One thing about using that genie clip as a rotton bottom - make sure your casts are smooth or weight can come off the holding sleeve which will part lol:thumbs:
Are you going to Newton tonight Jangle...???
The weak link isn't taking any strain mate - it's looped when clipped up to something in the various rotton bottom forms you can choose from...
Distance should not matter for rotten bottom i tend to use whatever my main line is with a couple of overhand knots in it seems to work for me hope this helps dai
Where you hooking the lead up to a hook or link of some sort the weak link should not be under stress when you cast only when snagged if using a rotten bottom stronger than your main line you wil be wasting your time daii found that 25lb maxima weak link was snapping as i was casting:g:
But was the lead hooked up to the clip?i had it tied to a gemini bait clip:yucky:
