Another use for sleeves
May 7, 2020
I no longer do much fishing but I found a little different use for the sleeves.

I used them in my hobby with some 90 pound test mono to serve as rigging on a model sailboat I am building.

There are other small items of terminal tackle used on models as well. They are kept in a divided plastic tackle box also purchased from Tackle Direct..

I've used Jinkai sleeves for all my Long Range trips without a single failure. They work best with the Jinkai crimpers.

Crimp sleeve

I use these crimps with the SC-3 crimping tool and they hold great. I did a pull test on my leaders to compare against hand tied knots and the crimps won every time.

Absolutely the best. There is no need to look any further. Pair them up with some Jinkai line and your all set.

Have not had a chance to use these but if they are as good as other jinkaii sleeves that I have used they will be great.

I cant get the LI crimps to look right with 130lb fluorocarbon,making pin rigs. currently using sc-3 jinkai crimper with the crimp in the center slot. everytime I crimp hard enough to hold the line the crimps are squeezed and it is causing a sharp square finish on the edges. do I need a different crimper or crimps. im using the LI with just mono then a afw copper 1.6crimp on the pin double mono conection. Pleas help!! thanks jeff

Should not crimp all the way to the edge. Leave flared on each side. If you could send in a picture of what is happening @ sales@tackledirect.com
