Always used to use green sink tube for all my bottom fishing until earlier this year when i first tried leadcore. Both have their advantages, sink tube seems to work better on weedy waters, i usually camoflage it a bit more with permanent marker pen. But leadcore seems to be the best on gravel and weed free waters. Both are great as it does pin your line to the bottom and help hide your rigs.
Anyone else think the same as me???

Checkbook and pen......again!!!!

Always use sink tube but only fish a few local waters. May have to purchase some leadcore then. <!-- s:idea: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_idea.gif" alt=":idea:" title="Idea" /><!-- s:idea: -->

BUMP:oops:
Always use sink tube or shock leaders never leadcore as worried about its safetly. As for which one is better it all depends on what bottom you are fishing on and what rig or method you are using. :D

Interesting subject this one, when i started carp fishing many moons ago i started out using sink tube myself and thought it was great stuff i only used it in 1 foot lengths but it seemed to do it's job at the time, but as i moved up through my carp fishing apprenticeship i changed on to leadcore which also does it's job perfectly and is very versatile in regards to different lead setups etc.... when it comes to fish safety i have personally never had any issues with it and find as long as your lead can be shed easily enough if necessary then in my opinion it's pretty safe. I guess there is a element of danger in everything we use potentially you just have to be careful &amp; do your best to make it as safe as possible.

Use leadcore 95% of the time now. Still use sink tube but only for fishing the method or sometimes when fishing on top of blanketweed with a solid bag. Use both brown and green sinktube and still camo them slightly more with a marker pen to try and breakdown the site of it to the carp that little bit more. Both do there job but still wouldnt call one better than the other.

been a leadcore guy for some years now. Can't even remember the last time I used rig tubing, thinking about struggling to thread it on my line now is just making me cringe.

The only downside i can see to using it but yeah very stressful sometimes.
