Want to try dropper loops in braid.
Will it slip with 9 wraps? Any suggestions?

Why for?

Standard 5 wraps should be fine.

Saw a video from Rodney showing inline dropper loops for planer rod setup.
He uses 200# power pro mainline with inline dropper loops to mono leader.
Straightforward, simple, setup. No clips no bridle.
Excelant video.
Wasn't too sure about loops with braid cutting into itself.

Splice in the loops don't tie them or your 200# will become 85-90# braid.

Midnight wind has the formula I used. Werewolf0711 uses it as well. I have never had my braid break and I have been using e setup for about 4 years now. For me it is easier to make than the stranded wire bridles I made. Look up midnight's video on YouTube or PM me.

I'd like to see this setup too. Couldn't find Midnight's video on YouTube either.

I have a youtube video for the setup. Search "Fish On Forte" or PhinChaser and you should be able to find it. It's not the best video but it will give you a good idea as to how to rig it up.

Midnight's videos are on this site. Scroll to bottom and look under "how to" videos. It's part of a lecture he did. Larry Rowland's and I think RKForte's videos are there as well.

Larry has an awesome video if you want to do create a bridle with hollow core. It is very thorough.
