I recommend lengthening the tops. The stock bottoms are long enough, and IMHO you don't need any more than one knot in the bottoms (although I actually have two until the pigtail wears out). 

 

Take a look at the leader lengths that John Barresi uses. The bottoms are relatively long and the top ones are probably twice longer than the bottoms. This is very useful when you begin doing catch and throw. Allows you to grab the leaders way out there instead of the flying line which can cut you quite badly.

Quick question... Got this leader line in today and before I started I had the thought of if I needed to sleeve it or if it would be fine as is. Stupid newbie question I know, bit I'd rather ask. Thanks

There are no stupid questions... no need to sleeve leader line (unless it's your preference hehe), in fact leader line can usually can be used as sleeving material (core removed)!

The bridle line you just got is already sleeved.
