The Grip Release allows the line with the hook to separate from the line with the weight when a fish bites, so you can use the rod to retrieve just the fish, and not the weight also.
The snap hook is on the weight side, and the fishing line is gripped between the soft yellow pads. Variable release tension is attained by moving the line in or out of the jaws.
• Attaches to the weight, or is positioned above it
• Leader with stacking self-locating snap hook
• Patented "tension adjuster" doubles the holding power if needed
• Streamlined design won't snag on weeds or foul lines
