yes and no, mainly yes

I do the same thing that you do, and end up buying 300yds of p-line flourocarbon, and tie my own leaders with it. The little spools of tippet can be pretty handy out on the water though. Most people whom I've talked about this say that the leader spools in general are higher quality, but as long as the line you are using is of high quality, I think it makes no difference. While high quality flourocarbons and such may cost $7-$10, compared to those 30yd tippet spools your'e getting a tremendous value. Plus the large spools can easily last a season or two, unless you fish like me and change flies every 3 minutes. :hehe:
