The Drop Out Chod Clips are basically preformed ’C’ shaped clips that deform at a given force. Each packet contains a full sprig of clips that has 12 pieces of each of the two weight rated clips.

  • Light clip release pressure = approx. 3lb
  • Heavy clip release pressure = approx. 6lb

We recommend that the thinner (lighter) clip should be used for fishing with leads at short to medium range; whilst the thicker (heavier) gauge clip is ideal for longer range applications.

Incorporating the clip on your leader is simple. Just follow these easy step by step instructions or check out the inside of the card supplied with the Drop Out Chod Clips:

  • Splice a large ring on the end of your Leader. Either the ring from a Flexi Ring Swivel or a Covert Q-Ring are perfect.
  • Create a safe Chod/Helicopter rig using your normal components. **
  • Incorporate a Silicone SleeveCovert Buffer Bead or a Tail Rubber to slide down and sheath the ring and Chod Clip before casting. This will keep the lead from simply bouncing/falling out the clip during the cast or as the lead hits the surface of the water.
  • Hook the lead onto the Chod Safety Clip and mount on ring and sheath with Silicone Sleeve or a Tail Rubber.

In practice these clips have proven absolutely superb – only ditching the lead when they have too due to the build of weed and they offer a far safer way of fishing chod rigs and helicopters in thick weed than ever before!

Please note, just like any ‘weak link’ arrangement please be sensible in this products use! You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to realise cracking off leads can be dangerous.

Take your time to test them and experiment to see how they perform with your own casting styles and equipment. They are not made for use with big leads at long range.
