    Default Anti tangle shrink tube

    Im using a braid hooklink with a balanced tiger and was wondering if there was any logical reason i couldnt use a length of shrink tube behind the lead as a anti tangle aid? I aqquired a few metres of some 1.2mm and was thinking of using this instead of tubing

    wouldn't it be too stiff ?? possibly float up off the bottom too as its so light in comparison to tubing,and if it sits on a stone,being stiff it would stick up at a funny angle.
    my view would be no,tubing.

    but what do I know !

    I think it probably would float up, get some thick old flouro, cheap enough and better than tubing in my opinion.

    Tungsten tubing would be my preference.

    Tungsten tubing is very good but beware on waters with crayfish in, they love it sadly.
