A reliable pole elastic saves a lot of issues on the bank, more importantly, lands you more fish. Cresta offers a wide range of quality elastics and accessories to elasticate your kits exactly how you want them.
Smooth Soft Elastic
Smooth is a ‘solid’ elastic that combines the best features of full and hollow elastics. The soft and forgiving stretch immediately compares to a hollow elastic but with a reduced diameter. Smooth can be effortlessly tied to any type of bung, stopper or connector. Moreover, Smooth retains its breaking strength! The wear resistance of Smooth is very high, making it suitable for intensive use in both regular and puller kit set ups.
Smooth Soft Elastic is available in 13 different sizes, each available in an easily recognizable colour. This range covers everything when fishing for silverfish and carp.
Thanks to the wear resistance, the Smooth Soft Elastic is perfect to use with a pullerslot.
|Colour||Light Blue||Grey||Black||Light Blue||Grey||White||Red||Fluo Green||Fluo Orange||Fluo Red||Fluo Green||Fluo Orange||Fluo Red|
This high-quality and wear-resistant Elastic has a hollow core, resulting in a much higher stretch factor compared to conventional Elastics. The outer sheath is also flexible and highly visible, meaning the swimming direction of a hooked fish is visible and allows you to recognize the diameter quickly. The Elastic is perfect for use in a puller kit and thanks to the additional liquid silicone, long life is guaranteed. Cresta hollow Elastics are 5 meters long, which is often enough for two kits.
Cresta Hollow Elastic is available in 11 different sizes from 1.3 to 3.5mm, covering carp and silvers for any venue type.
Easy to Knot
Hollow elastic is easy to knot to any connector or bung.
|Colour||White||Blue||Green||Grey||Blue||Fluo Orange||Fluo Green||Yellow||Red||Purple||Pink|
This wear-resistant, coloured latex is ideal for competition and recreational fishermen. Thanks to the highly recognizable colours, the Elastic is simple to follow when angling. The Elastic is not delivered on a winder meaning there is no strain on the elasticity, which guarantees long-lasting quality. The added liquid silicone ensures smooth flow through the top section. Cresta Solid Elastics are supplied in 6-meter lengths, sufficient for elasticating 2 to 3 top sections.
Cresta Solid Elastic is available in 5 sizes from 0.8 to 1.4mm.
Thanks to the controlled stretch, Solid elastics are ideal for fish like roaches or small skimmers.
Smooth Puller Slot
The Smooth Pullerslot is equipped with a PTFE wheel which allows the elastic to be pulled from the pole in an almost frictionless manner. This assists the angler when the elastic is pulled, it also has the benefit of extending the life of the elastic. Attaching the Pullerslot is a simple process thanks to the round shape. Drill a 10mm hole into a reinforced puller zone section. Place the Pullerslot into the hole with the wheel facing towards the top and glue it securely with super glue.
Advised Elastic Diameter
The Smooth Pullerslot can be used with any elastic from 1.0 to 4.0mm.
It is very easy to drill as the shape of the slot is 10mm and fully round.
Flatside Soft Pullerbeads
The Flatside Soft Pullerbeads are made from solid elastic-friendly rubber and feature a tapered hole. The bead clamps nicely on the (hollow) elastic, which can be adjusted to change the tension to your preference. The back of the bead is flattened to fit perfectly against the puller slot without protruding. The soft material prevents the bead from rattling against the pole.
Each package comes in 3 sizes to suit every diameter of elastic.
Size L: 1.20mm is suitable for hollow elastics from 1.5 to 2.2mm
Size XL: 1.5mm is ideal for hollow elastics from 1.8 to 2.6mm
Size XXL: 2.0mm is ideal for hollow elastics from 2.2 to 4.0mm
A knot prevents the elastic going through the hole. Make sure the knot is big enough.
Insert Elastic Protectors
The P.T.F.E Insert Elastic Protectors avoid any damage to an elastic during transport in a 2-part (puller) kit. Where the elastic is normally folded over 2 thin carbon walls, it now runs over elastic-friendly and rounded P.T.F.E. material. The two raised sides prevent the elastic from coming into contact with the bottom of a holdall or pole tube. In addition, the Insert protector prevents friction with the inside of the rod, making the elastic function significantly better.
The Insert Elastic Protectors are supplied in 7 different sizes from 10.0 to 13.0 mm, covering 95% of kits on the market.
The P.T.F.E Insert Elastic Protectors avoid any damage during transport to your elastics.
P.T.F.E Internal Bushes
This series of bushes is made of high-quality and uncoloured P.T.F.E. material, ensuring all types and diameters of elastic run equally with minimum resistance through the top section. These Internals should be mounted in the top section. Available in 8 sizes, from which the 4 smaller fit the 4 larger exactly. Thanks to the bore reduction system, it is possible to make a top section opening smaller so it can be used for thinner elastic diameters. For competition anglers who like to have their top sections at the exact same lengths, this system is perfect.
The Internal bushes are available in 8 sizes covering elastic up to 3.5mm
Bore Reduction System
Nr 1 fits into nr.5 – Nr 2 fits into nr.6 – Nr 3 fits into nr.7 – Nr 4 fits into nr.8
P.T.F.E External Bushes
This series of bushes are made of high-quality and uncoloured P.T.F.E. material, ensuring all types and diameters of elastic run equally with minimum resistance through the top section.
The External bushes are available in 8 sizes covering elastic up to 3.5mm
Easy to place
External bushes need to be placed over the outside of a hollow carbon top.
Soft Cap Hollow Connectors
The Softcap Hollow Connectors form a compact and highly reliable connection between the rig and pole elastic. The hard insert section has a notch on the front for fixing the main line. The back has a round opening for mounting the elastic.
The soft cap features sufficient space for the knot and has ridges on the outside for additional grip. To lock the connector, slide the cap over the notch against the head of the insert. The rubber cap prevents damaging the elastic and reduces the noise when hitting the pole while the flat underside sits flat against the tip.
The Soft Cap Hollow Connectors are available in 3 sizes in 2 different colours.
Advised Elastic diameters: Medium 1.3 to 2.0mm- Large 1.8-2.6mm – XL 2.4-4.0mm
The flat backside ensures the connector always stays straight against the pole tip.
Diamond Elastic Threader
The Cresta Diamond Eye Treader helps you elasticate your topkit, allowing any diameter and Elastic type to be fixed in the eye to pull it through the sections.
