I picked up a pack of those size 4 Kamakura Krank jobbies last year just to check them out. I had a few on them with zero losses bud.

I fished two rods this weekend....

Rod 1 - Ronnie Rig, size 8 Kaptor Curve shank - two runs, two carp landed.
Rod 2 - Ronnie Rig, size 4 Kamakura Crank, one run, one hook pull.
I did have 3 rather large bream on Rod 2 but that doesn't count!

Im not sure thats concrete evidence but think I will try it again this week see if its a one off....

There is another thread below 'Heavy coated hook link' that is worth a read on hook patterns on the Ronnie.

As Levi said, take yout time and ensure everything is straight and true and you shouldnt have a problem, ive yet to have a rig break at the krimp.

On the subject of ronnies, anyone using them with size 4 kranks? I tried them last weekend instead of the normal mugga and had 3 dropped takes and lost the one fish i did connect with to a hook pull. Changed back to mugga and laded my last bite.

Barbless only rule on that lake and im wondering if the krank doesent suit barbless for ronnies

I tied a few up and the odd one was slipping, thought fxxking piece of **** but then took my time and ensured the line was aligned properly, slowly crimped. Havenít had a problem since!

Have a look at Joe Turnballís instagrams as he uses it on there (mind you plenty on Korda website)

I think, you just need to take your time to make sure itís all
Roper before you crimp

I just put a bit of the gardner xt silicon over mine , other end had the anti tangle sleeve on. Or if you prefer putty moulds well round them aswell. I never leave them exposed as they can catch weed etc easier

Iíve had the Korda krimps slip so I went back to the wychwood ones ,I think they crimp down so much better and are far more user friendly , only downside is they are a bit shiny but a marker pen or bit of putty soon sorts that

Really surprised at that as i have just re made a few boom sections as the old ones are 12 months old or more.

I have to pull seriously hard to snap them and still the Krimps donít move. I only replace them as the loops fray where I take them on and off the quick change swivel.

Tried crimping bought the 25lb Boom 0.6mm crimps and 35lb Boom 0.7mm crimps

Both have slipped every time when tested with very little pull/force applied no confidence in the method not even put a rig out with it like this which is a shame as I like the idea I shall stick with 25lb Amnesia for my booms with a figure of eight worked for years, like they say if it aint broke.

Stopped using Krimps as the later ones have been very hit & miss. Some are fine yet others slip regardless of how well they are affixed. Been crimping fluoro & materials since day one & never seen such an issue like this. Others I have spoken to have said the same. Korda did change the Krimps as they slipped on Boom but even with the new ones, the issue is still 50/50.
