Is anybody running steel backed with 19 strand off a board? Sounds like this combo should only be run off the back of the boat unless you're adding sections of braid too.

There may be a problem with the wire getting damaged by the clips. Mathew of Torpedo recognizes this and suggests using rubber bands.

From the clip to the rod tip, if I run copper line on planer boards I get alot of sag in the line . It drags the water,so I run a measured amount ( 300') copper & I run mono from the clip to the rod . Won't I have the same problem using steel line behind weighted steel line?  Thanks

I figured the wire would get damaged eventually. Maybe heat shrink that doubles as a distance marker? Not too keen about the wire running out to the board either. Would like to hear if anyone else has been able to do this without losing tackle!
