am I being fik ...................I dont understand the silicon which to me will stop the ring moving down the hook to the eye leaving the hook to "hook"

I'm afraid i must also agree, it looks a lot of over complication for what would work just as well without the length of Heat Shrink Tubing on the shank of the hook.

Never the less, as i said previously, still a well written and easy to follow guide.

I might go back and tippex out the piece of Shrink Tube on the shank :D

That was my first thought.

I thought the idea was for the ring to position the hair to come of near the bend but to allow free movent along the shank to reduce likelyhood of ejection.

Sure the way it is shown has the same effect of putting a long piece of shring tube all the way along the shank to position and fisx the hair???

Baffled about that piece of silicon, whats it doing? I'm sure i'm missing the point (no pun). I'll have to re read it.

Why is using a ring better than a longer hair, I thought the object was the same but the longer hair rig allowed the hook to drop when the bait was blown out? This is genuine question, me not being a carp angler an'all.

I too can't see the point of the rig, as it is basically a fixed hair? So the ring can't move down the shank allowing the hook point to drop down.
A "D" rig will allow this movement and so will a ring mounted hair between two spaced stops!
And yes Warren, I can see your rig working too;)

If i was going to fish it with a long hair, i would remove the rig ring, and the long length of shrink tubing on the shank of the hook, and replace them both with a small piece of tubing set at the bottom of the hook shank near were the bend of the hook starts.

Sorry i don't have a picture of it.

I personally dont think its better

the only reason I would not use wols first rig is the ring looks like it could travel around the bend and sit on the barb
so if the bit between the knot and the ring was 1mm shorter I would be happy

but then it wouldn't blow back - ian's has got soft silicon in between ring and eye so it should fold up. it's there to ensure the ring is in the right position when the bait is sucked in.

That's exactly what would happen with the rig i suggested.

The long hair would fold back against the piece of silicon and the hook would stay were it was until the weight of the bait being blown back moved the hook.

Shrink tube which is shrunk to grip the shank of the hook isn't as soft as you're suggesting, it would not fold up that easily.
