Been reading thru old posts on this forum and want to know if anyone is still using power gum loops especially BA as he had a good instructional post on them and was swearing by them. I’ve just sourced some and want to set up our corner lines off the riggers and thought this would be the way to go. Cheers

Thumbs Up I still use them when I want a lure or more often now a live-bait to stay in that spot.

Read this and at 1st instance thought thread is a a bit tongue in cheek..
 We never stop learning.
 So googled, and came up with this old thread from here yrs ago..which original thread maybe referring to.


Real interesting concept/ thread/ and subject

I use power gum have done for years, I use it for surfcasting and LBG fishing prefer the yellow colour, use it for stop knots and setting the depth of live baits - fantastic stuff, recommended it , I import it from the UK and use to distribute in Aussie and NZ, not many use it for boat fishing these days - alot dont know what it is

I still use a similar product for setting loops in my lines for attaching to outrigger release clips.

Can be purchased from spotlight stores - a jewellery item

I tried that stuff but couldn't get any strong enough. Do you double it up?
