In answer to your 3 questions...

1. No I'm not:confused:

2. This question is a hard one as it has no context, are you asking what one is or asking if I have one or would like one?:suspect:

3. Oh ok...eeerrrr.....Big brother is rubbish but I love oranges.


I hope I have covered 1 and 3 enough, but I await confirmatiion on 2:thumbs:

Two cracking responses. Good reflection of this forum.

What I was asking, to settle a debate, is what is the best type of lead setup and rig to use when fishing with a single hookbait, at 110 yards plus.

Would most go for the helicopter rig with a semi stiff hooklink, or otherwise?

Sorry re reading the thread title I see that that is part of the question I just opened it without reading it like that.....and I was being facetious :p


In answer (properly)yes it is my first and only choice of extreme distance setup.

Assuming you will be casting and not boating your rig out, my choice would be heli rig but cast in a small bag, double bag if required, and I prefer an uncoated braid for the hook link.

supernatural is surprisingly good for not tangling on a long chuck for how supple it is
