How did u crimp the loops? Is that a standard ferrule?

I was going to do something very similar.. basically Waxon's idea, with phone handset cords.

Its a jet ski kill switch but they sell the crimps at home depot I saw them when I was making another phone cord sounds like a good idea the only thing with that is it will strecth really easy and then it will be just a cord no recoil to it

This would have saved my crucial dropshot rod & stradic reel yesterday... : (

1st newb tuber mistake, bound to happen sometime...

To look at it positively, it was one less thing I had to carry back to the truck....
I was hoping that would have cheered me up a bit...
nope! Crying or Very sad

While fishing the SBS last saterday night i was netting a grump of a fish for my teamate, he starts yelling "your rod"!! i look over at my rod and it was sinking... My 400te/calcutta rod down to the abyss, we tried with treble hooks with no luck!! Last night, 4 days later we hit the spot one more time to see if we can get it. After 20 minutes i called it off but my buddy said one more cast," i said why not" he starts yelling im hooked up, i look over he hooked my braided line and out comes my rod/reel!! F'n AWESOME.....
