From top to bottom: First generation, second generation, third generation, fourth generation.
The first generation of the Chod Rig used Amnesia as a hooklink material and a stiff Hair.
The second generation uses ESP Stiff Bristle Filament and a hook with an out-turned eye, D-Rig style.
The next stage on is also known at the ‘Mk2 Chod’. This utilises a very small and stiff boom section.
And where we are today: features an aggressive curve in the hooklink. A small loop knot is used for it to sit straight.
