Taken from their web site:

Because hollow elastic behaves and stretches differently to
solid elastic, Hollo Elastic is graded in odd number sizes.
These closely match the equivalent strength of solid
elastic but are only a representative guide.

This is only of use if you are familiar with the strenghts of solid though.

Preston-as in made by Preston Innovations


Hollo- as in its Hollow

Preston hollo comes in 4 size,s. 9h light blue 13h green 15h dark blue 19h purple, and as yalding bloke says they have give them odd nummbers, so it gos 0to9 9to13 13to15 15to19 19h being the heavyist most would say = to 20s,dont for get hollo was manly for carp so they have to started at a 9h which is up to 9 so what there saying is it will do the same as any elastic up to a 9s will do,so you can get small skimers roach and small carp,so 9h to 19h being for big fish you have to work out what size you need (on how big a fish you might get)and what elastic you feel comfy with.if you were going to start useing it i would start on a 13h or a15h and go from there.Hollo just means theres a hole all the way through the centre they say it helps it stretch better. hope it helps a bit.

9h is more like 6-8, 13h is 10-12, 15h is 14-16, 19h is 18-20ish.
These all depend how you set them of course and how much elastic you actually put in your topkits.

poleangler surely that should read: 9= 8-10 13=12-14 15=14-16 and 19=18-20 the h stands for Hollow. They have now got a 11h (10-12) and a 17h (16-18)
Remember Daiwa Hyro has a numbered grading to it, e.g blue 5-8 white 6-10 etc,but everyone just referes to it by its colour, as it was the original hollow elastic (all be it filled with lube)

Chavey,
These are just what I think they are equal to.
I have used them all and elastics differ that much between manufacturers
that I personally think people would need to use them to say how strong they think each size equates to.
You could use differing lengths and get different results and after constant use a lot of them go softer.
