Good morning all

I am using 25lb (0.39mm) Double X platinum for my leaders attached to 5lb Double X platinum main  line . My reels are shimano super bait runners.  I feel that the leader diameter is to thick for a nice presentation?  My weights vary from m0 to m2 and often a vaaldam strop with a p4.  Can I go thinner.  Idealy I would like to go thinner but still with a strong enough breaking strain to handle the force of a flat out cast.

Would braid be a practical option and if so which one should I go for. I have been warned that the thinner your leader the easier you can cut your finger?

This is for freshwater fishing targeting carp etc from the bank(papgooi)

Any suggestions/advice will be appreciated
