    With my new Hit and hold margin master can anybody reccomend what size elastic please? I figure i will need 22 but would be nice to get some of your thoughts

    HI Carl.

    Never used the stuff myself but would that hydrolastic in the heavier gauge be any good, more of a question than a suggestion. Seen a couple of articles on it and a lot of people seem to be using it on carp puddles now.
    These hit and hold poles should take a 22 no probs though, just balance your line to it.

    Wasn't thinking there Carl, the heaviest elastic I've heard of is 20, but my pole (ahem) hasn't seen the light for a couple of seasons now, so I've not kept up on the subject. Could be up to 30 for all I know.

    I've heard of poles being rated att 22 but only ever seen elastic up to 20 which is enough of a bungee rope to stop most fish. I'd set it quite loose though so that any smaller fish can be landed too

    hi carl
    i use a lerc margin pole and the elastic i use is 16 through 3 sections, but i have lost some good fish, not because of the elastic but the hooks have pulled out.

    the line i use with it is super T1 .16 tied direct and i have landed several doubles with it, it all depends what size fish your after

    any questions email me
