Breakaway Relay Clips
Relay clips were the beginning of the modern cascade rigs. They are now used in most trace designs (an original idea by Nigel Forrest). These are still used in large numbers by rig makers. Both as intermediate bait clips or cascade clips with an impact shield or lead as the master release. When used as a cascade type clip, it’s better to cut off the spigot, which is used with rubber to grip the trace line, and fix with crimps or sliding knots. Also used in up-and-over rigs.
