    I happened to come across Znapz longline system today while i was messing around on the net. I was just wondering if anyone used these. If so what do you think about them?

    Don't know about them but I just bought Doctori Longlines at a Duckboat show & my Hunting partner bought 5 dozen lines drops & 5 lines. Doctari products are top quality, I'll be buying more soon!!

    Why buy one of these premade kits that are over priced?

    Get your clips here:

    Get your rope at your local hardware store. Use braided decoy line for the line for your clips to decoy.

    Use window weights or homemade anchors for mainline weights.

    Or for those with more money than time buy a premade overpriced kit. =)

    I just bought 2 of the 100' line kits. I haven't had a chance to use them yet but it comes with everything you need. The anchors are badass too.

    Nothing wrong with someone trying to make a few bucks.

    I am not a big fan of 120 tarred or those big bulky clips either.

    The Lanyards (aka: Droppers) look like they are tied with Tanglefree with a surgical rubber hose covering the outside. IMHO, the 12 inch drops are too short and the 36 inch drops are too long.

    With that said I will stick to the good ole' brass swivels (Cabelas), 5/16 Siff Braid for mains and Parachute cord for droppers.

    Those collapsable anchors can be purchased at Cabela's or Gander Mountain for the same price maybe even a $1 cheaper. Look in the fishing or boating departments not waterfowl if you are looking for them.

    Doctari's lines are the stuff. 120# tarred main line and I use 36" drop lines with 4" clips. Use plate weights like those on barbells from walmart for 2.50.

    Makes deploying decoys so much easier. If you use inferior materials expect inferior results.
