Thinking of using hydro through my puller kits and as its winter fishing Im thinking that No11 preston hollow is ideal for 90% of situations but what would be the equal to No11 hollow in the Diawa hydro range?
Having just ordered a new pole it has 8 top kits, could someone give me advice on what strength elastics to put in to cover all situations, it comes with 4 interlastic tops and 4 match 3's, i will take no1 out.
no matter what pole i have had i always suffer from the elastic sticking unless set to pingy,what i do is cut the maver clean caps down and slide 2 into the the number two after the elastic is in put one on the number 3 and te elastic can be set as soft as you like and it will not stick when wet,to get them out just remove internal bush and push them out with the number 1.
I still remember my first attempt at cutting back a top kit for elasticating. I used a junior hacksaw, ultimate sin, I applied pressure on the forward stroke, result carbon bits all over the place where it shattered. I now use a set of engineers needle files, just draw the triangular one backwards gently untillit cuts through, then clean up the cut end with some very fine wet and dry paper.
