  1. The power top 2 kits are more for commercials and bigger fish, so therefore more stiff. The match top 3 kits are also used a lot on commercials but for silvers and therefore more softer than a power kit. Less elastic is used in the power kit as it runs through the top to sections. Top twos are kits which you use if you are fishing for carp in the margins which you will use 16 to 18 elastics, or carp, tench, F1s etc in open water with size 10 to 14 elastic. Match top 3 kits are designed for lighter elastics like 4 to 10 elastics and therefore are used for smaller fish like roach, Rudd, skimmers etc. The elastic runs through the top 3 sections and has a thinner top so you prob wouldn't be able to get a heavy elastic through it anyway. Jack.
  2. Good evening, If you are fishing on a canal I would recommend Daiwa blue hydro. Hydro elastic has a rating of 5-8, this means when playing small roach etc on the canal the elastic will act as a number 5 elastic which will be fine for that type of fishing. If however you were to hook a bream or a decent perch the elastic will act as a number 8. The hydro is hollow in the middle and has a special type of liquid in it that enables it to constrict and become a harder elastic. However the Daiwa hydros are about £15. However you could buy a number 6 solid elastic and fit it to a pullabung and then if you were to hook a bigger fish you could carefully ship to your top kit and use the pulla and tighten the pressure on the elastic to put pressure on the fish. A Preston solid number 10 and a pullabung is about £10 altogether so it's up to you really. Hope this helped, Jack Edit: btw I would recommend a match top 3 top kit rather than a top 2 power kit. You won't bump as many fish with a softer top 3 kit.
  3. For bream I only use the Old Ghost Bream ground bait with about half a tin of sweet corn in it and corn on the hook. Although it is mainly a spring/summer mix. Oh, and molasses additive as well. Jack.
  4. Rudd, How would it affect my no.4 section? My top 2 sections have the elastic in them, wouldn't it affect my no.3 section? Thanks, Jack
  5. Good Afternoon all, I have fitted a bulla bung to the end of my elastic in my pole and it fits fine until I put the next section and then it pushes down into my pole a little bit. Can I cut the dark part at the end of my pole about about 1inch? It seems more reinforced than the rest of the section. I will still have about 2inches of the dark part left. Thanks, Jack Edit: Sorry the picture isn't great quality, at the bottom of the pole you can just about see the change in colour of the section.

    Good idea but I cant see it taking off in this country. Like the others I too would be questioning the lines strength on my reel after fishing in rain. (which seems to be increasing year on year )
  8. Can anyone shed any light on this old rod I have acquired. Thanks in advance, Jack
  9. You should be able to buy it via the xbox dashboard or on the setting when you have signed into your account.
