Guru Pole Elastic Connectors
Price: £4.99 for five connectors.
GURU have clearly put a bit of thought into these pole elastic connectors. The pole elastic knot is protected inside a bespoke bead, so UV light can’t get at it, preventing it from rotting.
You attach your pole rig to a stiff piece of coated braid, acting like a boom, to prevent tangles around your pole tip. Being stiff, it’s very ‘direct’, enabling you to ‘hit’ finicky bites.
You’ll also appreciate the subtle colour of the connectors; they’re not a bright colour, so they don’t distract your eyes away from a pole float.
Useful for slapping, splashing and laying your rig in the water, you simply lasso your pole elastic behind a small knot before sliding the bead down, to tidy it up. Pole rigs are just as easy to lasso on, too.
Available in Small, Medium and Large, to suit solid and hollow elastics, they also come on a handy holder, so that you can easily transfer them to your elastic. I like them!
