Ringle: a Fluoro orange plastic Ring that clips onto your line with a bit of silicone tube. Basically a Better designed, commercial version of a washing up bottle top. Just about the best ever lightweight bobbin. If I had the brains to add a photo I would do so.

invented by a guy called Alan Pearce probably around 1985-90. I’m lucky enough to say that he was a good pal of mine. RIP Alan.

Thanks for the numerous suggestions
I’m going to try the light bobbin idea first as I have one or two already. Have to remember to loosen my reel clutch in case a carp takes off !! Be interesting to see how sensitive it can be compared to a 1.5oz tip

Rod tip pointing down slightly off centre with the rod butt on your lap and cast to the edges of your swim.

Thank you Squimp. Rudd must be busy I guess. Cheers mate. I’d never heard of a Ringle. ?

Mmmmmm poor pensioner my ar#e. Lead sales up this year ? ??

Why? Do you want to buy a set? :giggle:. I have some that plug into the alarms that light up when you get a run, full set of 4 (blue, red, green and yellow). Turns the bank side into a disco if you get a run on 3 rods. :D Now...where's that white suit? :unsure: :LOL:

I have a similar problem on many of the pegs I fish. In those circumstances I use a lightweight bobbin (I think they are made by Fox, but can’t be sure, but they are less than an inch long) and slacken off my drag, just in case. Use 6lb main most of the time and while that set up isn’t as sensitive as a quiver, it does the job. I really like bobbins...there is something exciting about seeing it bobbin before the drag starts clicking away ?

Wasn’t there such a thing as a dough bobbin? Or am I making that up? Made of compressed bread.

When using one of my old rod that's not very sensitive.
I just use a large float about 1'to 2' overdepth just tighten line to take out the slack so float is just laying flat, fish can have a little run before it feels anything.
Had half a dozen carp last weekend using it.
