I agree with you, I always used a lead as light as possible until I spent sometime fishing with a mate who used heavy leads, like you say 3oz plus. The take was unmissable and the hook placement consistently in the scissors,possibly hooked using the bolt effect.
definetly mate, i find exact same or they were often hooked in the roof of the mouth, good way to do it if they havent seen many pat rigs

Any rig that keeps the hooks away from the rakers has got to be a good thing for pike welfare :thumbs:
