Potential. The Ronnie 100% works with bottom baits. 5 fish during a testing session, all absolutely nailed.

I found exactly the same with this rig, size 6 angling iron curve with a 12mm pop up has done 15 landed from 15 with almost perfect hook holds everytime, mates have used with 15mm pop ups and lost a few, does anyone use the ronnie with 15mm cork balls and size 4ís ? How are the hook holds with this setup.

I always use a bait screw on my Ronnies, especially given a few waters I fish have regggies - worth noting that you need to match bait size to hook sizes - when I first used them I was tying a size 6 to fish a 15mm pop-up - was occasionally getting done on that, then switched to a size 4 and it was nailing them - with the size 6, it works with a 12mm pop up. I much prefer a hing ringe for pop ups, but ronnies are useful - given you can use them with stringers or mesh bags - giving you a low-level pop up with some feed close to the hook bait. I only use them with pop ups though, there's much better presentations for wafters or bottom baits that a ronnie...

I had my best season using the Ronnie for the first time a few seasons ago, all fish caught (and well hooked) using bottom baits with a fake piece of corn topper. I see the technical possibility mentioned below, but fish with confidence using a bottom bait, I also used to do well with the Withy Pool rig fishing bottom baits 👍

I disagree, the hinge on a Ronnie creates the potential for the rig to double back on itself and tangle if used with a heavy bait. The turbo German gets round this.

The German rig is a stiff rig. The flexi ring on the ronnie means it has a hinge and is not the same.

The ronnie can 100% be used with bottom baits of wafters. The 'turbo german' is essentially just a ronnie with a bottom bait on it!

The Ronnie is specifically designed to be used with pop ups

There is a rig very similar to the Ronnie that is designed for use with bottom baits/wafters - google the 'turbo german rig'

The main different is the removal of the ring so it doesn't have a 'hinge'.

1. never used anything but pop ups personally, but believe buoyant baits are recommended over bottom baits. May not be the most efficient hooker on bottom baits, but i cant see why it 100% wouldnt work.

2. Bait screws are used on them, but you wont see them used by korda sponsored anglers for example, because korda dont sell them. I dont personally use them, but others do

I have a couple of questions on the Ronnie Rig.

1. Can you use a Ronnie Rig with a bottom or wafter bait?
2. Is there a reason that bait crews are not used on the Ronnie Rig?

Thanks in advance.
