Safe or not....?

Picked up one of these from sports direct, marketed by greys prowla. Was thinking about giving it a go as an alternative to float paternostering from a boat but concerned at how safe they are. In theory it should cast a lot further and offer a different presentation. Looks like it will sink level and keep things tangle free. Would obviously use an up trace and float in conjuction. Anybody tried the contraption or their own similar invention?

That looks very familiar to the greys 360 paternoster boom. I've a one the bank rod and one on the boat rod, had a few of 20s last year on them, they work a treat!

Greys aren't the type of company to attach their name to s***e.
But on the other hand, I didn't think you'd find Greys in sports direct..

Seems a novel idea , just concerned with popping a bait up 'near' a vertical mainline , always used a float pat in the past but they can be a bugger to cast ...

Why not just paternoster it off bottom?

There's something in the back of my mind that Sports Direct took over part of if not all of Fishing Republic.

We used something very similar years ago we picked up from Charlie Bettell using a full length of John Roberts rig tube and small drilled bullets glued to the end of the tube to hold it all down, he called it the confidence rig.

Never caught any less or any more for that matter using it.
