What is pole elastic lubricant?
Fishing pole elastic lubricant is a thin lubricant that clings to the elastic of your pole. It forms a protective layer for your elastic and makes it nice and smooth too. This means that your pole elastic can glide through your pole a lot easier. Of course, the easier your pole elastic glides, the easier it is to play your fish. This lubricant, then, can keep your action smooth and can make the difference between landing a big carp or F1 and losing it.
Pole elastic lubricant can also help transfer some of the stress in your elastic back into the pole. The smoother your elastic stretches, the less stress any particular part of the elastic is under. So, your elastic lasts longer, as it spreads the stresses over the length of the elastic and some of the stress is soaked up by the pole too. So fishing pole elastic lubricant helps make playing fish smooth. It also prevents elastic fatiguing and breaking, and it helps the pole take up a bit of the stress on the elastic. All of this means you can use your elastic for longer and land more fish too!
