could probably just flair out the tip of the pvc with a heat gun and a beer bottle to stop the hooks catching so easily on the way back in - wouldnt be perfect but it would help a bit.

Edit - a beer bottle would be too thick for the sort of pipe you'd use - might I suggest a Sriracha mayonaise bottle instead

You are a never ending source of DIY ideas Larry, thankyou. Just think we have been battling with and dodging those sticky sharp hooks on the sabaki rigs for years. I get tired of unhooking one stuck in the carpet of the boat only to have another stick me in the knee cap. Now is the time to either get my creative juices flowing or simply purchase one and mount an old reel on it.

Yeah little inefficiencies out on the water drive me mad - people with higher tolerances for frustration might just let them slide but I cant handle it.

Thats the motivation behind alot of the dodgy diy I do.

Some things work and others dont - but if I make something that helps the day run a bit smoother - the time and effort are worth it - even if its only a slight benefit.

Just a cheeky little ergonomic pvc mount for the torch
