I think Mozza uses chod filament. Basically, anything stiff.

My experience is that longer hairs and slightly bigger baits (20mm -16mm snowman, double 20mm, 25 or 30mm hookbait) help slowing down nuisance.
So, I would advise to get at least 1,5cm spacing between bent of the hook and the bait and get slightly longer rigs (10-15inch)
With a German rig or a German turbo rig , the baits close to the hook, so this wouldn’t be my advised rig to battle nuisance fish.

Can’t help you out with the turbo German rig but have you tried a bollox rig as in the picture below? I always use these when pestered by nuisance species and seem to stay away from hooking them

Morning all, after a bit of advice really. Never used a turbo German rig before, but want to give them a try this spring. Are they designed purely for wafter hookbaits, or can you use standard bottom baits with them too? The water I fish is infested with bream and large roach, which are a pain on smaller hookbaits. Bare minimum hookbait size I can use to mostly slow down the nuisance fish is a 20mm single bait, or a snowman with a 20mm bottom bait and 15mm pop up. Are snowman’s any good on a German rig and if so, which size and pattern hook should I use with them. I usually use a size 4 Angling Iron longshank or curveshank on my current rigs, which usually consist of either single or double 20mm baits, single 24mm baits, or 20mm+15mm snowmen.
Any help or advice greatly appreciated.
