Hope you don't mind I had a gentleman Marvin Morgan contact me about his Lowrance chirp finder. He like most other are confused trying to read the manual and understand it. I gave him your name since your the best versed on the subject I don't think you'll mind but if you do I apologize..

Slip-I use a  bead between the bottom of my slip floats to cushion the blow it receives  from banging against the split shot when hook setting and/or  popping the float . Those plastic float stems don't split since I've done that .

Nice Grips but they are larger then most of my catches :).  Did you have any luck with tenkara this year.
