Gemini Juno bait clips

Being a bit of a clumsy sod, I became a fan of first the Gemini splashdown leads and now the splashdown solo lead links.
When these Gemini Juno bait clips came out, I though I'd give them a try.
Truth be told, I bought them last year, made a couple of rigs up but never went fishing!

There are 3 components to the clip, pictured here:

With instructions on how to assemble them on the back of the packet:

Theres a short youtube vid here, showing how they work:



The instructions on my packets didn't mention the top crimp shown in the video. I found that without it, the top pin can be very fiddly to replace, even in a warm bright living room, let alone a cold dark beach.
The extra crimp made all the difference,it stops the locating pin from slipping out of the bottom section. I emailed Gemini about this and got a reply to say that they had discovered this too, so perhaps the newer instructions show the top crimp/stopknot?


I decided to give them a whirl last week at the Gynn Wall and although I never caught any fish on that rig, the bait clips behaved faultlessly, holding the hook before and during casting even if the line was slack, and releasing every time.

Suffice to say that I am satisfied with them.

Do you mean the splashdown solos? I use those but if you are using multi hook rigs, they are not so good.
Or do you mean something else?
