Great with titanium leader material.
I use these for the titanium leader material rather than trying to tie knots. They work great with a triple pass through.

They Slip
I purchased some nylon-coated cable leader, and I highly recommend going with the double sleeves. These slipped, even if I used two crimps.
ProsGood to use if you're crimping on a weight, and you want it break off on the bottom so you salvage your rig. (don't know if that's a pro)

Exactly do what they need to do
Great crimps for making trace to full size metal (either solid or titanium wire) leaders

Worth Every penny
Bought these to use with 20lbs and 40lbs steel leader material and they are absolutely perfect match for the diameter of the both. A firm and durable sleeve you can rely on when playing for biggies.

Confusing Labeling
The spool of AFW Surflon 1x7 leader that I purchased says I need AFW Sleeve #7. But none of the sites I have tried lists the Sleeve #7. They usually list the Crimp sleeves under size or use anything but the numbers listed on the spools. So if you are not familiar with the product it is pretty much a guess as to what you might end up with. Poor marketing department.

what size sleeve needs to be used with 60lb flour carbon leader
1 Answers
You really cannot use AFW for the fluorocarbon, they are for cable. Use the size J Jinkai sleeve.

what sleeve do i use for your titanium leader wire
1 Answers
Normally the titanium leader wire is not crimped using sleeves. You would normally haywire twist any single strand wire, but in this case this is very flexible wire that lets you tie a knot.
