Does anyone drill a few the other way so you can squeeze 2 pellets on to try to get a bigger fish ?
And thanks for that as might drill a few in shed today. Normally end up hand drilling a few on bank.

What are the advantages of using a stop when you could use a band with no need for drilling?

To me there is no need for a stop at all. Just pull a band in a hair loop through the pellet. That way it pulls off if caught in the landing net.

Nice video and the final version of the rig looks okay.

its interesting to see the cross fertilisation of ideas from one branch of angling to another. Jim Gibbinson came up with the ‘line aligner’ concept in about 1995.

Some people just make me sick. When I try that the buggers all break up, hence the pole guard I guess?
