Default Am I using this setup correctly?

Recoil Rig™

Short Video of the technique I'm using.

If anyone has a better system, please share.

That's a lot of hardware to fish a drop shot and I'm not a fan of the "line-lock" line pinching weights or swivels as shown. They either work loose or the line fails at the pinch after a few casts, so I knot all my dropshot weights. I really don't see a need for the elastic cord either, dropshotting for me is a subtle presentation with slight twitches of the line while maintaining contact with the bottom and the elastic may interfer with feeling the bottom.
