So what have I used these elastics for and why do I like them? The no.8 Dura is great for positive roach and skimmer fishing in deep water, ide fishing, F1 fishing in shallow water, and obviously extreme situations as explained above.The no.10 is my choice for cool-water carp and F1’s from 2lb to 5lb, big skimmers in deep water, and shallow fishing for F1’s and carp to 5lb.
One key little tip that Adam Waken has pioneered is to double up the elastic in key area’s (your Dacron connector and puller kit). The best way to do this is to simply thread a length of elastic onto a baiting needle, then pull it over the top of the area that you want to reinforce. This way you are left with ‘double Dura’ - a combination that is yet to let me down.
