Corland slicker line-from another NG
Too slick I see! What I have gone to is using the ready made braided loops,
but with the following changes:
1) Cut the end of the 555 of cleanly and barely dip the end in aquaseal,
just an 1/8" or less. Let completely dry.
2) Put on the shink tubing that came with the loop and slide it up your
3) Put on the loop till the line end butts up against the loop itself.
4) Move the shink tubing to cover the braided loop end - half on the line
and half on the loop material
5) make the line where the shink tubing covers the loop and the line
6) slide the shrink tubing up
7) slide the braided loop down
8) with fine sand paper or a fine nail file GENTLY Rough up the area you
9) Slide the braided loop back in place and glue with a think layer of
zap-a-cap the whole area that is roughed up let dry completely
10) Slide the shrink tubing down 1/2 on the line and 1/2 on the braided loop
where you have marked
11) Shrink the tubing per instructions
Let set for a day, and I have used exercise weights to test the above on old
line and it has never released. I hope this helps.
