Hi All,

I have just bought a Preston Pulla bung and some elastic ready to fit into my top kit. The problem is I have my old bung stuck up inside.

I've tried boiling hot water to heat the section up and then tried tapping the bottom to loosen it, it still won't budge. I've not got anything thin enough or strong enough to poke down and push it out, so I'm stuck now (literally)

What can I do? Any ideas will be appreciated lads

Cheers

Tim

Get a welding rod. Does it not have an extractor rod?

Be carefull trying to push it out from above [the smaller dia] you can end up poking a hole in the wall of your pole.

Attach a screw to the end of a long rod, push it into the base of the bung and secure it with a few turns, then pull it out

Thanks for the suggestions so far.

Nathan - no it doesn't have an extractor rod, it's been in there a long time I originally tied some 12lb line to it to pull it out but that broke down, unsurprisingly.

Where would a get a welding rod from?

Get a wire coat hanger and some wire snips/pliers, cut the wire and bend over the end to make a small hook (try and get it like a 16s-14s hook size), heat the end up over a stove/fire until blue and will melt plastic, try it on some old plastic, then just push it up into the bung and turn it slightly - leave it for a couple of minutes to cool and the melted plastic to reharden then just pull the bung out.

Fill it up with water the from the top extra weight will help force it out
Just tap it on the carpet just be careful not to do it too hard n split the section

Pop it down to your local tackle shop.
Im sure they will have an extractor lying about to pull the Bugger out.
Specially if your not sure which type you need.

Are Yoy sure that was a butt plug and not a bung,


Back to topic,

I've removed loads of stuck bungs for people who've brought them into the sho, simply by tapping on the floor firmly but not hard enough to split the pole,

Do You know which make of bung it is?.

No mate, it was a taken from a box of pole bits n bobs that my father in law gave from his fishing days, I used the bits to elasticate my old garbolino spyder pole, I've only been back fishing a year from a 16 year break, the pole has done surprisingly well for its age, the elastic was middy no 6 and about 7 year old! I didn't expect it to stand up to much but It has, it's even landed a 14lb carp!

The bung itself was a winder bung, illuminous yellow... I can't quite remember the make now... Actually I think it may have been a Vespe

Vespe bungs have a twit fitting, Drennan bung extractors fit. I think it was Maver that had a screw fitting.
