  • Cup Kit or Elasticate?

    I just ordered a power top 2 from matchman supplies for my sr1 im getting.
    What im wondering is if i would be better elasticating it or using it as a cup kit or i should just get a catty to solve that problem?
    Cheers

    I don't have a designated top kit for use as a cupping kit, I use a swing cup that allows it to fit on any top kit I have spare.
    I have an incidental on my left shoulder, he's always there, he's my friend.
    He says he gives me good advice. does he ?

      Connor, I converted my cupping kit back to a power kit. Middy do a great set of click on pole pots for pennies, the small one is too small for most uses for me, so I am going to convert it into a bigger cup for groundbait.

      Always have a spare top kit with you when you are out. The matchmen seem to need about 20!


      Jethro, what's the swing cup jobbie you mention?

        I like the drennan cups the transparent ones because i like to see how its presented. How do the middy cups work just clip into end of top kit?

          the middy cups do clip in they can be a bit of a nightmare as well sometimes,much prefer the screw in cups.

            To be honest you need both!! Extra top kits are essential so I would suggest using the genuine top kit as an extra top kit and if you can afford it I would buy something like the Drennan Universal Cupping kit which is about £23. For accurate feeding you will definately need a cupping kit or as somebody else said a method of fixing a larger cup to your top kits temporarily.
            Hope this helps!

              Hi connor, cupping kits are for potting a lot of bait in accurately, so you will need one in the course of your pole fishing! but i would elasticate the new power top & use a "kinder cup" fitted to your top kit as you are fishing, as you can put a fair bit of bait in with these! you can make these quite easily out of kinder eggs(the plastic bit) by making a hole & sliding it on your pole tip about 6ins from tip! also dont ignore your catty as its also a great way to feed with the pole, when fishing shallow especially. hope this helps mate .

                I think the pole comes with 2 power kits and a match kit,connor,the match kits go up to a size 14 laccy,so you can still use this for carp (not margin mauling,mind you!) So you can use the new kit as a cup kit and have 3 kits left. Or even use the match kit as a cupping kit? Not with a huge cup,though. And have 3 power kits to use.
                Decisions,decisions! ;-)

                  I'd have as many kits elasticated as you can, this way you have more choice when you get to the bank, turning up to fish for silvers with a 16 elastic, purely becasue its your only top won't do the job properly. To get around it though, just like making a kinder cup, do this but with a large lid off a shaving foam can or similar. so have a rig set up on your newly elasticated top kit and just slide the big pot on when you want to big pot. This might take a minute of faffing but generally you only big pot to kick start a session, top up, or when things arent going your way anyway so shouldnt disrupt your rhythm too much!

                    Im thinking an 8 elastic in the match kit. An 18-20 in one power kit a 14-16 in another and a cup kit?

                        Yeah that gives you a nice even spread of strength so you can get away with fishing for most species.

                          Luke swing pots were made by Seymo, I don't know if they still make em but there easy enough to make.
                          If you need to know I'll PM you.
                          I have an incidental on my left shoulder, he's always there, he's my friend.

                              No Luke a swing pot does what it says there the only types I can use. Other kinds empty as I'm shipping out, if I could put a picture up I would but I'm not capable.
