I've run them. The concept is great, but they are a little tough to run by yourself. Kind of a handful. Much easier for me to put out a dipsy.The guy that designed them told me that I should at least use 20lb mono for the main line.
You'll find a little piece of vinyl tubing and a spring that comes with your lite bites. The spring is to be used with mono and the vinyl tubing is for braids or wire. Hope that helps.
