That was going to be my first question.
Ron, the question wasn't about how effective a fixed paternoster rig or anything to do with the chod rig (which is not fixed). The question is about how widely used the FIXED paternoster is these days - given that it is fixed and potentially a tether rig.
And how weak a bs does the weak link need to be for a 1lb roach to break free (after a mainline break)?
A week link is effective should a lead get snagged while you are playing a fish and you pull for a break. But what if the mainline breaks? The fish is left snagged.
