a friend uses the size 5 TA straight eye and it balances a 13mm crushed cork thing that mark does, but I think making rigs specific to a hookbaits is a mistake, I like my intended bait to be just over buoyant and trim down as opposed to try and match hook to finished bait personally, as they all vary a bit.

gardner trick link and thinking anglers think link are another level but I'd have a soft spot for amnesia booms, weirdly I've never liked it with a knotless knot though? 25lb version I used ot use

A plain braid knotless knotted line aligned hooklink with a Gardner Mugga or Solar 101, usually a size 4.

Ok if your fishing over a clean bottom. Personally use the slip d and German. Mainly use a semi stiff coated braid like esp tungsten loaded hooklink

Iím also a big fan of the longer d-rig. A decent mono or flouro, an out turned eye hook and a ring and youíre sorted.

I've done well on simple long d rigs

used germans, noodles etc, they all work I try to match the rig to the baiting scenario I have infront of me

After 35 years carping the German is the only bottom bait rig I use now. 15lb Tungskin or the Turbo with a stiff Flouro depending how clean the bottom is.

The thing that catches most out isn't the rig its the bait, some wafters are just too light, big fish displace a lot of water just moving in for a feed, the hook never ends up in front of them, I overweight pop ups for the same reason. Again after 35 years of trying everything I only use either the HSR or the Ronnie now, hook link's as above.
Only use the one hook pattern to, hand sharpened Muggers only in a 4.

All bases covered with hook beads, hook swivels, one type of hook two types of hook link, swivels and a spool of bait floss, amazing how simplicity clears the mind and increases confidence.

Multi rig with no hinge, so essentially a d rig where yiu can change the hook. I now use some variation of the multi rig for all of my carp fishing wether it be bottom bait, wafter or popup, saved me loads in hooklength materials

I was a massive fan of the German rig up until recently going back to a blowback rig with a coated braid with a section stripped back. The hook holds are so much better and seem to get a lot more pick ups with the blowback not knocking the German just canít see me going back to it anytime soon
