    I didn't use one of then..on the pulley rig you found that I put new hooks on the braid kept getting wrapped up on the top clip..I used the bait clip that was on it and a couple of times it came back still clipped up..was fine with the lead clip tho

    I was quite suprized. I like breakaway gear..might have been stickin from being on the beach..personally like to keep things abit simpler and just use the splash downs..told Mike he's needs to change them stupid hooks on them flapper rigs..they are more like harpoons than hooks!
