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.

Always use Krimps with boom and never had one slip or snap.

Yes a am crimping it right, following crimping instructions on the web. Me and my mate have found the same slipping and snapping at the crimps. We both used the 0.65mm boom and 0.7mm crimps. I'm not bothered as a perfection loop does the job just fine.

Do your own test, make two booms, one with crimps and one with knots. I have found the knotted version can take a lot more beating, the crimped version snaps and slips.

I crimp 25lb boom with 0.6 crimps and they are rock solid and reliable, are you sure you are crimping it right? I've never had one go so far

Maybe they got stuck with a big stock of the round ones, this way they can sell them

Also the Korda ready tied booms have knots instead of crimps. I use the korda boom material in 0.65mm and have found the crimps are very weak, I also just use two perfection knots.

Firstly I don't use spinner/Ronnie rigs and I have no issues with korda as I use boom, crimps and other bits etc but I've just seen this new pack. Question is how come the swivels supplied are qc round ones and not the dedicated spinner swivels?! Very odd...
