down rigger release clips for braided line

Any suggestions?  I have 50# braided line and do not want to switch to steel or mono.

    I don't put the braid directly into the clips (black Big John's), like to half-hitch a #16 rubber band around the braid and put the rubber band into the clip.

    On the internet, EVERYONE is entitled to their opinion!

    What IUP said. I'm partial to Blacks. Use them everyday(May thru October)without fail.

    Like Erie Mako, I run the BigJon rubber band clips on 30lb PP.  I wrap entire band 4-5 time around braid then put both ends (loops) of the band on the hook.  Seems to stop slippage better than a single cinch.
