    With only two top kits you are a bit limited for choice, but I use the Maver dual core elastic size 12-20 in one of my tops which if not set too tight will handle skimmers as well as bigger fish although a 24lb fish might take a bit of handling, alternatves may be black hydro or any of the other hollow elastics.
    I also use pure latex in a size 12 for fish to around the 6/7 lb mark again it seems fairly forgiving when hooking smaller fish, the alternative would be white hydro. I have had no problems with the 12-20 dual core which is now getting on for 3 years old although I have remade the stonflo connection a couple of times by letting a couple of inches of the winder bung.

      Brian is pretty much spot on with his recommendation - a good starting point would be to have one top with white hydro and one with the Maver Dual core 12-20....

      As for lines and hooks... Get some of the Gamakatsu G-Line in 0.10, 0.12 and 0.14 and some Tubertini 808 hooks in sizes 16, 18 and 20.

          Take a look at the spools of line and they will have a line diameter stated as well as breaking strain from brand to brand they will differ slightly, .10 line will break at around 2.5lb .12 at say 3.6lb and so on, most rigs for carp are made up on either .14 or .16 line if its big lumps and snaggy then you might need to go to .20, remember for rigs you are looking for the hi-tech line as opossed to reel lines which will have a lower breaking strain.
