  2. Simon the weed is all different types from Canadian to this stuff that looks like the kelp you get at sea as well as large rocks boulders etc used to keep the liner down its brutal in places not to bad in others but in the same breath to get in the not so bad swims is hard work cause they're usually taken on a one in one out basis.
  3. Yes drop off inline I'll have to put one togeather an show you guys
  4. No yonny the hooklink is held in place by the leader coming over the outside of the lead the lead is drop off set up
  5. I use the fox inline pear and chop the incert just behind the thick bit place the swivel which I find a better fit than korda leads into the thick cut piece run the leader or line over the top in the groove rubber sleeve on the end good to go drop the lead on a take but take a very substantial cast etc

  13. I've been losing carp to weed etc which isn't good I'm changing to 30lb braid I've been using inline pear leads rig as normal out the front losing on a take but still able to retrieve if no run now what I've been thing about I've not put one out yet thought I'd see what you guys thought first 3 1/2 distance lead with the hooklink off the leader on the lead I'm using a 40lb boom with inch of supple braid at hook end because the hooklink is fixed off the side of the lead till a shake or movement the lead will drop and theres no beads etc the hooklink will come off the leader can you see any problem
