ESP Acrylic Barrel Bobbin
The kits include: Barrel Bobbin with interchangeable ball clips Interchangeable grip clips 3” and 7” reversible stainless ball chains 3g stainless add-on weight Stainless hockey stick 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.
For long range specialists there is also a stainless Metal Head bobbin available separately. This weighs 15g and with the stainless chain connector and add-on weight incorporated, can be increased to a weighty 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 drop backs.
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 set up, with the bobbin fished on a short drop near the bite alarm.
