1.5 wraps set up

Hi guys,

Any ideas out there on how to set up a pipe gun with 1.5 wraps?

I don't like two wraps as I find it gives the fish too much space to hole up, even when I am very fast on the retrieve. This is a problem as I am in Broome, West Australia, we have coral and serious shark numbers, so holed up fish wreak havoc on shooting lines and I like to get fish out of the water and into my float boat as fast as possible to avoid shark problems.

However I have had a couple of occasions where I've been targeting flighty fish and have taken shots that are well aimed but the shaft hits the end of the shooting line juuust before reaching the fish.

Shooting a 95 meandros with a 7mm shaft and twin 14s at 360% so still heaps of power past one wrap.

I don't particularly want to drill into the barrel between the barrel plugs and compromise bouyancy so any thoughts would be appreciated.
