Another one for Avid rundown hooklink. Very heavy & reliable.
Atomic Bareback is also good.

As per previous post, adding a stick, stringer etc can help reduce tangles, just feather the cast & stop it just before hitting the water to kick the hooklink out.....

In a carp world where coated short braids are dominant, a longer supple link may just add a few extra fish

Nash Amourlink, I've only been using it for edge fishing.

I use avid pin down hooklink in 20lb for a few years now, in my opinion it is one of the best braids out there. Before that I used ESP anchor braid. I always use an inline lead set-up and a ring swivel on the rig for anti tangle properties. Feather on the cast so the hooklink stretches when it hits the water and you will be fine. If you still suffer tangles on the cast you can add a small pva bag or a stringer, a heavy hookbait also helps. Use with confidence

Wondering what you guys/girls are using as a braid hooklink?

Not for PVA bags, but as for a 9 to 14 inch hook link.

I'd be also interested to know what the lead setups being used for upto 120 yards when using braid straight through as a hook link.

Thanks
