Duh I knew that; senior moment. TIA


most of joshes floatlines have a shackle on one end ,remove it , put the cluch on the line , put the shackle back on. if you have have welded rings on both ends you will have to cut one off and replace it with a shackle
Mahalo, this is the info i sought.

Re: Floatline clutch

Got to play with the clutch the other day. Great design and very simple.

On the other hand I ordered a float line from josh in anticipation of using the clutch but the line came with two welded rings. I guess I shouldn't have assumed but I thought since he sells the clutch he would put a shackle on one end of the float lines (I do understand the way he sent it is strongest). This is a relatively new product so if you do not order them at the same time (float line and clutch), or add a float line later you might want to specify a shackle on one end and safe yourself the time.

Re: Floatline clutch

I'm thinking of getting one to use on a 100' floatline that I'd use at around 60' for reefing (with the rest coiled up)... And 100' for blue water work.

Anyone else doing the same or think this'd work?

Re: Floatline clutch

So I've been building my own floatlines from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C2YOMimPrUw

2 Questions:

1) Will the plug fit through the clutch?

2) If I choke up say 20' on the PVC the internal dynema would never engage (due to the 7'/25' stretch rate) so the I'm only counting on the PVC strength before component failure correct?

Thanks for any feedback.
