I'm looking to use the shocker style bolt rig when fishing in france this year. I'm going to use it inline (like on the Korda dvds) with a bead at the swiveal and the backstop bead up about 4 inches from the inline lead with its inside tube removed. Could anyone tell me the bead size which will push tightly over korda rig tubing 0.75 in size?

cheers

danco

:0) hehehhehhe, well done jonny.

the small korda ones are fine mate, they fit nice and snug on the tungsten sections (which is pergectly safe when wet).

its the same size bead you get with the flying backleads (don't forget to also thread one on the line before tying the leader)

drop a rig in the edge and try and pull it apart purely by pulling on the hooklink. if you cant do it (and that includes getting it over the loop on the end with regards to "chod" leaders) then its not "perfectly safe"

if we are talking carp of 10lb plus (which i am) then you know how hard a hooked beastie shakes its head about when trying to get rid of a rig - i just cant see a lead not coming free

personally, i have total confidence that it would not tether a carp

try it yourself.....if you cant, can a fish? for a fish to exert any force on it, the lead would already have to be snagged.

but if its snagged, and its an inline lead, the leader will just pull through the centre of the lead.

to be honest it's probably safer than lead clips (considering the force most anglers bosh them together in order they dont lose a lead)

(ps....the pectoral on the fish on the mat is at a funny angle)

...they call it the shocker

(sorry about the URL - how do you put quick links in anyone)

the fish is slightly sloping back so its belly is up in the air - its making the fin look funny, but have no fear, no fish were harmed in the filming of this motion picture.......it was the poor ****** i caught on the back stopped leader afterwards that suffered
