Tackle & Technique

For the connection to the steel cable, the more sensitive mono leader is protected by a stainless steel thimble and the eyelet is crimped with an aluminum sleeve matching its diameter. Special crimping pliers are used to crimp the sleeves with different sized holes. When pressing, it should be ensured that the sleeve is inserted with the appropriate fit to avoid crushing the soft mono material. Depending on sleeve length and plier type, one to three adjacent pressings are sufficient. However, the ends of the sleeves should always protrude from the edge of the pliers and not be pressed into the mono material. © J. Oeder Lure-Fischen
