Anyone know how to rig a SWR dispy?
Anyone heard of a SWR dispy?
Yeah, I run all my dipsys that way. I don't know if it is any better, but having a long lead, around 40ft, let's me hand the rod to one of my kids once I get the dipsy in.
I have braid backing and then about 30ft of mono leader. I go with mono, just so something has a stretch component to it, because there is no snubber.
About 10ft up the braid backing I tie a loop knot. I was using a dropper loop, but after losing two dipsys to knot failure (one when just tripping dipsy to pull line, and the other when a fish hit) I did some reading and am trying a figure 8 surgeons knot. We will see how it goes.
Then just use an sbiner clip to attach the front of the dipsy to the loop.
