First get some leadcore, splicing needle, needle, swivels, scissors and your mainline ( i have used heavy braid here for clarity)


next, slide back the outer sheath to expose the lead, break off approx 4"


release the outer sheath and you will now have a limp section


where the lead core now ends, pass the splicing needle through the side, up the centre around and inch and back out the side


hook up the loose end in the gated end of the splicing needle


gently tease the needle back through


untill its all the way out, remove the needle


tease the loop gently to pull the loose end back in side, just as the loose end disapears, pull everything tight. repeat the above at the other end.


if you want to add a swivel (to go in a lead clip etc) slide the loop through the eye of the swivel


then pass the swivel through the loop


attach the swivel to the loop as shown, this will allow you to take the swivel back off if needed


to attach your mainline, get the free loop and your chosen mainline (the following knot is a 5 turn grinner, replace as you like with your chosen knot)


pass the line through the loop


create another loop


pass the free end through the loop 5 times


wet and tighten down the knot.


the next photos show an other method of attaching your mainline.
remove a length of lead as described earlier


insert a needle and gently singe the frayed end.


pass the splicing needle though the side and all the way out the end, attach your line and pull back through


as per the five turn grinner, create a loop and pass the line through 5 times.
wet and tighten knot


pull tight till it locks up


to splice on a swivel, remove lead, insert needle, slip a swivel over the loose end, attach loose end to needle


pull needle back through, pull tight and trim excess loose end.


hope this of use to everyone.

Thanks the the op and those who commented on this thread. I've been burying my head with splicing my own lead core for some time. After some messing around (and wasted lead core and 3 broken needles) i am now tying perfect leaders every time. From my own tribulations my tips would be be:

1) Put a kink half way down the leader during splicing to prevent the lead core moving during the process

2) Splay the fibres out at the end of the braid and catch these with the latch when pulling back through. Don't try to pull too much braid back through.

3) Use ESP splicing needles.

After watching loads of videos the one below helped me the most.

No problem, glad you're sorted. If you're new to using leadcore I can understand a degree of hesitancy but a spliced loop is exceptionally strong. Your mono will snap long before that gives way.

You mean the loop in the leadcore? Its a spliced loop. When cinched down the loose fibres of the leadcore compress and stop it from coming undone. The more tension applied, the tighter the compression. You can glue the splice if you wish but I never bother.

Hiya! Very good illustration and instructions. Can you tell me how the braid is secured? Does it not slide out? Or does it fix there once the loop is created? Thanks... Andrew

I'll tell you straight away what I find annoying about leadcore:

Finding info on what beads and tubing fits

Anyway it is banned on all my locals, so I have given up on it

I do quite like using it as it is a nice material but I take all the pinning the line down with a large dose of salt now to be honest. The last few feet of line, even if you are bowstringing at short to medium range, naturally pins itself down very flat

As for protecting the line from a helicopter rig's swivel, also been taking all that with a dose of sodium chloride recently as there are some little ins and outs that avoid the need for all that too

Each to their own I suppose but I think leaders are way, way overused

The point of a leader in the first place was for safety in winding up a long distance boomer cast, they never had anything to do with what went on in the lake IMO

Expect a volley of abuse now, lol, please correct me if I am missing something but let's face it leadcore and tubing are always going to be a crude ''here I am'' addition to any end setup

some splicing needles are just pants & no amount of care will stop them snapping!

with the ESP ones i find that rather than just trying to pull the needle through, its more a case of pushing the leadcore over the needle & teasing it through.

i still break them though!

When I'm splicing leadcore I snap numerous splicing needles is there a knack to pulling the leadcore back inside itself it just seems really tight all the time and ends up with the gate of the splicing needle breaking

instead of doing the loop to swivel technique to get the swivel on , is it still secure to slide the swivel on the leadcore then pull the leadcore through itself

So from where the needle enters the leadcore to where it exits and pulls back through should be about a inchn half !

As long as youve spliced a good length, 1 and half inches for me, the splice acts like the chinese finger trap. (if youve ever heard of that?)

As the outer is pulled tight it grips the inner very tightly.

Excellent mate and spot on. I've been doing my own leadcore for about a year now. I personally only use on heli's myself. No matter what you use, these always going to be numpty's who don't listen and learn and use things that are dangerous to the fish. We've all seen them on the banks. My Dad was microwaving hemp

Thanks for that Nick!!

I had a leadcore loop on a chod rig go on me on the cast and the 3 oz lead went straight up in the air and landed 3 feet away from me (in the Dark with me the only angler on the lake at the time). I was looking around for quite some time and then THUD!!

I was bloody furious at the time and for 2 day's later and if the ebayer I bought it from had been within reach??? well you get the picture!!

NEVER EVER trust another anglers loops or knots!! if you do remember what happened to me - or could have done!! if I had moved 3 feet forward!!

In reply to people still using a swivel to attatch mainline to the leadcore, perhaps the diagram was ment the other way around, the swivel being used to attatch a hook link? Still not a great way of using leadcore i agree, as the fish is still left with the leadcore and no way of ridding it.

In reply to Post #1000
sorry to repeat what others have put up but.....first off I would never use a lead clip with lead core, this means the hooklink is still attached to the leadcore even though the lead is off....that means your carp is sitting there with 3 feet of 45lb breaking strain leadcore attached to its bottom lip!!!! it's why Marsh Prattley at Orchid Lakes banned the use of it, a 41lb Common was found dead in the reeds tangled up in leadcore.
The hooklink has to come off or don't use it!!

I also agree about the knot used, a needle knot is easy enough to tie and takes a couple of minutes to do.

I have also seen the spliced ends come undone under pressure so I normally melt the end and add superglue before pulling it back inside. Might not be the best method but i've never had one give on me.

for line attachment I prefer the palomar knot

otherwise mate a good article

nice tutorial.

However I have one question. In the other thread about the Dangers Of Leadcore it says do NOT use a Lead Clip with leadcore as this makes it a death rig, with pictures of a fish with it all wrapped round it!

so can i or can't i use a lead clip with it, i NEVER use a swivel to tie to the mainline and I wouldn't use any sort os bead that would stop the clip coming off??

Thanks.

POTENTIAL DEATH RIG

These pictures are very good, however I do disagree with the second method of attachment. The knot that is used is incorrect as the excess/tail end of the knot is pointing in the wrong direction.

In the event of a lost rig/snap up/crack off.

If this was to be used with the ever popular chod rig (or some other rigs) then the bead above the rig may not be able to get over this knot. The excess/tail end of line acts in the same way as a bard does and can cause the bead to get trapped behind it, creating a piece of leadcore with a lead attached at one end and a rig at the other that can not be disgarded by the fish. The chance of this increases with thicker/stiffer line or if weed gets caught around it.

If you are to attach leadcore in this way (via spicing) then the knot used most double back on itself in order for the tail/excess end to be pointing away from the lead and leadcore. If this is done then the tail end will not impeed the movement of the bead over the knot and will allow the fish to free the rig from the leadcore.

well done mate great pics and instruction, i have used leadcore for years and find it great when used properly, a couple of points i have found the gardner leadcore the best by a long shot its much thinner,the lead never pokes through the skin and being thin your end tackle will easily slip off if you should crack off or your main line break!! my other point is some people are still tieing the leadcore to their mainline using a SWIVEL!!!!! THIS SHOULD NEVER BE DONE AS IT TURNS IT INTO A DEATH RIG! should always be tied as you have shown! well done geez.

Since I posted that, I think I have got my head around it!!

If you push the outer section of the leadcore together, all the strands sort of open up loose but if you pull it tight , obviously it tightens up. So when pulling the tag end through it's loose allowing it to be pulled through. However, when you try and pull it back apart, the outer tightens up on the inner not letting it back through.


I don't know if that made any sense

When you make a loop and you gently tease the loose end back through, how does it manage to not pull all the way back through and undo the loop?

I hope that makes sense

you need to feed the sheath over the needle as opposed to pulling the needle. if that makes sense. if you pull the needle you are tightening it down as you pull it through.

Bought some safezone heli leaders yesterday, decided to take them back this morning and exchanged them for some of this esp leadcore and splicing needles. Used this guide, spot on everytime. Cheers

The knot is down to personal preference there is no end of possibilities. The needle knot, grinner and loop to loop are my personal favourites. The needle knot it better if there is any weed as it has a slimmer profile - thus less can catch on it.
