I would reckon you are talking to the wrong person, I spent ages experimenting with it. It takes only a small twist or kink to stop a bead sliding off, holding the rig in place. It only takes 6 inches to be able to snag around a stick and potentially tether.

Nothing with leadcore on it😉
I can't stand the stuff, feel it is always a safety risk to fish. I'd much rather not get snapped off and having a fish trailing that around.


If you use it correctly with a Rotary Rig setup that does not drop the lead & the bead above the hooklink can pass easily over any knots (needle knot is best with a 15mm tag), like you should with ANY leader, then the fish would be towing only the hooklink. Leadcore gives a much better abrasion resistance than fluorocarbon or mono if fishing areas that may cause cut offs.

Popups will get washed around unless seriously overweighted by boat traffic and flow from lock gates opening & closing. Better off fishing with a bottom bait with a little bit of bouyancy but not enough to be a proper wafter if you get my drift, to stop it flying around.

the sections of the canals i have fished in the past had so much crap on the bottom . when i started i was getting cut off on the take a few times - my rigs at the time were flouro leadrs because of the clear water. when i changed to long lengths of leadcore and i never had another cut off .

actually just recalled it wasnt lead core it was the lead free version that nash do.

I'm lazy, I still use D rigs on coated braid, fluoro or mono.
Unless I needed to I would also be fishing pendant or inline leads as well.

Marina, lots of boat movement, lots of soft shifting silt, not sure I'd be using lots of lead core. As for Yonny, fish to your spot.

Choose your rig to suit the spot bud, not the type of water.
Can't go wrong with a hinge imo.
