Hack #1: Wrap pre-tied leaders or sabiki rigs around your foam coozie

Just stick the hooks in the coozie, wrap the line around it, and secure it.

This will save you from a lot of line tangles and headaches!

Hack #2: Store hooks and lures in your foam coozie

This is an easy way to keep the lures you plan on using often close by without having to dig into a tackle box to get them.

Just dig the hook into the top of the koozie and put the lure inside of it.

Hack #3: Use foam coozies as a float for your gear

These coozies are pretty buoyant, so you can tie tools like pliers and fish grips to them without worrying about them sinking.

Hack #4: Use your neoprene coozie as a glove

If you need to grab braid or leader, you don’t want to worry about it cutting into your hand, and you don’t have gloves, wrapping your neoprene coozie around your hand is a great alternative.

Hack #5: Store your spools of leader in a coozie

This makes it easy for you to pull out leader without it getting all over the place.

It works with both types of spools.

I use the black pipe insulation that looks like a pool noodle for storing my leaders and rigs. Cut into a foot/storage box length. I put toothpicks into the foam to hook the swivels/loops on, wrap the line around then insert the hook into the foam. I group types of rigs on different foam noodles.

Great ideas, and I certainly have an abundance of koozies. I use sections of noodles, pool floats, for storing hooks. Also wrap my connection for my kayak battery cable extension with a noodle section.

Nice Video Tony. I’ve been using the thin Koozies for some time on my leader materials. I do it a little differently… I cut the Koozie to the width of the spool. I then have my wife run the seam where it is connected together on her sewing machine. I found after cutting them they can start to come apart. I then cut a hole in the middle of the “band” and slip the tag end through it and then place it around the spool. I can get multiple spool covers from one Koozie, and they are easier to store.

Don’t forget the sewing the seam…. they will come apart in most cases if you do not. I first tried glue, but it gets stiff and does not hold up as well.

Another great use for them is to keep your beer or soda cold. Just slip the can right into the top of the koozie and you’re ready to go.
In all seriousness, the line holding hacks will be implemented in short order, great idea!

I have a few things I want to ask you guys / wanted to share
1:Cheaper rods vs expensive rods like an ugly stik vs st croix
2:Split shots vs rubber core sinkers
3: shorter vs longer tag ends in knot strength
4: cinching knots with water vs saliva vs keeping knot in water while cinching it
5:Try nanofil for casting distance contests
6: Who makes the best split rings
7: review Piscifun line spooler
Somethings i wanted to share
1:When using say a palomar knot if your using a lure with a small eye before you cut the tag end put it back through the eye going the other way can help make it weedless also i did some testing and pinching it and threading it through on mono and fluorocarbon did weaken it
2: when tying a knot since you watched tackle advisors modified alberto knot video ive started to really stress all my knots after gloving up and they perform even better (stress it and slowly add more pressure on the mainline right before cutting tag end ( pulling on tag end breaks it)
3: braid palomar vs braid uni as when you guys tested it it won the first time and lost the four other times and since they are very similar in strength I think there was something you did that made your braid palomar knot win
4: while i like both fluorocarbon and mono i saw a test where fluorocarbon abrasion resistance was better then mono so it makes me think it depends on which fluorocarbon and mono you use( source = https://sunlineamerica.com/fishing-with-fluorocarbon-why-use-fluorocarbon/)
Please and thank you for reading and testing
Sorry for asking so much but you guys seem like the right people to ask

I use coozie for my Sputnik Weights. I do a lot of surf fishing, and this keeps my Sputniks from snagging.

I use the thin coozies as a reel cover. I slip one over the spool to protect and secure the line. Snip a couple slits in the coozie to pull it past the bail attachment points. Depending on the shape & size of the gear housing of your reel you can use a second coozie to protect it during transport.

Note: When using as a float for equipment – test it first! Hate to see that pair of pliers “parachuting” down to the bottom because the flotation capacity of the “float” is not up to the weight of what you connected to it…. Yes I have done that!
