Default Snap Weight Release

I run Suffix 832 braid in 20 lb. test on my trolling reels. I have been trying different types of releases as I keep having them fall off while trolling. Has anyone found a release that holds well on super braided line yet can come off when bringing a fish in?

Default use a loop

tie a loop in your line and attach the snap in the loop- problem fixed.


meaning, take the super line and configure a loop, not physically tie a loop- you get it I'm guessing- This allows a no slip snap attachment method

I use the OR-16 snap weight clips, which ones are you using?

Offshore releases don't fall off ( there is a pin you put the line behind so it can't fall off) Slippage is a problem I don't have but I seldom drag the weights on the bottom. If the rubber gets torn up you can replace the pads. JMO Bob (Same as 7 Mag posted while I was typing)

I use the OR-16 releases for my snap weights also. The only way you can lose them is if the person attaching it to the line doesn't get it behind the pin.

I've been using OR-16 snaps for years with braid. I don't tie loops in my line, but wrap them around the clip once under the pin to stop them from slipping. I also use Cabela's snap weight clips and they work pretty well also, but again with braid, you have to wrap them around the clip once to stop them from slipping. They both work very well.

This. (which is what I think BWF meant in his post also)

Default Snap Weight Release

Thanks everyone for your comments. I have tried multiple Offhsore releases and Cabelas version. I like how easily the Cabelas releases attached to the line but I have had these come off as well. I have not tried to loop the line around the release as some have advised. I do that on my boards. I will give that a try. Tight lines!

You can also use a rubber band wrapped on the braid then attach the snap to the band.
