  • Pole Elastic

    Ive just treated myself to a new pole, which has come with four top three's and two carp top two's
    As 95% of my fishing is done on canals, Ive never needed more than maybe a size 8's elastic, this has always been Prestons slip.

    My question is :-
    Is it worth spending the extra on expensive / hollo / hydro elastic? or stick to what I know?

    The carp tops will be loaded up with heavy stuff..............

    Regards

    Steve

    if the elastic is good and you know it performs well i would stick to it, thats my opinon
    :D I'll fish anytime and anywhere (as you can see).:D

      well why waste money on heavy elastics if you fish the tidlly pools


      just put light elastic throught the power tops like number 8 to 10 works perfect for bream skimmers etc

            to be honest through winter where i fish i use 2.6lb line and 20s b510 i use green map as very soft ideal for fls and think even white hydro is bit sever and bumped a few off on sunday with the white cus didnt ave enough tops with green map..i used the map for 2 winterls now and i find it spot on a sit can be tightend up so retrieves back in the pole every time yet still remains very soft

                  a lot softer i feel through winter the hydro tightens up a bit so isnt as soft so green map is spot on, have a go with some matt
