The only blades to buy are from Victrinox or Swibo and they don't throw too well.

for bream i like to cast it close to the structure pillons are the easiest with blades with the line on the back hole and just slowly lift and wind and make sure its slowly and my Favorite trick is to keep the line tight on the drop as this is were i get most of my takes

I like to flick it close to structure, then let it sink, then work it back slow lifts of your rod tip then let it sink again. but always have pressure on the line even on the drop to fell when a bream picks it up.

might be a silly question but

I tried out a ghost blade for the first time last night & the bottom treble kept catching on the swivel snap that i used to join the lure to the line. I used the middle hole. Should the line be joined direct to the quick snap clip to avoid this?
