ESP Barrel Bobbins

£16.95

The highly versatile Barrel Bobbin kits include everything required to provide excellent bite indication in most carp fishing situations.

 

All components apart from the ball chain are machined in the UK in our own factory, ensuring exceptional quality and precision. The bobbins have an aesthetically pleasing barrel shape - a refreshing departure from the standard cylindrical shape of most bobbins.The two stainless ball chains have a unique feature where we have used a plastic connector at one end and a 3g stainless connector at the other. This allows the chain to be simply reversed to add weight to the bobbin when required. Also adding the 3g stainless add-on weight integrated into the hockey stick increases the weight further and means that the PTFE bobbin can be used at weights of 5g, 8g or 11g and the acrylic bobbins at 3g, 6g or 9g.

This makes for a highly versatile set up suitable for everything from slack line fishing where a light bobbin is used to tight line fishing at range with the weight of the bobbin increased to the maximum.

The interchangeable line clips simply allow the bobbin to be fished running on the line with the ball clips or gripping the line 'Elstow style' with the grip clips. The 3" ball chain is best suited to this setup, with the bobbin fished on a short drop near the bite alarm.

Each kit contains:

  • Barrel Bobbin
  • Interchangeable ball clips
  • Interchangeable grip clips
  • 3" and 7" stainless steel reversible stainless ball chains
  • 3g stainless add-on weight
  • Stainless steel hockey stick

Available in:

  • White PTFE
  • Acrylic red
  • Acrylic blue
  • Acrylicpurple
  • Acrylic orange
  • Acrylic green
  • Acrylic yellow

 


 

Metal Head Barrel Bobbin

For long-range specialists, there is also a stainless Metal Head Barrel Bobbin.

The Metal Head Barrel Bobbin interchanges with the coloured Barrel Bobbins and weighs 15g and with the stainless chain connector and add-on weight incorporated can be increased to 21g. This extra weight improves bite indication at range on a tight line and especially in windy conditions. Kev Hewitt favours the Metal Head for most of his fishing and especially when zig fishing at range with a heavy lead where it comes into play for indicating dropbacks.

The interchangeable line clips simply allow the bobbin to be fished running on the line with the ball clips or gripping the line 'Elstow style' with the grip clips. The 3" ball chain is best suited to this setup, with the bobbin fished on a short drop near the bite alarm.

 


 

Isotope

These super bright isotopes are designed to fit the slot in the Barrel Bobbin.

The isotopes are sleeved in a clear PVC tube which not only protects the glass isotope but also provides a snug interference fit in the slot without the need for glue or sealant.
