Single. I would take the smallest sleeve that will accommodate the wire you are using. Tight fit, then crimp. Which means you may need to buy several sizes to get the fit you want.old thread but what size sleeves for those wires and are the sleeves double or singe barrel sleeves ?
thank you, this helps a lot. How many feet of wire leader for bombs and how many feet for using live bait ?For Knot2Kinky Titanium wire and AFW single barrel sleeves the following will work:
25# wire= #1 crimp sleeve
35# wire= #1 crimp
45# wire= #2 crimp
55# wire= #2 crimp
65# wire= #2 crimp
75# wire=#3 crimp
These #'s work for the "three pass" method although some are very tight. (I think thats good)
65# to bomb after 4 whaoo. (Had to change cause no mylar left). Connected to #1 Spro swivel (330#)View attachment 1202512
55#View attachment 1202514
25# Conected to #5 Owner Pro Parts Round Welded Ring. (114#)View attachment 1202515
Used 45# and 35# to see size difference in sleeve connections.View attachment 1202517
All connections done with Nicopress 17-2&17BA and AFW HI-SEAS crimping tools.View attachment 1202519View attachment 1202520
These have worked well for me. I don't have nearly as much Long Range experience or Wahoo under my belt as most of the guys on here so take this all as just one guys experience and continue to take in other info. I haven't had any of my crimps pull or break on wahoo. However, I did have an instance of breakage from being too lazy to switch my bait rig out during wide open tuna so there is a life span to them or they were just crappy crimp jobs that failed after yanking on too many tuna in a row. Anyway hope at least some of this is helpful.
Good Luck Out There !
