  1. Take a look at the Fox Easy Splice Needle. A bit different from the normal splicing needles as it doesn't have a hook but is twisted metal instead. Might just be what you are looking for.
  2. Just to throw a spanner in the works, I would hold off as Penn are just about to release Carbon Affinities and see how much these cost.
  3. Nick you managed to get your hands on the Korda Prototype?
  4. What Hooks do you normally use? Are these available in Barbless? If so I would stick with what you are confident in and I just like to add a bit of shrink tube to help keep the hook in place.
  5. I tried them for a water I was fishing with a barbless only rule. They were pretty good, found they came up a bit small for the size stated so that's something to bare in mind when buying them.
  6. Take a look at the Wychwood dispatch spod reel. Similar price and comes loaded with 30lb braid.
  7. Thanks Nige would be good to know.
  8. Nige do you happen to know if the Stiff version can be crimped?
  9. They look good in all the tank tests they do and they do disappear on any lakebed colour but do you really need to use a leader? If you want to use something behind the lead there is so much quality tubing out there now I would opt to use that.
  10. They have just brought out the full range in barbless fella, good to see you back.
  11. My dad is around the 20 stone mark and has mobility issues and he has always gone for the Nash Daddly Long legs chair. They are reallly comfortable and he has never had an issue with them. They are really easy to get in and out of too.
  12. Thanks, I ordered some big ring swivels to top up my supply as they seem to be the only ones who do them now.
  13. They range from £21 per stick to £25 depending on length. I like the carbon touch on them but they do look far too chunky and not too my taste.
  14. I would get them soon as the Tacklebox website says they have been discontinued so only have selected sizes left.
  15. Yes you can use it running on the mainline. Providing your using a semi stiff or stiff boom section and balanced correct you shouldn't encounter any tangles.
