. Anymore than 2 turns and I cannot get the knot to cinch down. Should I use a different knot?
I use penn leader material in 50 and 80, it is the best leader material i have ever used. its really supple and soft to work with and i can tie 4 twist improved and cinch them down perfectly, i would try it the stuff is awesome!
