PRESTON Hollo Elastic
NEW 7 Hollo is perfect for a wide range of species and venues. Ideal for commercial silverfish such as skimmers, bream, and winter F1 fishing. Equally effective on lakes, canals and rivers for smaller species like roach, perch, bream, etc.
Manufactured from the very highest quality raw materials available and to the strictest quality standards, Hollo Elastic delivers trouble-free, consistent performance. Hollo Elastic is available in 6 different strengths to suit all carp fishing situations from 9H up to a very powerful 19H. Thoroughly tested by our consultants, Hollo Elastic comes in 3m lengths in a sealed bag that ensures it stays in perfect condition. The ratings correspond to normal elastic ratings, so a 13H rating is between 12 and 14 normal elastic strength. Due to a special manufacturing process, injecting lubricant inside the elastic is not required.
Make sure your elastic works properly...
To play carp correctly, with large diameter elastics over size 10, or Hollo, you need to cut your pole tip back (sometimes quite a lot) or remove the number 1 section completely. Whichever you choose to do you must make sure the tip doesn’t bend too much. If it does the elastic will stick to the inside of the top section and not work properly.
How far you cut back the tip may determine which type of bush you can fit. If you cut it back a long way to make it ultra stiff, the internal diameter of the tip may be too large to fit a standard internal bush. In this case use an XLarge Internal Bush or a Slip Stretch external bush.
Many top anglers remove the number one section and fit an internal or external Stretch Slip Bush straight onto their number 2 section. This produces an ultra stiff tip and guarantees smooth elastic performance.
