I dont know, you shouldnt really be fishing a semi slack line with a line that doesnt sink imo.

. . .mm not sure about that . . .flying back leads are useful when fishing semi slack lines etc (topography permitting) and also when using a bait boat as they drop the leader below the boat ensuring no frap ups in the props etc - you can even reverse the boat if necessary (prior to dropping the rig) without fear of tangles etc

One of the many things invented to solve a problem that doesn’t exist.

Genius..more resistance.less liable to fly up the line as much I'm guessing??

To be honest I've not heard or seen anyone use a flying backlead

in ages..

Or fit the flying backlead the other way round.

Sounds like you've answered your own question there. If you think its un safe it probably is. Can't understand why you want to stop the flying back lead anyway. You say your trying to stop the backlead hitting the tip ring. Just real in slower that should stop it.

I would suggest just pinching on a couple of bits of putty spaced evenly up to 6ft from the lead to keep the line pinned down.

I dont think any crap like that should be on your line. When your line snaps and the end pig tails, that flying backlead or olivette is going to get jammed and potentially snagged up.

nope - they are a lot more aerodynamic meaning that they don't fly up the line as far as the jig head shaped flying backleads.

Wouldn't fishing olivettes in the same situation present the same potential problems?

If you want to make sure that your final few feet of line is sunk and out of the way then get some tungsten tubing and cut into a few 3-4 cm lengths and thread them onto the line above the rest of the tubing and leave them free running.

You will find that they will work in the same way as a flying backlead on a cast and will move up the line a bit but not too far to help weight the last few feet down and keep it on the bottom.

it will keep the rig safe, eliminate the need for the flying backlead and it's nice and cheap too

if you do want to take the flying backlead route then have a look at olivettes used in match fishing - they are a lot more streamlined than usual flying backleads (Jig head style) and don't go up you line as much.

smart move on trying to stop the backlead going up the line - I damaged the tip rings on a couple of my rods when using them and that was from playing a fish, where I couldn't let the line go slack for them to run down it as suggested below.

As IP has said, over around 40yards the line will run along the lakebed anyway, well unless you have your tips pointing almost directly up...

You don't need to pin the line down with a running lead (and a slack line), it pretty much does it itself unless there are major underwater features (bars and troughs) between your end tackle and rod tip, or a big undertow.
If there is a big undertow I wouldn't fish a slack line anyway.

I do use running leads and slack lines quite frequently, and found the best way to get the line down is have your rod tips lower than the rod butts, even below the water surface if possible.
Cast out, and without moving the lead, reel your line tight, with the tip underwater. Pull line off the reel as you put the rod on your buzzers, so it goes slack, touching the bottom of every rod ring. Attach indicator at maximum drop, it will tighten the line, so pull more off until it is slack and dropping straight down from the rod tip. It may take a few minutes of slackening the line as as it sinks it will pull tight again. Eventually it should be straight down and slack again.

Ken T has put up pics of his slack line running rigs on the buzzers.

As for a back bead on the line, sorry, any bead (and/or stop knot) above the lead on a running set-up is a potential tether rig. It only takes the bead to get jammed on the knot, or even full of lakebed detritus or dirt, and the run ring can't come over the breakage. The fish is then trailing line, a lead and a rig.
With no weight pulling on the hook it can be ejected, but a lead does not allow this.

do away with the flying back lead and bead, unnecessary IMO

You'd be surprised how much line lays on the bottom anyway, as long as you are fishing more than 20-30 yards out and not with tips ultra high and heavy bobbins then don't worry about it too much
