My experiences for what its worth:
Rotters can snag and don't always release
Canny links great in calm weather but can tangle and don't always release in cross wind
I have found combination of Imp and upturned Gemini link best
Also sometimes use 66lb braid and 40lb rotten bottom, seems to me the best of both worlds ?
Thoughts ?

Good info there mate,can you buy them canny links anywhere???


Most tackle shops sell them, if you cant find any theres plenty places online that sell them like veals;

Good concept but find they unclip quite alot, i prefere imps with a little basic rotten bottom on like in pic 3 ( They very rarely unclip and I have never had a lead come off during the cast even when swinging the lead.

would just like to add one thing to this, sometimes its not the sinker that's gets you snagged, its your hook, so hook choice can be pretty important to, depending on the venue you are fishing, as for the rotten bottom choice, I make my own with gripper wire and beads, copying from the ones Bill Bradley made year and years ago, very safe for power casting and have never failed to release the sinker
