I have a 6m D.A.M Skipper XL whip, which has been elasticated before I aquired it.

Written on it is "2.5 Act"
I believe it means it is 2.5lbs test curve, but what does the "A" stand for? Accurate? Approximate?

MOST IMPORTANTLY, If it's 2.5lb test curve, what's the biggest elastic that it will handle?

AND with the max size elastic, would this pole be suitable for use as a margin pole for commercial carp venues??
