    I'm wondering if these would actually be good in frozen ground due to the small-ish diameter?

    I'll get some eventually to try. Figure 9s, LineLocs, Flyz...I like trying different things.

    Nothing wrong with overlapping, but snaps are nice to add some room. Getting it sealed up then pulling that out to a point sort of gives a beak effect. TONS of room with my 12' SLD Winter Haven.
