Default Crimp Question

Hey, I changed all of my trolling rods to 100lb mono top shots. I would like to only keep one crimp on the boat to streamline. I like the double long crimps but am only seeing single crimp for 80-100lb mono.

1. Is a single crimp enough?
2. Does anyone make a quality double long crimp for 80-100lb ?
3. What do you use/ prefer?

Thank you,
Nick

The magic you seek for safely using the one crimps is here. Shhhhh ancient Flemish secret.

I don't crimp 100# shots. Prefer knots - specifically a 5 turn clinch knot that is really wet before it's set. Still waiting on one to fail.

But if you do - absolutely go with short double barrel crimps and burn the tag end to flare it. Use a narrow crimper so both ends are flared after you sink it.

You’ll be fine with the J crimp from Jinkai with chaffing gear.

I always called that an offshore loop. I do that on all my heavier mono loops. But, I've never tucked the tag end back into the crimp.

I use long crimps sized for the line. I just crimp them in two places. Hit them with a black marker and no worries.

I absolutely hate Offshore loops. Does anyone ever notice what happens to them under load. They deform, terribly. Use chafe tube.

As for general crimp selection, use the smallest crimp that will fit the mono you're using. Don't just go by the #'s.

I honestly don't understand the only 1 size crimp rationale. I personally like to be prepared for any situation - problem that may occur & a plastic stowaway box with leader rigging supplies 50# to 300# is always at hand. I will say that for my dedicated rods with wind on swivels & crimps I keep a bag of that size crimps & crimpers handy

On my Wahoo HST setups I use 2 x single crimps next to each other. And of course the tag end melted and chafe tube. Has worked so far.
I was having knots break on the shock load on the hit at high speed (16 -18 Kts)
