Right, so after realising the daiwa cupping kit is rubbish I've decided to get an extendable kit. Question is do I go for the garbolino or the preston one? Anyone who's used either or both, which do they prefer, which I as stiffer etc
It's very usable for big heavy ground bait balls IMO, and having used The Garbolino Extendable cupping kit for over 15 years (I have two, for two different poles) one with a Preston cupping kit and other one with the supplied Garbolino cupping kit (this has a smaller diameter threaded section for the cups that come with it) and both have been fine.
Extendable cupping kits can liable to twisting by the nature of the locking mechanism (tight rubber fitting grommet etc) with heavy ground bait balls, but once aware of this, and with care it can be overcome.
The Garbolino ext' cupping kit 'stiffness' swung it for me.....Can't be doing with a droopy cupping kit!
I use the the Preston Spot on extendable cupping kit on my Daiwa G50.
I know a few who have the same pole and use this cupping kit, they converted the Tournament cupping kit
you get with the G5o into an extra top kit.
