This ingenious system revolutionised fishing with helicopter rigs, as it meant that leads could consistently be discharged as soon as you hooked a fish, whenever the situation meant that this was essential.
As well as dropping the lead when you are fishing in very weedy or snaggy situations, it is also popular with anyone using a chod rig, where ejecting the lead increases your chances of landing a fish, especially at long range where a heavy lead is being used.
There is also the option though to fit a small plastic collar (supplied) which fixes the lead in place, for use in situations where dropping it isn’t necessary, but you still want the versatility that the Heli-Safe System offers.
It can be used in conjunction with leaders – such as any ring swivel leader in our Dark Matter or Kable Leadcore ranges, which can be adapted to fit the Heli-Safe bead – or with a naked set-up with your main line straight through to it.
Heli-Safe System works perfectly in conjunction with our Leadcore Chod Safety or Naked Chod Safety systems.
Each pack contains two Heli-Safe beads, in a choice of green or brown, along with all the bits you need to make it work – including instructions.
