Thanks. They have always peaked my curiosity.
I have 2 on order. Never used them, but there's tons of info on youtube how to use them. It appears you can use mono, braid, lead core , or wire. Many guys in the Great Lakes use up to 10 colors of lead core behind them. I like the idea of not fishing under the boat and many feet to the side. I'll be using lead core. You can use any bait you wish with them.
