Is that a couple of strips of staples, and if so, what are they for ?

Making little hooks to fasten to elastic to keep the rigs on the winders (?)

A bit like a mini bungee cord

As with the last lockdown, this one won’t be cheap!
600m 4lb Maxima received yesterday and 600m 6lb Maxima also on the way to renew line on 6 reels.
NG ultracore elastics on the way to do 6 top kits 😬
Considering buying a MAP X4. I say considering, more like it’s just a matter of when I order one... 🤣

You attach the bottom loop to the staple onto the winder, keeps everything dead straight
So no elastic ? Must be accurate in your tying. Think I still have loads of Milo pole anchors down the shed still.

^^ So our Chefster can staple details on a piece of paper to his pole winder because his black marker pen has run out? :oops:;):love:

The staple connects the loop where the H/L goes onto, don’t need elastic, it’s a slide winder the anchor is the plastic slide

Ah, now I see. Looked all one piece being the same colour, all my Fox ones have black slides on the edge.

The staple keeps everything in line and stops the loop kicking out, so when you attach the Hooklength , it hangs nice and straight

Got a nice delivery of floats from PR Floats(Phil Reynolds) today, top quality as you’d expect from a premier float maker!..At least I’ve got something to do now tying these up, ready for when I can get out again 😂 C6F366D7-4178-4F70-A226-1A1869F38949.jpeg A0647D1C-022D-45A0-B376-0BAD09B32EE4.jpeg
The carbon stems seem long, on the slims, do you trim them down at all?

The way that stotz is sitting on the rig the other way around to the others would give me sleepless nights. 😀
^^....I was going to say something to our Gazz about that, but I didn't want to spoil his weekend! :oops::love::ROFLMAO:
