Try using the Genie SRT Springs winking
They will keep your line tight and allow for any stretch.

I use a sliding crimp. That is an oversized crimp with a neoprene tube insert than crimp it until it is fairly tight but will still slide along the main body of the rig. Then I simply slide the crimp along the line until it gets to the point where the snood length matches the main line length to the bait clip. Breakaway think they invented it and are now selling them but I was doing it years before they put them on the market.

Try using adjustable silicon stops instead of crimps, you can adjust the rig to the required tightness once you've tied your snood and hook on then.

I've showed how with pics in this thread:

I also use SRT springs like Mrix mentioned on most of my rigs, great bit of tackle and really handy if you're an OTG caster.

Forget the one hook clipped down rig and make pulley rigs instead. They give much the same bait presentation and it doesnt matter if you tie the hooklength a bit short.

a little tip with the SRT springs ,cut them in half,they still perform the same.

if not using them,make your snood and hook tied on with a small swivel at other end ,get your main rig body (make sure its long enough) tie a genie link at one end (the bait clip ones are ideal) put on which ever clip you are using,slide on crimp then bead then swivel (one with your snood and hook) then bead then crimp,hang a weight from bottom link (to get tension) clip up hook and slide crimps to tighten ,crimp bottom one first,and bobs ya uncle.

dont forget to tie on top swivel

sorry about the step by step guide and i dont mean to sound patronising

Andy

crimp last. make rig up then place hook in clip and slide bottom crimp up till it is tight then crimp it.
