Fishing a winter league team match yesterday and the bream/ tench fishing was very very slow, I noticed a lot of the more experienced match anglers started fishing to hand with whips , I feel I need to add one of these bad boys to my armoury , my question is fixed line or elasticated ????

Question is are you likely to encounter bigger bonus fish, if not the flick tip is the way to go, it will still deal with the occasional bonus fish with TLC. If better fish are more regular the elastic can help!!

Not that it matters but if you highlight the text then hold shift and press F3 it will change the text to lowercase without needing to re-type.

Boring fact for ou there lol.

If it has elastic it's not a whip. It is then just top couple of sections of your pole to hand.




Average club angler who seems to get the right methods sorted halfway through a match, just in time to say "if only"

I've just got into whip fishing...really enjoying it...at the weekend spent an hour on the pole for 3 small fish then went on the whip....ended up with over 18lb of silvers. Great method!! :)

I have a Daiwa system whip, it comes with both a flick tip and a match top 2 so it gives me both options I will use the flick tip if i am really just getting small fish and the match tip with a No4 elastic if there is a chance of the odd bonus fish, yes I agree once you put an elastic in it is just a short pole but at least it gives me the option of both especially if I need to short line as it is a take apart not telescopic

I'm considering taking about 10cm off one of the flick tips to make it just slightly more beefy.....what is the best way to trim down a solid carbon tip?

just use a junior hacksaw .put a bit of tape around the tip first ,this will stop splintering .

I use a middy xflex 4g. I have landed fish to 10Ib comes with spare top section. Must admit it took a while to get the larger fish in but the whip managed. I don't go anywhere without it.

You will bump fish if you do that, the idea if the flick tip is it is soft and acts like an elastic does.

Hi Blue

This is on a Prestons absolute whip....I've got the 4m and 5m versions.
The 5m has a slightly longer & finer tip than the 4m.
I used the 4m on Saturday and ended up with over 18lb of silvers with a couple of missed bites but no bump-offs, so it worked fine.
So my thinking was to make it the same as the 4m, which still has a fine tip...about 1mm. The 5m tip is about 0.6 to 0.7mm

I have several Whips (3 Mtrs 5 Mtrs and 7 Mtrs) non of them are elasticated whips and all have very fine flick tips enabling fine hooklengths to be used when needed.

The 5 mtr whip is hardly ever used simply because the bottom 2 sections of the 7 mtr whip are push in sections which can be added and removed so it can also be used at 5 mtrs and still have 2 more sections to add if I hook a rogue carp.

Although it is not designed for big fish it can still deal with the odd 5 or 6lb fish because I can add the put over sections at will while I am playing the fish.

I bought my whips mainly for winter matches on the canals and they have all been instrumental in getting me placed in quite a few winter team matches over the years plus they are quite good fun to use.

Winter league!?

Where was this? I don't own a whip and very rare I think I'm missing out.
