They are a neoprene sleeve that covers and protects the tips and butts of the rod with a strip of elastic holding them together...

Nash, Korum, Thinking Anglers all make them...

That makes more sense I've just never heard them being called tip tops before 😁

New bedchair arrived today. Cannot believe how light it is compared to the TFG I've been using. Doddle to put up and pack away and very supportive too. Can't wait to use it in anger 

What bed  is it may I ask smufter?

Be aware that the leather pouch is like a PVC material...  not really leather... (well mine certainly isnt)... and the Neoprene one is a REALLY  tight fit

The Neoprene does loosen up after a while though 

still a git with cold hands haha

Took delivery today of the Cyprinus Typhoon bivvy. Not had the chance to put it up yet but from the quick look I have had it looks a good bit of kit, will put it to test over the weeknd. If it is as well made as their Magnatex brolly which lasted me so much longer than it should have considering the price I will be well happy.

Let us know what you think please mate. I hear they're bringing out a stripped-out brolly version which I may be interested in.

Oops 

More hooks 😁

Trig hammers 

ESP stiff riggers 

Ibhooks sharpened choddas

Ibhooks almond hook point protector stuff 

Tungsten line aligners 

12lb Gardner Hydrotuff, I spent a while looking into this and have decided the 12lb should be about right on the tackle box test it shows up at 0.34 line and breaking at 17lb odd this makes it as good as most 15lb line but should cast a little better than the 15lb Hydrotuff I am currently using 🙄

That's what I'm using (for the same reason (casting)). It's still hard as nails mate, very impressive stuff.

I didn't rate the IB Hooks. They tend to be over-sharpened imo. They're cheap compared to others and some are very sharp, but the points are very short due to too much material removal. There are also issues with consistency but some are useable. Many are not imo.

If you Google 'THE SHARPENED HOOKS THREAD' you might find a review I did of all the sharpened options available with close-up photos on another forum.

Oooooh, that's new to me, not seen it before. Let me know what it's like please mate i.e. is it wax based or petroleum jelly based (vaseline type stuff).

That's the stuff 

I just bought them to see how other people sharpen there hooks compared to me really, I have looked at most of the pro sharpened hook sites already but just fancied seeing what they were like, I will still sharpen my own I think, but I will have a look Yonny cheers 

Trig hammers are my starting point this season for 2 of my rigs wafter/snowman and Ronald they seem pretty sharp already, just a tickle and they will be bang on 

And I am just trying to find the right one for for my Hinged stiff rig now hence all the others 😁

It is an addiction I think but it's the most important but of kit we use so that's why I validate it 😁
