Done my maps top kits with 2.5mt but I have side pullers but it depends on it you have bottom pullers best to measure from top to bottom what length

with side pulla yes but if you are using a pulla bung you might need a bit longer as the top kits are 2.7m

NG ultra core, any idea what is suitable for catching what species. Cheers
I used the Pink in the 2 match top kits! had mainly F1s to 3lbs and the odd mirror around 8lbs first time out this week, very impressed with it!
I ordered 5M from N.G and had plenty!

It’s good but it’s soft and very stretchy I have found you need at least a gauge up from what it is sold as. Even the 14-16 is a bit light for 7-10lb carp.

If you have a tape measure you can measure the top kit and as long as it is less than 2.5m you should be OK.

MAP well 501 2g type 2 top kits are 2.7 m long OK side puller is up a bit but I think 2.5 M would be really two short and a fiddle to fit
I use 3m and keep the spare up the side of the kit don't bother to cut !

For the sake of a few pence extra, why leave yourself short? Buy 3m lengths.
