PostSubject: Splash Down Solo Bait Clip   Sun Nov 04, 2012 12:05 am

Been using these for A few months now and found them OK

I always used imps in the past

the Gemini clips were great when I was using hooks to size sakuma 3-0 match but I am now using 4-0 and have found the hook wont fit in the clip and if you put the hook in and then load the clip its A very tight fit and does not release is there A different size or are they standard I have found that the clip fits my needs better than the imps but if they don't do A bigger one I will go back to using imps for the bigger hooks I have tried using various bait clips over the years and the imps are brilliant but as I say the Gemini one was ideal for pushing baits into strong winds as odd times the imps would release the hook mid cast so if any one knows if there are different sized Gemini clips would appreciate the help scratch

There's only one size as far as i'm aware, as well as not fitting a 4/0 they can occasionally jam

interesting stuff.

I use imps but I always struggle to assemble the imp's plastic bit into the wire, if I use long nose pliers I end up permanently bending the wire pivot, is there a trick to it?

A pound coin under the cross bar will lock them open making it easier but not easy cheers

I started by using Breakaway's impact shields then moved on to the imp's. Much easier to use when making rigs up.
Kirky's dad has just got himself some Gemini splash down solo clips, but I don't think he's tried them yet.
