Hard spots for stiffer stuff. Soft booms for soft stuff

Thanks for all the replies . I have ordered some Korda boom material in 25lb to have a play with . Just wondering if there are any circumstances that you wouldn’t use the stiffer boom material as opposed to a softer coated material , thanks.

Couldn't agree more. Despite having all the bits to crimp my own I bought a few packs of the Gemini products, the Turbo German, Ronnie and Combi.
This was over a year ago now, the quality is superb, far neater than a crimp and very strong. No need for meter's and meter's of Boom and all the other bits, only ever have to change the hook.

Going to give the leaders a crack as my water is gin clear.

Honestly once you use the gemini booms you wont go near a self made boom again. they last for ages and pretty reasonable too.

Boom by Korda has been working really well for me lately, really neat with crimps at either end

I have had a look at the Gemini booms they look tidy I just simply like doing my own rigs, depends but generally a stiff fluoro like boom krimped or hybrid stiff krimped if I want something softer I do like pb jelly wire

What is everyone using for the boom section on their Ronnie rigs ? I currently use thinking anglers tungskin but wondered whether a stiffer boom might be more effective, thanks .
