Happens to me too frequently

The line and front taper can easily manage a long leader with splitshot, weighted fly, etc. I've fished it with a 14' nymphing leader and a heavy ESL with no difficulty. The front taper has what Rio calls a "bullet taper" which stays fairly thick as it tapers down until the last couple of feet. That taper has plenty of turnover force.
