For those that use a shooting head system, what's your favorite running or shooting line?

Hi Brian!

First and foremost thanks for your interest in sponsorship of the Forum!

So tell me about this running line... it's hollow? Interesting, how do you set it up for connections?

Juro, most of the Euros tie it on to the back of the head with a clinch knot. Personally I double it back over itself and secure the loop with twin 20# maxima nailknots. In smaller sizes this process is fragile so I just nail knot the running line to the head which makes for a clean connection.
