Hey guys,

Was just curious what you guys use to protect your knots!

Plastic, glass or team cat bumpers?

I was thinking about buying the Tea Catfush weight sliders, just to try them out=--

Thanks!

Plastic beads and you can make those drifting weights really easily. YouTube will tell you how.

Santee Cooper rig will helicopter spin thus won't cast very far, it's OK from a boat but you'll be frustrated from the bank.

Three-way rig cast much further and you tie bank or disc sinkers at bottom, don't need beads.

I use these three way swivels they come with two beads built-in and won't cut your lines
3 way barrel swivels that won't cut your lines

+1 The plastic beads have a sharp edge and are 10 times harder than lead! If i had to go with something it wouls definately be rubber.
