In lines are no problem and I think less inclined to tangle if used right. Tail rubber on top of the lead. Anti tangle sleeve below the lead. Set it up drop off if you like.

I make my zig baits from my own pop up mix. Usually do a one egg mix, then halve it; one mix then gets yellow dye, the other black. I tend to only sweeten the baits and don't bother with flavours. I roll out small pop ups of 8 to 10mm and then when I use them, just cut each one in half to get a yellow top and black lower half. Caught me fish everywhere I use them. Very simple and frankly zig fishing isn't complicated, so why do people try and make it complicated baffles me.

Thanks for confirming.

Iím about to join a lake as a member. A rule states not to use foam for zig rigs. So what else can you use that floats and isnít plastic or foam?

Regarding safety systems, many places do not want fixed rigs. To my understanding a fixed rig is where the lead is connected/tied directly to mainline therefore no way for the lead to unclip or eject.

How does one get around this with zig fishing? The lead is tied directly to with no way of ejecting the lead, from video tutorials I have seen. Or, should a lead clip be used for zigs as well?

TIA

Yes. I've only really used pop ups and foam.
Will try some different offerings also this year to try and up my game.

Fake corn, 12mm pop ups, bits of Cork, fake dog biscuits, zig bugs, critters and different coloured foam. All work at different times. Try them all.

the usual zig foam is quite small and refined, but I've heard of people catching on whopping great chunks of foam and size 4 hooks!

Sounds about right mate, I saw the Fox one yesterday and that's the same size as the one you've bought.
