  • Pole/elastic help please

    I ve just recieved me new pole and unfortunately none of my old kits including the universal top kits fit it. .
    i ll prob use it now as a margin pole with 2 top kits currently 16 + 12 solid elastic.
    My new pole has three top kits and will be mostly used for commercial Carp but with the occasional river and canal trips (only 4 or 5 times a year).

    What elastic would you suggest having in my new three top kits?

    Cheers in advance for the help

    My personal choice would depend on the size of carp, but for fish to 2/3lbs I'd go for 10-12 Latex.
    Bigger fish would need 14-16 Latex, with a 18ish solid/Latex for margins/snaggy pegs.
    I've tried Hydro/Dual core and find it too stretchy, and too expensive.
    People who use Hydro rave about it, but most of the top guys I know have moved away from it.

        Cheers for the posts lads.

        the new top kits do have a elastic rating but wanted to have a good spread of elastic to cover all different situations. I suppose i could just change elastics when on the rare occassions when im on a canal/river or just after silvers.
