I splice a loop both ends - can loop to loop onto any type of swivel - I use it with heli-safe too.

It means all my leaders are 'universal' - I can use them for any type of set up.

I'd splice the swivel or fitting to the end normally.

Get yourself one of the fox slicing needles, looks a bit weird but much easier than a gate latch needle IMO.

You can splice it or just strip a couple of inches of lead out and tie it to the lead, snap link etc. Just a 2 or 3 turn blood knot holds it fine.

This is going to sound like the most ridiculous question to most people I'm sure but here we go.

I've never used leadcore before (always been banned on waters I've fished) but my new club allow it and it probably needs to become part of my arsenal for the way I'll be fishing (staying agile on day sessions and moving on to the fish).

There's plenty of videos out there showing how to splice the leadcore on to the mainline but I don't think I've seen anything on how you attach the other end? In my case it will probably be to a Korda Heli safe but may also be to a drop off in line lead for pva bags. Is it as simple as removing some of the lead then tying a grinner knot with the outer material?

I'm sure it's really simple and logical just not had to do it before!
