Stripping Basket Cones... tubular dude
In my quest for simplicity and function, not to mention price - the search for a cone to keep line in order in the basket seems to have come to an end, or at least until the field test proves otherwise.
I recently tested the concept of tubes cut at a sharp angle placed on the bottom of the basket and the results were phenomenal. Thus I went out and picked up some plastic durable tubing to take the theory to phase II.
The cones are simply angular cuts of tubing (or solid cylinder but why not hollow) positioned so that:
1) the straight side faces the middle of the basket
2) all slopes angle outward from the center
3) minimal area remains uncut only at the base of the frustum (there's that word again)
