Five color has been good for me. I'd do two five and a three.  On the fourth rod I might keep it short while water is cooler than switch it to a seven color when fish move deeper.

I'd go with 2 5s, 1 3 and 1 7.

I have a 5, 7, 10 and 4 that was a 5 but got snagged and lost some when I was too shallow. I use the 5s most of the time. I added the 7 last year and have not used it much. Also depends on how you plan to use them. With a 3 you can add snap weights to get deeper or if you have a 7 or 10 that doesn't mean you need to let out all 7 or 10 colors.

Are you strictly using them for walleyes? If so 18 lb would be fine. I use mine for salmon/trout as well and have 27 lb. Powerpro is good for backing and you can get more on than when using mono for backing.

Like fishmaster said 35 ft, assume 5ft per color depending on speed.
Can't think of the knot name but put the mono or floro inside the sheath of the leadcore after taking some lead out and use over hand knot on mono side and lead core side.

How deep are you fishing when you use 7 color?

Also depends which kind of lead core you use.
Regular is 5' / color. Dacron sheath.
Suffix 8/32 Advanced Core will go down 7' / color. Smaller diameter and sheath is made of 8/32 Braided line not Dacron.

Fantastic so simple yet effective.
How do you attach it to the dipsey diver?
Thanks for any help

Leadcore is used to get your bait to a desired depth, without a diving device added.
Dipseys are to be used on Mono, Braid or Steel Line. The Dipsey is used to achieve the desired depth by adding line out the more you let out.
Using the two together would be useless and trouble, as the diver is doing all the work, and lead would be doing nothing.

I believe the willis knot only works with mono and fluorocarbon (leader end). I have never tried it with braid  backer because I prefer mono backer but I think braid inside lead core will slip.  Any body out there disagree ?

    • Leadcore with Deep Divers

      By now, most of us have knowledge of some decent estimators for the running depths of various lure setups (like the Precision Trolling data- and/or other dive charts etc). Use of this information can be critical to presenting your bait of choice in the strike zone. Right now I am only invested into a few 5 color lead core rigs and a ten color (as I've heard that the 5 color seems to get used the most with success). I've got dipsey's, snap weights, bottom bouncers, jet divers & riggers bla bl
