    Default Gemini ARC lead system

    Anyone used or got their hands on one of these systems yet?

    Seems like a clever idea. I'm not so interested about the distance side of things, more the anti tangle properties with longer rigs on big throws.

    A variation on the sea/beach fishing Gemini system.

    Gimick, it looks alright and I was considering it but then again I just don't see the need for it when a two bait stringer does it for me when using a braided hook link alternatively I've been using stiff link such as Gardners Fluoro or Kordas Boom.

    The colour of the leads is far to bright !
    They say that The Queens Dragoon Guards are the worlds most feared cavalry regiment, I tell them that they are right!!

    Seen these being tested on Thursday. Not one tangle came back and ejected every time. Had already ordered some on Wednesday night, delivered on Friday.

    Done some SERIOUS testing with these.
    Hundreds and hundreds of casts at distances from 10 - 135 yards.
    Not a single problem with them at all.
    They work exactly as they should every single time.
    The colour of the leads leave a bit to be desired, but that's easy to get around.
    Really can't recommend these enough.

    It would be nice if they made the plastic bit so that you could add your own leads. Also the presentation tin is a bit OTT jiffy bag and a 5cheaper would be nice.

    Stick 'Gemini splash down' on the auction site and you can get the clips and add your own lead

    Looking at them again I suppose the colour is irrelevant when the rest of the clip is that shiny!

    They're designed as sea angling kit, so the visibility is unimportant - quick stroke with a marker pen dulls them down...
