The original CV safety rig

CV safety carp rig

Well after a previous post indicating how to make the “CV Safety Rig” with lead core I thought I would show you how it was meant to look. As I have now found a reliable source for “the bit” ( the black piece of curved metal in the pic above) I though I would make one up to show you all how it should look. Come back later for an in depth look at how to make one of these rigs from the components.

Note that this is the only time is it acceptable to super glue a bead to lead core, and if you make one from the picture above note that you only superglue the bottom bead. The top bead should be free to move and should slide freely over the join from leadcore to your mainline.
