This picture was posted on another forum and then a thread in here, rather than move the original thread and tidy it up I thought it best to start a new one.

This is what can happen if you use leadcore with a lead clip, this fish was wrapped up and nearly lost its life because of a poor setup.

When using leadcore please only use it with a helicopter rig setup, such as the chod rig for example. There is another thread in this section on how to use/tie ledcore so if in doubt please have a look there.

thanks

In reply to Post #1000
this was sent through by another member to highlight just how NOT to tie a rig.

notice how the lead CANNOT eject if the line snaps because of the swivel, even worse is that the angler has used leadcore.
