Rig beads, sleeves & clips
Like many parts of the carp rig system, you can also make the lead system as simple and complex as you want. A widely used system for the lead is the lead clip system. With this system you can easily connect a swivel lead to the lead clip and then you can attach a sleeve, also called tail rubber. With this system you can quickly and easily change lead and much more importantly; when the line breaks at a drill, the carp can easily lose the lead when it is still attached to the rig.
Beads are used for all kinds of carp rigs like the helicopter rig. They are often made of plastic or rubber so that they do not cause any damage. The beads ensure that a swivel remains in place and prevents any tangle of the carp rig.
