fox angled run beads, great bit of kit easy to change lead size or remove for transportation

see here

thats all I use and change length of hooklink depending on bottom, plus the extra distance (as in the distance between the clip eye and bottom of lead) also helps if its silty etc

Google "Keith Moores Running Rig" or search on this forum - he uses the Enterprise plastic rings, c-clips and silicon sleeves to do just what you're after.

The rubber on the ring thing pulls back to expose a metal loop to attach the lead if i see that correct? Tx!

Korum bolt and run. Can use running, can use with a bolt effect, can easily change lead. Use them on the rivers and work great

Thanks all for the suggestions, the nash thingy of the past looks nice as does the q ring as an idea (apart from it grabbing the line), but something like that could work. Combining everything i see cutting of the swivel and then slide a nash thingy over the eye, insert peg as close as it gets. Cheers!

Gardner do a Q ring -cut off the swivel , use this in place of swivel. Slide the lead off the Q ring. Might be some others out there?

Why not mount the lead on a lead clip and use a slightly smaller swivel so it can just be a running lead. Easy to remove the lead for packing up or if changing lead size.

I still have a few of those Nash run rings in my tackle box. At the moment I prefer the Gardner Target Run Rings. The lead is secured by a crook and covered with a sleeve, which can be moved to release the lead when you want to. It has worked fine for me so far.

When I used to fish for catfish with a running rig, I used a Nash gizmo that was basically a plastic run ring, but with a cavity underneath it for the lead swivel. You'd then secure the eye of the swivel by sticking a plastic pin through it. So, to look at, it just looked like a lead weight hanging off a plastic run ring - the swivel was not visible. So, no need to cut the line to remove the lead. Unfortunately, can't remember what they were called and they are now discontinued.

Must be something equivalent on the market today would have thought?

Physics won't help when the material is worn though. Plus it would need to be an insert as lead itself is a fairly soft material and wouldn't take a thread well at all .which is another point of possible failure. Not sure on your reasoning for not wanting to use a little clip, but if you're ok with just cutting your line to replace each time then fair enough

Metal housing in the lead with grooves to grab the swivel, that would be it, would last ages and with big chucks it would grab harder, because physics.

Anyways, i'd rather keep cutting my line instead of adding super handy extra swivels, plastics and what have you.

My name is not Ali btw, just wondering if such a lead exist:P
