  • Preston Elasticated Method Feeders

    Are these as good as the inline method feeders from preston?
    And how would i go about setting one up?
    Cheers

      A lot of waters ban the elasticated feeders,as they are classed as a bolt rig,connor. I always use the inline-much safer for the fish if you snap off,and just as effective.

        I found with the elasticated feeder, i didnt loose as many fish by either getting broke or hook pulls. The elastic absorbs the lunges you see, but if your mainline was to get broke on a fish you leave a fish trailing a feeder which id expect can kill them, As long as you use a nice soft action rod with the inline one your just as well off imo

          oh and to set one up you can just tie your mainline to the plactic hole at the top, and your hooklength to the ring at the bottom of the elastic, or us snap-links through these holes etc

            I like the elasticated preston feeders but as Aidan has already said the fitted elastic really is crap. I replace it with 15 hollow or black hydro.

              Ok cheers.
              I get snapped off a bit on the 6lb line so i just wanted to use the elasticated one as a shock absorber in a way.
              there is no way you can target a certain species in my local as there is everything under the sun. so i will probably buy an elasticated and an inline one in the small size. Cheers for the advice,

                the kobra method feeders are the best elasticated you can buy they are a bit dearer but well worth the money and i would up your main line to 8lb if i were you i got my feeders off the kobra web site free postage if you buy a tenners worth and they also sent me a free mould but i did get a lot of them hope this helps

                  Set your clutch a bit lighter then.

                      Elasticated feeders i would advice 10 even 12lbs main line to try to eliminate leaving fish towing rig around
                      personaly i stopped using them years ago & prefer in line
                      The elastic always seemed to make the playing of the fish Very Vague to me it was realy hard to judge what was on the hook until it popped up in front of me
