"Swedish Torpedo" Explanation?

A few years back, there was a lot of noise made about a revolutionary system in the SEL called the torpedo. Apparently, it was so successful that rules changes were made (i.e. removing the red line)to curtail its influence.

I was wondering if anyone could descrive or point out a site that describes exactly how the torpedo worked.

The torpedo system is dead. It was effective for about 18 months and has never really been deployed in the national team.

Actually it was the "swedish trap" that was so effective that the rule change was made. Trap game did not work so well after that and swedes then came up with the torpedo system.
