What’s Wrong With This Rig?
Rate yourself as a bit of a rig guru, do ya?! Then take this test to prove your worth (and if you did well, remember to share to show off your new Rig Pro status!)

1) Which of these makes the Claw Rig less effective?

You've chosen to use a rig ring over a piece of silicone to hold the Hair against the hook shank
The shrink tube shape is wrong - it's too aggressive
The uncoated section on the hooklink material is too short

2) Which one of the three answers is the biggest school boy error when tying the Darrell Peck Braid Rig?

You've used a length of shrink tubing
The Hair's tied too long
The Hair leaves the shank at the wrong point

3) Which one of these makes the Spinner Rig less effective?

You've used the wrong type of quick-change swivel - it's not got the ring attached to the swivel
The shrink tube is too long - you've covered almost all of the swivel
The hook pattern’s not right

4) Which one will reduce the effectiveness of your Chod Rig?

The curve is too severe
It’s too long
The hook and bait don’t balance - i.e you've used an 18mm pop-up with a size 8 hook

5) Which one of these three elements will effect the Noodle Rig most?

The shrink tube isn’t the right shape - it's curved too much
It should be tied with a mono hooklink material
The shrink tube is too long

6) What's the biggest mistake you can make with the Clone Rig?

Tie it with the 'D' too small
Tie it with the wrong type of mono - i.e. too supple
Use an in-turned eye hook

7) Which one of these means the MK2 Chod Rig isn't as effective as it could be?

The boom is too long
The boom should be soft, not stiff
The Chod section isn’t meant to be curved

8) Which of these three elements makes the IQ-D Rig less effective?

You should use a coated-braid material, not straight fluorocarbon
The D is too small
You need a beaked-point hook

9) A Zig Rig is ruined by what?

The hook being too big
The Hair being too long
It missing a kicker to help turn the hook quicker

10) Which of these will mess up your Multi Rig?

The looped D Hair is too long
The counterbalance weight isn’t correctly positioned
The hook should be a longshank pattern

11) The Muzza Rig looks all-sorts of wrong, but which of these tweaks will improve it?

The cork plug is on the wrong side of the bait
Nothing, it’s perfect!
The Hair exits too near the eye

12) Which of these is incorrect when it comes to tying the Hinged Stiff Rig?

The Chod section isn’t curved enough
It’d be better with a micro swivel
It needs a ring swivel to help it spin and turn quicker
