If you want the bent butt to fish the same setups as the straight get the short one. If you get a long one it’s way longer than straight and won’t work with the same harness or chair positions.

Yes that will be fine.

Iím not a fan of loop-to-loop. Hereís a very informative video of a splice and serve technique. Easy to do and not very bulky.

Why does it cost less to get a new one than it does to get rid of the old one?

The old one is just going to be re-purposed by some idiot anyway, so why the huge recycling fee?
