  • pole elastic

    hi keep reading about what elastic to use. not down the edge, basically for up in the water for fis and carp around 4to 6lb. I have been using grey hydro. now I think maybe its not quite the right one, I do use it with a puller kit. what do you think the best lackey to use and what hook strength.

    Vespe green, maybe red, speak with carpysteve, he has it off to a fine art up in the water, there are several entries over the last few months about which elastic to use, just search vespe. Hope this helps all the best Elvis.

        Difficult one to balance as I would probably use a different elastic for f1's than for 4-6lb carp.......I reckon grey hydro sounds about right.

        Having started to use the NG elastic I'd be reaching for the black amber core as I find it initially softer than grey but then powers up a little like black.....that said if it was more f1's I'd be going lighter to say the green white core which is more like white hydro but will deal with the odd better carp

          Hi fishingfreek

          Firstly, it would depend on what size of F1's you are targeting. I use yellow Vespe for small F1's and green Vespe for big F1's both are with pullers. As for carp in the 4 to 6 Lb range I use green, but would consider red Vespe if I was bagging so that I could can them in quicker. However if I was getting hook pulls I would revert to green Vespe.

          Regards Steve
