What I use to tighten any crimps, is just a normal pair of pliers. Not the wire cutting part, but the end of the pliers, and squeeze the crimp along its length. Therefore dont have to tighten it very hard and where you have the entire length squeezing the line not just 1 or 2 points, it holds just fine. Using this method making rigs I havent had a rig snap on me yet!!

I have this problem every so often and use a proper crimping tool. I clamp it twice and usually using 80lb rig body..60lb minimum.

I've tried the adjustable crimps but found the type I bought(only ones I could find) only took line up to 20lb and anything else would be like trying to thread a camel through the eye of a needle.


Does anyone use stop knots with silicone or neo' tubing? I've been thinking about doing these but..not sure on what size tube to get and if this method will reduce the strength as much as a crimp would?

OK chaps this is what I have been doing for at least the last four years and it predates Breakaway who are now doing the same thing I see so they should give me some royalties LOL. I generally use 60 lb rig bodies and I know the line diameter of course so when I started doing it, I hunted around the tackle shop for some neoprene tubing which would go on it fairly easily. Then I hunted for some crimps which would just about go over the neoprene tube, they are pretty big of course. I expect you are now ahead of me but yes crimp the rig body with the neoprene and large crimp combined and if you get it about right it will hold adequately on the line but still allow you to slide it a tad if necessary to mount your snoods accurately for a clipped down rig.

Eccles-I have seen your method used on freshwater setups(on a smaller scale sizewise)it seems to do the job with less risk of line damage.Have also seen people use this method with powergum instead of a metal crimp-dont know if its as secure though,Mick

bit of a late reply, but i've just started using silicone rig stops and i think there great i use 1mm tube colour not important. i got a meter for 1.10.
how to use
1. cut the tubing to size (silicone about 5mm - neoprene about 4mm) and thread line though it.
2. pass the line though again in the same direction as before to form a loop though the tubing.
3. pull the line tight from both ends and stop knot is formed.

you will need more than one stop per side of the rig bead i use 3 or 4 but you can move each one independently which means every rig you make is easily adjustable. you can change snood position and if you use some form of speed link for your snoods you could say change a one hook clip down into a long and low by putting a longer snood on and sliding the silicone stops.
