  1. Thanks Buzzbomb, I will take a look at those rods.
  2. Thank you guys for the feed back. I will remove that split lead from my line. I wouldn't want to risk killing a fish for no reason. I will also look into getting another rod. Do you guys have any rod suggestions you might recommend? I do prefer a rod in the 7 ft to 9 ft range. I find anything over 9 ft a bit to to big for my liking. Thanks again guys.
  3. Hey all, Shane here from London, Ontario. I recently have been using an inline method feeder 3oz, setup as a bolt rig. The rig works great but the only issues that i have been experiencing are while fighting the fish. i seem to consistently feel like the line is being pulled from snags on the bottom while im fighting a carp on the line. It feels more like the method feeder is hitting the rocks or bottom of the river while the fish is running / fighting. and in some cases it catches pretty good, causing a break off. Just wondering if there is any solution to help prevent this from happening? i did put a small split lead about 12 inches above the method lead to prevent it from sliding down to far on my line while fighting a fish, which seemed to help, but did not fix the issue. Or is it a fairly common issue while fishing with a heavier method feeder / bolt rig setup? Although it is an issue for me i did land 14/16 in a few hours the other day without a break off like the above mentioned, but i could feel the lead snagging on the bottom then pulling out of the snag. sometimes it's enough to feel like the carp got off but then i reel in a bit to find it's still on the line. as of current i am using 10lbs power pro braided line with a 7 foot Ugly stick elite medium rod as a starter setup. Also have the Okuma avenger 30b reel as a starter reel.
