  • Shotting aids

    Hi Gents,
    Anybody got experience of these gadgets?.Failing eyesight and thick fingers are causing me a problem with anything smaller than a No.8.

    Having only one usable hand I have trouble putting any shot on line what I do is use double sided tape to hold the shot & stick the line in the cut then nip it closed with a pair of style pliers. The only trouble is having to make all my rigs at home If your eyes are dodgy use a magnifying glass I have one made up on a clamp.

      Guys if its for pole rigs try stotz,

      They lay a little easier on your finger as they are flat and make application alot better

      I have dodgy eyes and sausage fingers not a good combination but I can put a size 12 stot on with relative ease
