I dont make the my rigs exactly the same until I start seeing a pattern for the time of year, for instance I find shorter snoods on my pennels work better during colder months.
I make everything on minimum 4/0 to 7/0 to avoid the smaller species, Im only looking for bass, cod, smoothies, and going forward, tope.

ive read about breakway crimps and their crimp tool, apparently it crimps the line in such a way that it doesnt damage it plus it also has rubber on the inside
also about that knot, how will it hold up against a really hard fighting fish, surely it might snap when its put under hard enough pressure?
