Does anyone know if Elasticum trace wire is still available and, if so where from please? I bought some so called easy twist wire from fishing republic and it is ******* crap.

noodle i use the same and like it, tryed winchwood but half way through the spool it was all knotted.
i use crimps for my traces, any benefits with twisting..... or is it each to their own.

I use the Fox easy twist for deadbaiting and find it to be cheap and does the job well.

its each to their own really greg, the only things i can think of are that to me although crimping is faster and possibly less fiddly, twisting provides a stronger link that is less likely to slip under strain. i twist all of my wire traces for these reasons.
also like noodle i use drennan 7 strand in 20/24lb for deadbait traces, although i prefer 30lb fox easy twist for lure traces.

greg its all down to what you feel cumfy with.
try and use as many different wires as you can and form your own mind,
some people sware by one wire others another. ive tried em all some you will like better because of price, look, user freindly or fashion?
try and cadge a couple of foot of freinds and try before you buy.
above all you must feel confident in which you choose and use.

Ive just made a few up with the Fox Carboflex 30lb & like it very much. Watching a Fox DVD has influenced me into using it somewhat Rolling Eyes

Pegley Davis..? I remember using their hooks in the 70's. I might have a spool of elasticum somewhere.

ted carters had alasticum in last year havnt seen it since though

wire is a big thing everyone swears by one and swears at the others i got into carboflex by accident nowhere had the drennan in locally a couple of years back so i bought the easy twist and the carboflex every trace i made with the easytwist i could snap with my hands the carboflex though takes leads of five ounces and bait being cast on a 3.5 rod as far as i can throw it and comes back looking fine fish after fish

For 99% of traces for bait fishing I use Mason's multistrand trolling wire that you can get from Veal's mail order and the price is right as well £21.48 for 600 feet.
https://www.veals.co.uk/acatalog/Wire.html

For up-traces its Carboflex in 40lb, but I have recently been trying "Bleeding Wire" from ET in the 45lb strain.

Alasticum wire was distribited by a company in Reddich years ago I bought a load of it then that would be 8 years back the guy told me that that would be the last of it, the guy also sold I think Partridge trebles , I did see some at the Lure convention near London about two years ago I think the dealers name may be on the packets I'll have a look and post it up for anyone who's intered

Thanks to everyone. Now I know how to spell it correctly !!!!, I have tracked a supplier down : www.diylures-flies.co.uk It is available in two breaking strains, 20lb. and 28lb. and its £4.95 a spool plus £1.75 PP. They have lots of other stuff too. Hope this is of interest to you all.
