a new type of rig for keeping your line out of the weed and is anti-tangle using the boom, something similar to what john watson used on the fens but without the boom. price 6.99 from harrissportsmail and other outletts.
thks.

good when it works but when there is absolutly no point to the thinking

the long tubing just creates problems, the theory behind that rig is lost on me, if the pivot point was at the other end of the tube then yes i can see the idea

but to have a stiff boom in front of the lead, and then no uptrace or anything behind the lead wont work very well on a few fronts it certainly wont be anti tangle as the boom will fold flat along the main line on the cast, with the trace above (which if you work on 18 inches on the trace front plus the length of the tube plus the length of the lead link) will mean casting isnt as simple, then there is the safety aspect of such a long trace which is effectivly from the point where the run ring above the lead link is

sorry but its a pointless way of doing something and then to be charged for it when other solutions already exist for the same scenario, and which dont have the inherant drawbacks and risks of fishing with elongated traces

ill stick to what i know

i mean it was first used in the 80's that im aware of when curtain rings and cork balls were used to do the same, so its nothing new just a packaged way of getting money out of the crossover carp market

alot of good input certain types of this have been around in one way or another over the years, but the way i was looking at it was with out the boom abit like watto,s rig and that worked fine.
