I donít use crimps but blob the tag end on everything, it only takes a second and if itís the 0.1% that puts even one fish a decade extra on the bank, that will do for me. No mucking around when fishing waters where the number of bites a year could be counted on one hand, or two if youíre lucky. Why wouldnít you do it..? 👍

The amnesia is £5 for 100m and it will pull straight and is more knot friendly than most other materials.

I use 20lb IQ2 for this and a simple 4/5 turn blood knot (tag blobbed) has never let me down. Tighten down the tag end first, having wetted the whole knot with spit, and you wont get any pigs tails in the link

I want to use amnesia to make a semi stiff hooklength and finish off as a ronnie rig.
Im happy to just knot it, so what breaking strain would be most suitable.
Im thinking maybe 20lb.

I was only stating that in a carp fishing situation I've never had one go and I reuse the booms for ages without blobbing. Same as I never had a knot on any other hooklink snap. If you tie both correctly , you should never get any snapping unless your pulling for a break. Or maybe im just lucky.

Not saying its 100% snap proof , you cannot say that about anything but just giving my experience and I say you don't need to blob or shrink the crimp for carp fishing.

I am sure that most pike anglers have had a crimp give way on a wire trace at some time, and it is a worrying thought about leaving a pike to die sewn up on a deep treble.

For years sea anglers have been crimping Amnesia on hooklinks or traces, and I can personally say, sometimes it DOES give way; the lead or hook snagging up on the sea bed rubbish, rocks, coral, lost or discarded nets. One night at Shingle Street I lost three traces in three casts on what we eventually found out to be a lost trawl net.

Personally I use Amnesia for boom sections, or as part of a combi-rig, and I knot it with a Rapala loop knot or blood knot to the swivel. An overhand knot with the braid uni knotted up and through it to the supple section works for me.
Even that can give way, so check it every cast and after every fish.

Amnesia booms 10 years plus, never had the boom go. Very good material 👍

Had no problems with crimps using 30lb amnesia and boom
Tested the Gardner trick link 0.5 as well no problems at all
Also found blobbing the tag end made no difference during testing as itís the other
End that starts to slip under load before finally giving way
Iím talking extreme pressure
Used the Korda and the crimps of eBay , both good👍🏻

Donít get me wrong I donít catch enough to use the same boom over and over again
I just change it all when I feel the hooks had enough

Iíve never had one fail but I got to agree it might happen one day, i how ever do exactly what you said. I blob the tag end itís just something I do on everything just to be sure. It donít take long and gives me extra security

You're talking rubbish mate - how many fish have you had on one leader, 20, 30, 300? Took around 30 fish on the same leader for a mate of mine to have one fail him - yep... shi t happens. Anyway, trying to explain crimping to carp anglers seems to be lie trying to teach a cat to play the piano. Thanks and good night

Shrink tube just makes it nice and tidy. Did I really have to spell that out? LOL.

You guys really need to speak to some experienced pike anglers, who use crimps habitually. Mark my words, just because you have not had a connection fail, doesn't mean it is not going to happen. Pal of mine had one go on him and also kept bleating on about not having any issues... guess what? He now blobs the tag end. Why risk it? Takes seconds to blob the tag end and so make zero sense not to do it. You might not have had a puncture in 20 years or ever, but I bet you always have a spare wheel or repair kit in the car... belt and braces!

People need to look harder as well - plenty of online chit chat about the crimp slipping... and testing by hand, come on, don't make me
