There are situations when line breakages are inevitable. One simple example is snagging up - when pulling for a break may be required. Anyway that's an aside, the plain and simple fact is that it happens and for some people it happens a lot - and they accept it ! End tackles are left lying around and if that if includes lead core, the lead, hooks and big knots then that is very bad news for a fish that picks it up !
Dont see why with the correct application a fish should be left trailing anything.even the hook link that it seems many carpers feel aceptable? Any breakage of the main line is simply down to bad angling.If anyone doesnt agree please give me some examples?
So my philospohy is that if so many people can't use the stuff safely then don't use it at all.
