just curious, but why are Flourocarbon leaders used on the end of braid.. ive tried it a few times but got tired of retying new leaders every time. is it line shyness? line abrasion??? just wondering.. thanks in advance..

It’s used because of how expensive fluorocarbon is to braid. Some other reasons are because it sinks well and it’s invisibility.

It's what Lafae said. From another perspective, you get the stealthiness of fluoro and the performance of braid (no stretch, quick hooksets, abrasion resistance). This helps a lot in finesse, light bite situations.

2nd the above comments. I like it for the lack of visibility, plus it creates versatility in the rig. You can run 15 lb main line on the reel, fish straight braid, or add the leader and adjust all the way down to 4lbs for finesse if you want to.
