This man from Spain is talking about Cortland Toothy Critter leader. Bass Pro doesn't sell it. It's a nylon coated steel leader that is still supple and can be tied to other line or lures with normal fishing knots. I use it with the swim baits for bass when I'm in Pike water. I tie it to my Spider Wire Stealth main line usually 20 or 30 lb. with a double Uni knot. I give myself about a 18 to 24 inch leader of the Toothy Critter usually 15 to 20 lb. It doesn't interfere with the action.

much less a mix of steel and nylon more so braided fibers similar to kevlar and carbon fiber. there are a variety of brands but Spiderwire is the big name here in the U.S.

It is called braided line in the US. It is designed for the primary line from the reel NOT for leader material. I would suggest a heavy mono attached to the braid for your leader 60 to 120# test. Use a UNI knot to attach to the braid.

Here it is called braided line, and no it does not have steel wire in it. It is like an extremely strong, very limp string. it is also very hard to cut with scissors, unless they are really sharp.
