Like the Texas Rig, the Carolina Rig offers a bang effect when the glass bead and bullet weight meet. Due to the given separation of weight and lure the softbait on this rig plays however more freely and sinks longer in the pauses. Therefore it is often the better choice when perch and zander are very inactive. On the other hand, the so-called C-Rig is less suitable for really nasty snagging spots. The Carolina Rig is especially good for worms, twisters and craws.
