This arrangement creates a lot more drag, which is what really slows the fish down. You won't need 20' of floating line, less is more. I use about 12', and keep as much as I can wrapped around the fender to keep the deck of my kayak organized.
    That's a really good idea about making it pull sideways. Probably stores easier than a round A0 buy too. I keep my line as short as I can. More rope is just more stuff to get wrapped around your gear above or below the kayak.

    The G3 is a perfect interference fit across the width of the tank well in the Revo16, tucked nicely under the sidekick cross bar, behind the seat. It really couldn't fit any better.
