    Angel I have never seen that rig before. Interesting.It would get your weight up and out of the way. Thanks for sharing.:big_smile:

    That looks like it would be a pretty effective rig. Nice find I will be trying this soon.

    Thanks Mr. Edwards i have been pondering trying it out looks like it might work. Have you had any success with it. Looks like a striper on the animation. Hint Hint !!

    works like a charm especially with a reel with free spool. fish takes the bait and once the swivels meet the hook is set. aka a better mousetrap. the for long distance look at the 2 links i provided and you'll notice they are clipped down pulley rigs. adds about 30% more distance.

    I tried it out briefly tonight. I didn't catch anything on that particular rig, however I was impressed as it casted beautifully. I guess you have to add a weight that is of equal or lesser weight than the bait been used.

    sinker weight depends on water conditions and what you're targeting i have used as lite as 1oz for perch or bluegills up to 14oz for drum and sharks. of course i wouldn't use a 6oz to 4oz fish they won't be strong enough to lift the sinker off the bottom for a self hookset.

    Looks great for a lake but, I don't think it would be good for fast water because of it tangling and not working correctly. Fast current would tie it in knotts that, you have never heard of or, could mimmic, LOL!!!

    I gotta give that a shot. Looks like it would work great for carp. Thanks

    Mark, the bait clip...is that just copper wire?

    How is it attached to the leader...with a crimped sleeve?

    Possibly but maybe if you attach it to the correct swivels. Interestingly enough i did try and "simulate" fast current situations(lol) twisting it popping up and down and it didn't tangle. (the weight tucks neatly into the swivel). It could be a viable alternative to our friend the three-way rig.

    dreadnaught it'll work in a swift current the only catch is you have to tie the hook on leader material. its stiffer than mono and resists tangling.

    katmandeux yes you can use copper wire for the baitclip i just tie mine on using a uni knot with a piece of mono.

    ozzy it would work for carp,but a better rig for them would be a bolt rig or a hair rig.

    Not sure exactly what you are asking kkyootee. But i tried it yesterday i tell you this it cast wonderfully. I think i got about an extra 8 or 9 yards.(than my regular Carolina rig) When you riffle it the weight slips up (into the swivel i put a small bead so the swivel wouldn't get damaged by weight) when it lands in the water the lead will sink(it been denser/heavier) and your bait will rise. I also dunked right in front of me and confirmed that the weight sunk and the bait rose up. I hope this answers your question...lol...You see how the weight looks when the fish is caught that is what it looks like when its zipping thru the air.

    bacardipr05 you're halfway there! when you put on the swivel for for running line (the center swivel) place a bead on before and after the swivel that way they protect your knots and make your hook leader stand out away from the rig a little more.
