    I just use the drennan ones with the laccy glued on to prevent it slipping off half way through the match

        The Drennan ones.......... but I always take at least 2-3 as I seem to snap a few laggys per session

          Try replacing some of the laccy with duel core, works a treat

              Much as I love the Drennan catty's I've sometimes found a problem with the elastics spinning up which can be a pain.

              Been playing around with a couple of old frames and have done away with the pins, replacing them with swivels........

              This seems to impove things no end, with a change to Drennan Carp Bungee as the elastic.

              Still work in progress at the moment though, got some larger Mustad swivels to try next.

                Bloody brilliant Pete M ,
                Been through quite a lot of different cattys over the years.
                Addapted all kinds of cattys from what i have found to be the best bits that have lasted on them.
                Ended up with vespe frames,preston hollo elastic.
                Just the pouches to sort now , not found any that have not ripped on me yet!
                The new fox pouches are the perfect size for fishing pellet shallow on the wag,as the pouch is deep and stays rigid for easy loading with one hand.
                But they are not all that strong (shame).
                About time someone made a bullet proof catty because there is a gap in the market for one
                Roll on friday

                    I rub super glue over the mesh on Drennan cattys,this stiffens it up.
