Hello

 

I used to have a quiver tip rod that had Full Coloured Quiver tips. I.e the tip was entirely white.

 

Do you know what style of tips these are because i would like to source these out. I found them to be good for my eye sight.

I maybe wrong but are these barble rods??

 

Nothing wrong with painting any tip or tipex works well

The only rods I have had with full coloured tips have been barbel ones. I have no doubt that there are others around though, I just haven't seen them. When I want to extend the coloured part of my quiver tips I use float paint.

I'm the same as viney. I make a sight tip on my quivers with PTFE tape too, after some advice from our Budgie.

I wrapped one of my quivertips with PTFE (plumbers) tape then used a sharpy to put black rings round it, been going strong for a few years and still very visable

 

PTFE = Plumbers tape for everything ;)

As famous fisherman John Gierach once said "I used to like fishing because I thought it had some larger significance. Now I like fishing because it's the one thing I can think of that probably doesn't."

All of the tips for the Drennan specialist avon/quiver (possibly fit other rods in the range) are one colour for the last foot or so, a sort of pale fluorescent yellow. My old Silstar matchpicker had tips of all one colour too.

The white/green luminous Drennan tips are really good, the best I've ever had for visibility. Fox make some great rods but they always seem to have black tips with a red end, which are nowhere near as good. The Drennan tips don't fit the Fox rods I have, sadly.

And those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music

But what about the Australian birds advice? (Couldn't resist :hypocrite: )
