Was tying a bunch of new rigs tonight to replace some I've lost, was wondering what weight line yall use when tying Capps & Coleman rigs? If you don't mind what size tri swivel and what type hooks do you use also? Tied mine with 15 lb Andy clear mono, #8 tri swivel and eagle claw 214 EL hooks size 2 with 3/4 oz weight.:rolleyes:

I tie mine with 6 lb hi - vis, # 2 hooks or 1/16 ounce jigs. I use both 1/2 and 3/4 oz weights.

No finesse here, I use 8 to 12 lb line, depending on what is on sale at Wal Mart. You gonna get hung up a lot, so LP is needed sometimes.;)

I use a stiff abrasion resistant 20 lb line. This stiffer line helps hold the top hook out away from the top bent wire arm which I make.
