I use a blob of putty about 2cm from the hook. Genuinely cant remember the last time I dropped a fish (touch wood). Although my syndicate isnt an easy water

Always use esp tungsten loaded in semi stiff and a size 4 mugga regardless of bait size

I use the German and see no need for a shot . I do think I bigger hook works better on it though . I use 20lb mono for hooklink material , cheap as chips

Leave the coating all the way through. Kind of defeats the object of the rig if you strip the coating imho

Cheers. Do you strip the coating by the hook or just leave the coating straight through?

Personally I think It wouldn’t serve much purpose unless it’s a very big shot. I use the German and don’t see any need to tweek it

Was watching someone’s variation of German rig on you tube. They have a sinker just up from QC swivel. It explained that the shot was integral to the mechanics working properly as when the rig is taken by a fish, the sinker ‘sinks’ turning the hook into an aggressive position, thus hooking the fish. When watching the guy explain and demonstrate it, at a slow pace, it looked a no brainier and the best rig in the world lol.

So I got to thinking. Having watched the underwater videos, would that sinker actually have time to ‘plummet’ once sucked in, everything happens so quickly??
