too right.....Certain companies really pushing the ronnie/spinner rig..... i wonder why? I counted 9 different items of terminal tackle in one rig! Granted, like some have said certain rigs or components are added to rig to rid a certain problem, but a lot of the time we add a component to solve a problem, which then creates another issue, so we add something else, then something else etc etc far removed from the simple approach/set up.

I agree with you, but for some reason never use a normal hair/ knotless knot

I use multi rigs for everything except zigs where i use a zig aligner

Spot on.. I always know when I'm in the presence of a good and confident angler, same rig and same bait on all rods!
Sure some rig developments do aid the angler, but most are as you state are to sell gear to the masses. Most rigs are a variant of previous incarnation, it was only the other day Joe Turnbull put out a video of a rig I used in the 90's which I copied from Andy Little, the only difference was it is now blobbed rather than superglued...if only I knew then what I know now and all that.

Just seen an article on the net. Cherry carp. Rig mechanics by Martin Crackoff. Quite an interesting article but can this be his real name?

I think a big problem is the desperate desire of anglers in the media and anglers working for manufacturers to "invent/design a rig they can claim as their own. There are a handful of generic rigs and the rest are hype around miniscule changes.

Take an uncoated braid with a hook tied on with a knotless knot giving a hair.
It can be fished running, in line, heli or lead clip, the hair can be any material, any length fixed or sliding. The braid can be 15lb to 60lb. It can be heavy sinking or normal braid. It can be 3ins to 15 ins or more if you fish it concertina stlyle. You can add a line aligner, shot, putty. You can attach it with a swivel, figure 8 loop, qc swivel. You can fish any bait, any hook size or pattern. You can stiffen it with PVA. You can fish it with any weight or pattern of lead or feeder.
It is still a simple braid hooklength tied knotless knot style.
Let's just keep it simple and do our own thing
Remember the KISS principle.
Keep it simple stupid.

What always puzzles me is, in the past you chose a rig on a variety of criteria, lake substrate, bait, fish size, fishes perceived cuteness etc now it seems most just use what's blindly advertised on YouTube or social media. I'd say 95% of my fishing is with a spliced slip D, semi balanced bait and either a semi stiff hinge rig or Withy for pop ups.
Like bait, chopping and changing rigs is basically down to a lack of confidence, as mentioned look at the successful named anglers, they use one rig and one bait... put in the right spot and you will catch.

The hair is a great rig for bottom baits, over the top of crud, not so great as a for instance...

There is an element of tackle companies coming up with new components to sell to anglers to make a few quid, thing is, some of the kit is really helpful to get over a specific problem.

As has been said, originally rigs were advanced or developed to deal with a situation.
Both Rod Hutchinson's sliding (extending) hair and the D rig developed by Roger Smith were to deal with finicky takes at Savay after the standard hair rig presentation got sussed.
The Withy Pool rig, developed at Withy Pool to deal with fish taking cautiously at Withy Pool.

Possibly or Probably from the hair, the greatest advancement has been Jim Gibbinson's line aligner.

I'm sure that a standard hook tied to hooklink with a decent hair and line aligner will continue to catch. The knotless knot is handy and easy, probably the easiest way to attach your hook to the hooklink.
That knotless knot hook and hair with line aligner has for a number of years been my standard presentation. I use something different at times, but I keep going back to it, and I still catch.

Put your rig in the right place, get your bait and baiting (feeding) situation right, concentrate on that rather than faffing with rigs.

However the standard knotless knotted rig does not sell magazines or tackle...😖

Most rigs are born out of resolving a specific problem / issue or for making like convenient / speed of change etc. They end up in the carp rags and people spend money blindly . . .

I too generally also only use 3x rigs

Wafters - Fluro D Rig
Bottom bait - Coated braid combi (a la TH bottom bait rig)
Pop ups - Slip D / Ultimate rig

Do sometimes use braid 'only' if fishing short hooklink in PVA bags etc for any of the above three hookbaits . . most of the time the wafter fluoro D covers most fishing situations . . .rarely use pop-ups full stop

Itís no coincidence that new rigs are usually invented by the companies that sell the components!

I have 3 rigs that cover 99% of my fishing.

Chod
Stiff hinge (chod + boom)
Simple bottom bait rig, usually a curve shank hook, knot less knot and a small piece of silicone to trap the hair on the shank.

I use a heli set up meaning I can adjust the top bead as necessary.

Only real exception is solid bags.

Yes unless there is a good reason regarding presentation my usual hooklength is 4-10ins uncoated braid, wide gape hook and knotless knot.

I agree with what your saying,
Caught all my fish last season using Terry's bottom bait rig, pretty simple rig.
