I have just got a tripod for Barbel fishing but it is second hand and it doesn't come with bobbins, not that any do anyway, what I am looking for is a bobbin that is going to hold a fast flow, or an alternative that gives me that indication as well as using my buzzers on the Trent?

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance for any help received.

Bobbins are defunct for big river barbel fishing and simply not needed. If your rig is right ALL bites will be slam over affairs.
If you fish with a large enough lead and tighten up so that the rod has a slight bend in the tip you will also register all drop backs, which are few and far between anyway and usuall short lived. Most drop backs are merely the barbel hooking itself and lifting the lead off the bottom, the result that within a split second they roar off anyway.
