Speed Stop Slip Bobber Rig Review

If you use slip bobber rigs for fishing, you may have become frustrated when the slip bobber stop moves on the line. I test and review the Speed Stop bobber stop in this unsponsored video and it may be the slip bobber setup you should use for bobber fishing.

It goes without saying that fishing is dangerous as a result of the fast water, slick rocks and other hazards that occur in random, unexpected places. You need to exercise caution, particularly in the spring when the water is high or during rapid changes in tide before you fish anywhere. You should always wear a life vest when fishing. Also, a wading staff will help you keep your balance as you walk on the shoreline or wade.

The bottom line is that you must make a judgment regarding acceptable behavior and risk and not rely on the opinions expressed here. The regulations governing legal access to fishing locations may change at any time, and it is your responsibility to understand the law. Nothing expressed should be construed as encouraging you to trespass on private property or violate a regulation.

Never tried them I’ll check them out. I have been using the ones like you use and they slip up the line really bad as well.

Greg Donahue says:

I just went on a search for braid-suitable bobber stops as well and settled on the speed weaver (weave the line in and out of holes on a small piece of plastic). I heard the speed stop causes line twist, but I have not tried that style myself to verify.

Larry Simmons says:

Have u ever tried the spring bobber stops


love them use them all the time in biloxi bay

Charles Moore says:

I use the cloth bobber stop because they are the only that hold for me. It is being used with 20-30lb braid and 3oz weight needed for the distance and current where the fish are. It’s hard to believe that you are using that much weight or casting 70+ yards. The cloth stops need to be moistened, pulled extremely tight to hold and trimmed to work. One other note, make sure the bead has a small enough hole. Some of the cloth stops I have purchased have beads with a large hole. This will let the bobber stop to pass thru. When using braid and the cloth stop test the bead for pull thru. The combination of thin braid and thin cloth might not be large enough to work with the supplied bead.
For reference I have tried plastic ladder style stops, pull on rubber stops, spring stops and cloth (dacron thread) on 20-30lb braid. The only ones to work with 3 oz lead were the cloth stops with small hole beads. When using cloth stops with mono they can be tightened down so hard that they can not be adjusted. When this happens just ease up on how tight they are applied.

Greg Jackson says:

Not a bobber user myself, but my wife uses them, and I rig hers with the rubber type stopper that also has a plastic bead between the rubber stopper and the top of the slip/sliding bobber. The bead keeps the stopper from getting stuck in the slip bobber. Depth is adjusted manually by sliding the stopper to where you want it. Link below to type used. We get them at Walmart.

Derrick Morgan says:

Hey @kayak hacks fishing , when and what type of condition is it best to catch some nice reds from the shore? Please help… I’ve been in Florida for 9 months and I’ve only caught two my first week here. I appreciate it sir, happy fishing.

Rob Fowler says:

I use the rubber stopper for all types of applications they work great. They come in different sizes
Depending on the line you use. I use them for controlling my slip weights also.

Barney Ewing says:

Actually the cloth stops are nothing more than fly line backing. How easy is it to adjust the depth on the Speed Stop?
