Two questions about rubber tubing or silicone tubing

1 Can it be used as part of a Pennel rig to fix the top hook instead of the line twist method.

2 Does anybody use it to cover there shockleader not,i was thinking it may cut down on the weed build up.

Yes, silicone tubing works well with pennel rigs to hold the upper snood - but as for covering shockleader with tubing.... I can't see it having any obvious advantages.

As Martyn says. I find a drop of superglue on the shockleader knot forms a nice smooth "bead" which helps reduce weed gathering.

Using it for the pennel = yes
Using it for the shockleader = you better not go there it will end up somewhere on your mainline during the cast. Hanging in there as a nice weedcatcher.....having a match with his knotbrother....:clap:

the majority of my rigs have tubing for the top hook but as far as on the shock knot goes:nono: i think i tried it years ago but obviously didnt stick to it so i dont think it was any good.:wacko: i agree with the lads maybe a small drop of glue to smooth it off.:fishing1::thumbs:
