I know when they are clipped down it meay appear as if the hooklength is taking the load but it is in fact the 'fulrum', the point where the top swivel or pulley bead is in direct contact with the rig body that takes the majority of the 'Shock load' during casting, this being the reason that the pulley bead was designed in the first place.
If I could only fish with one rig it would be the pulley as it can be adapted to meet all conditions and requirements, and will take most species. I have even been experimenting with a pulley rig where the hooklength swivel has been replaced with a three-way swivel and a second dropper has been added because I have noticed that when schoolie bass come in they seem to take the top hook of a two hook flapper.

The top hookis on a short mono hooklength of about 6-9 inches and I always bait it with sandeel, or razor which needs to be held on with elastic.

I notice during the video that he mentions how the bead spreads the load on the line over a greater area to prevent kinking-same reason I stopped using diamond eye swivels on my carp rigs,they strangle the knot more under tension than a round eye version,also the line diameters were smaller so probably more prone to damage than typical sea rig material-still anything to help prevent weak spots must be worth considering from a safety point if nothing else? :D :D
