Gemini Springy Fixed Grip Sinkers,
The Fixed grip wires give the maximum amount of grip because of the distance of the grip wire from the mass of the sinker, and are consequently least suitable for casting. They are therefore mainly used from piers and boats where the tidal flow is strong, but because of the height of the fisherman from the sea bed, they can be virtually lifted out of position and are not required to be dragged across a large expanse of obstacle strewn shallow water upon retrieval. However, given the right conditions they are suitable for casting.
The fixed grip wires are straight when you get them and can be bent to the required shape. We consider the curved shape illustrated on this page to be the optimum for gripping power, but the choice is yours!
Also, the wires can be cut shorter and/or the sleeving removed to alter the dynamics of the sinker as required.
Unlike standard fixed grip wire sinkers (that sit in the your tackle box and become entangled with last weeks sandwiches and spare line!), one of the great advantages of all the System 100+ fixed grip wire heads is that after use, it can be unscrewed and folded away.
