Thank you very much. I must have googled the wrong search terms because nothing came up.
Swing tips are trendy again! TriCast have started making (very expensive) swing tip rods once more. - Trilogy x4 Specialist Feeder Rods - Tri-Cast FishingCar boot would be a worthwhile try unless you are looking to stockpile the entire supply and corner the market when they get pushed as the new big thing again. Last time I used the swingtip on a club water I was laughed at!
Fair point. But the strike would generate more impact if you used braid. I'll be that if Ivan Marks had used braid he wouldn't have had to fall off the back of his basket when strikingI don't think that it would make any difference as far as registering bites. The pull against the tip wouldn't be enough to stretch mono so no advantage would be gained.
