Braided Butts and Bimini's (...not buns on the Beach)

OK I started makeing my own furled leaders...not braided. They
seem to work really well. Why are they not more popular? The
knotless mono seems lame and not as inexpensive as you would hope.
Knotted leaders have problems...what do you prefer?

See
http://www.globalflyfisher.com/fishbetter/henk/henk1.htm and http://members.home.com/freaner/fishing/furled.htm
for construction details

See for material analysis
