    Rig making

    To remove this advert please register for a free account

    I am starting to make my own rigs I have made 3 and 2hook flappers and now want to make some clipped rigs .I am copying shop bought rigs, I used a 3 hook clipped rig at the weekend and after 2 casts the bottom hook snood had stretched and would not sit in the clip, I know that springs can be used to stop the stretch so when I copy this rig do I need one sping for each clip or just one for the bottom snood thanks.

    its gonna get quite expensive using srt springs on all three snoods matey,especially if you start losing gear. if its just your bottom snood coming out maybe try a relay clip,although they are not the best as they can slide back up the trace body if the diameter of the line is too thin for the rubber sleeve that goes over the top of the clip.
    you could always try making the bottom hook a pulley

    Are you using cascade swivels? Use springs or tubing for any clip downs to stop stretching (unless its a pully of course).

    Maybe try using Breakaway adjustable crimps, if you get any stretch in your snoods simply slide crimps up to re-tension

    Should only need a spring on the top snood of the 3......I use powergum stop knots for all of my rigs, allows you to adjust the position of the snoods if they do stretch out. Must admit ive not had that problem before though...

    The rig I was using had cascade clips,will tubing do the same as a spring ie.keep the clipped hook under tension and release on impact?

    I would use silicon tubing and to save money go to your local cheap shop and buy some pens with springs in I got 10 for a quid a lot cheaper than srt's and I only put a spring on the top snood.... Paddy

    Veals do Tronix springs 10 for £1. Better than using springs from cheap biros.

    I started using srt spings earlier this year, they only cost about 10p per spring, and I think its worth it. I recently made a 3 hook clip down with a tronix slidable bait clip, and each snood clipping onto a relay cascade swivel by Tronix, or Gemini pully clips. I found the Tronix slidable clip didn't hold 60lb rig body tight enough, so used my own clips. You can buy similar clips from Veals and other places.
