Ta mate.tying again today.
Did you say you use 19 carp
17 f1
I use 0.19 for carp, 0.15 for F1,s, but can I just say I always set my F1 jiggas up on 0.19 , as you need a stiff line in order for the jigga to work properly 👍👍

15 years plus for some of my rigs. God bless Maxima 😍 This is down to circumstances and shouldn’t be taken as a recommendation, I may have to re-make a few when i come back for good later this year 🤣🤣

Your lucky to have a rig room !! I’ve got the garage as my cave, but it’s cold, my missus has the small bedroom as a nail salon, and I’m not allowed to use the guest room, so I have to sit at the table in the dining room 🤷‍♂️🤷‍♂️

For the average pleasure/club angler, the point is, there isn’t really any need to keep rigs that long without using them ! If you have rigs that are over a season old , then they’re not the right rigs for you, were a waste of time making, and might as well be stripped down

Only thing I would add Marker50 is when you come to secure your rig to your chosen winder don’t wrap it and secure it too tightly. If you are using pole rig anchors then don’t stretch them too tightly or you’ll end up with angles in your main line when you come to take them off. I hate to see that.

Ok.may try to steamline down a bit.
Cant see that happening though 🤔
The trouble is at the moment we’ve all got too much time on our hands, and tinkering and rig tying is the next best thing to being on the bank, so we just end up with trays of rigs, some of which are unlikely to ever see water 😂😂😂
