  • The right pole elastic

    Apologies if this has been ask loads b4
    The time has come to buy some top kits for my pole... and I'm going with the "Milo 'Stripper' Top 2 Kits" they have a deal for 3 at fosters ..
    I need some advice as to the best one for my needs
    The typical thing that you catch from my local club pond is skimmers around a pound/half no more, and fairly large carp rarely under 6lb most around 8/10lb up to 14lb ,so I'm looking for a lacky that will catch me those skimmers without bumping them off, but robust enough to pull in a lower double scrapper
    Thx in advance for any advice

        Yes, skimmers have very soft mouths. I would also use white hydro or yellow mosella j range.

                Grey will probably be best set soft at least you got a bit of power with a 10lb carp then coz White seems to go to the moon and back lol

                  ok white the softest going to grey then black the toughest ?
                  A fellla was fishing white hydro/16 hook on the match and he had a 13.8 carp on it .. said it took him 20 mins to land it ,but he was going for skimmers ,will white with a puller be better suited ? ,or will grey be the right compromise ?

                    White hydro is your winner I've had 14lb carp in on it with no problems it may take a bit longer than using black hydro but at least your not gonna sacrifice loosing skimmers. Deffinatly need a puller with white tho! Lol. Or try both! Start off on white catching skimmers until the carp move in then switch over to the black.
