    9/16" tubing, I think any smaller and it might go thru the roller.

    Hey Jeff- Glad to hear your balls are still intact.

    Why didn't you put the tubing right above the ball? Are you not using your swivel as your stop? I use my tuna cord to braid knot as my stop, the tubing is just there to keep someone from using the green knob on the last few feet. I finally uploaded my video. See the link below.

    This was really fun to watch slowed down to .25/speed.

    I'm having a busy day at work, obviously...

    I run a 3' length of tuna cord. The swivel at the top od the cord is where I attach my release and I put a Dummy Flasher off the ball.
