Is a roller tip required for copper line ?

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone :

Been trolling for salmon and trout for a few years now , catch a few miss and few. But always luv to be out mostly with my daughter.

I want to get into a bit of copper line use for the times when they are in that upper 20-30 FOW.


Just curious if a roller tip is required or just beneficial to using copper between braid and fluorocarbon line.


I'm thinking that kinking line might be a issue.


also recommendations of a chart for depths for the above mentioned line set up.


I'd really appreciate your expertise on these questions.


Could be more questions ...lol


Thank you !

What Gambler said. Also, go with the weighted steel, way easier to work with than copper, though you do really need to go to super braid before you can attach a flouro leader.

Torpedo Weighted steel much more user freindly then copper . Check out Youtube videos. Some captains running no copper just weighted steel.

Vision Quest Sportfishing, Wet Net Fishing charters and Torpedo Fishing products all have good videos on setting up and using weighted steel. All on Youtube

Bills bait put a different tip on for me looks great looks like a door stop 

Sounds like you got a twilli tip. Not needed for copper or steel but needed for stranded wire setups
