fox evolution rig case

Post  kell on Fri Jan 07, 2011 6:42 pm

the new fox evolution rig case just bought one and wondered if any one else had seen or tried them.

reason i have bought one to try was distance between hooks should be able to be judged for different size baits,because you cannot see how far apart the hooks are set on a roll.

and just because i want one and i like evolution gear .

lefty make sure my delivery does not get held up lol Very Happy

yep thats the one. I tried a rig the other day while out with adie with a slidable secound hook so i could adjust to the size of my bait but i hooked into a fish and lost it and when i looked at my rig then two hooks were side by side.
now no confidence in sliding secound hook and when i saw this rig holder i like the idea of been able to make different length rigs and possibly hold up against my chosen bait to select spot on size rig with two fixed hooks. Just my way of thinking and the fact it is more tackle ? Very Happy

Bear in mind it's massive Kell. My mate has one and it's far too big for my liking. He never seems to find anywhere it'll go neatly. Even he hates it.

I prefer to roll my traces up, stick them in zip-lock bags and then put them in a tub.

It shouldn't if it's been turned round the shank tightly enough times. Could be the type of wire? Some wires are far too glossy or slippery for my liking. I've had crimps slip on some wires. That's why I prefer coated wires, so I can heat the plastic inside the crimp.

I also think turning the wire round the shank of a hook is damaging the wire, no matter how you dress it up.

Yeah - but some people actually like to use this sliding hook method as they believe it allows for adjustments in bait size and results in more hook-ups...not from my experience though...but several very good anglers i know use this type of trace a lot. Cool

I have not phiscally seen one just ordered it online so will have to wait till it gets here but i do have two rig rolls in my bag so if i can get rid of those it may be ok.
will have to see what it is like.
The sliding rig thing has shaken my confidence in that type of rig and has with a lot of fishing confidence is everything i think ? .

adie i will leave enough room for a little spinning rod for you so what you moaning about (make sure it@s telescopic though ) lol Very Happy
