I use my trap leader for 2 places. The first is going through a CI closet bend with a spiral saw blade. This leader I keep straight. I have a second leader that has a bend on the end When I have to clear a bigger line through a smaller cleanout. I usually end up using the 4 bladed bit with this combo. My reasoning is that a 28 leader is cheaper than a 48 cable. I believe(no proof yet) that the bend will cause a weak spot in the cable because of the flexing.

I've seen no evidence of a kinked leader being any weaker (bear in mind I am a drum person, may be different for you) just from having kinked it. But what I have noticed is that over time the area of the kink wears and the wire gets a flat spot in it from always rubbing the pipe. That's got to weaken it.
This is my reminder to myself that no good will ever come from discussing politics or religion with anyone, ever.
i guess you could wait til you damage a cable or you can cut that leader in half and have 2 special augers
Sorry Rick you will have to explain this one to me, I am not the sharpest tool in the shed.
How do you cut a cable in half and get two augers out of it?
Don't you have one female end and one male end or do you put the other cables in backwards.
do the water really swirl in the opposite direction when over there I heard that was just a myth can you set us straight. PS. My daughter has been pestering me for a kangaroo for Christmas. Can you give me a good reason to tell her no like it's illegal, there real dangerous anything. I have been trying to hide her kangaroo jack tape but no luck she always finds it.
I use the K-60 now, but many years ago I bought a General and it came with a trap leader. So, the first job I did with it was rodding through a CI closet bend. The end snapped right off of the thing. Since they didn't want to warranty it, I used it without the leader for the next ten years or so.
