    All thin hollows will flatten out to a certain extent regardless of what brand it is, the only way to stop it completely is fill it with lube like Hydro.
    It is also gets damaged by the use of pullas particularly the side bush type when catching relatively small carp.
    Any idea what fluid they put in the hydro?

    strange so many rate the hollows elastics, me and a few lads have tried it and had nothing but trouble, biggest complaint is it flattening out on decent fish and then breaking, makes you wonder if theres a big variation in batches?
    tried three different size hollows and wouldn't buy any again to be honest.

    Yep, put some in some margin poles i use for the youngsters, absolutely brilliant and excellent value as well, (If you saw the amount of rigs, elastics etc we get through with over excited youngsters you would look for cheap) Despite the price , in my opinion its better than any of the other solid elastics we have used, So far haven't had to replace any yet

    I was using a combination of hydro, PI and Middy to cover my fishing and found something in Nicks range to replace each one bar my old favourite Middy 6-10......still looking for one to do that.

    Your probably right but I really can't be bothered with experimenting anymore. Like most I have had more elastic than a Chinese knicker factory. What I use now I know what I can and can't do with it. All elastics have their uses and limitations and the vespe range suits my fishing.

    Will stick with vespe, more expensive but I like it.
