one thing id like to add is you should put a snap swivvel on the end of the main line instead of just tieing the trace straight on to make changing traces easier and less hastle.

like nidge i use long traces so dont feel the need for an uptrace on that rig (unless im using livebaits but then i normaly use a different rig) and ive never had a pike bite through my line but its all about what your happy and confident with, i dont want to dissmiss kevs advice tho as he does know his stuff

I don't fish for Pike much but when I do, that's the rig I use. As Nidge, I use a long trace and have not had any trouble. Only had a couple of small Pike though so can't really comment! Suspect HaHaHa

Although I dont use an uptrace (Unless using live baits) Kev is actually correct, Its easy for your bait to fall back on your mainline, especially when fishing in deep water, so an uptrace is reccomended Wink

i like to use heavy flat grip leads to anchor the stems down & to stop lead drag on a take,Usually i'm using 4oz & these stems were'nt havin it.they snapped at 2oz...junk...i've emailed a complaint.Purely cause of how dangerous it is & this usa news story says it all.

LI man struck and killed by lead fishing weight
MELVILLE, N.Y. -- A man fishing off Long Island is dead after a 3-ounce lead fishing weight attached to his pole struck him in the face and dug into his brain.

Relatives and a physician say Roosevelt resident Jaime (Hai-MEH) Chicas (CHEEK-ahs) died Tuesday from severe head trauma and herniation.

A neurologist at Nassau University Medical Center says the lead weight from Chicas' fishing pole hit with "so much force that it kept going" and lodged in the back of his head.

Relatives say the 21-year-old was fishing with his brother-in-law and cousin at the west end of Jones Beach Friday when the accident happened.

Lead sinkers are commonly used by fishermen to sink lures more rapidly

The Fox ones also have problems with the lead attachment coming off on the cast, I have put a dab of super glue on mine which seems to have sorted them out scratch
