NEW ! 10'' Carbon swingtips !


New ! 10'' Carbon Fibre

bespoke/handmade traditional swing tip with 2 rings.

POST FREE


This swing-tip has been hand made, in the U.K, in the same manner as a custom built rod.
It is based on a 10'' smooth ground matt finish carbon fibre blank,

The coloured tip has been built up with several layers of whipping and rod building epoxy resin
to  add a fantastic finish, a little weight and a touch of class ! 

This version has 2 rings, the single leg ring whipping is also coloured matched to the tip
.

The epoxy has intentionally been built up thicker over the coloured band  to add just a touch
of weight to give the tip some substance and a little stability against wind and wave motion/tow,
without compromising it's sensitivity.
The bottom end is tapered to make swapping over the different strength rubbers easy, ensuring a good tight fit.
The tip is paired down to take a 2.6mm 'proper' tip ring with a 6mm ceramic center that will last a
lifetime with any type of mono or braid.

This swing tip will virtually last forever, making it excellent value for money.
Brilliant for roach, crucians, tench,perch etc etc. 

















 

New Quick change Butt bite indicators

Brand new and based on a 10'' carbon fibre blank.

The rod clips are black plastic coated sprung steel and come in 3 sizes, 6-10mm, 10-14mm & 12- 16mm,
covering virtually any coarse fishing rod, and can be fished down or up the rod.


The carbon fibre  blank is smooth finished with a 12mm ceramic lined single leg ring whipped on to
the end, giving easy line passage for casting and smooth bite indication with little friction.
The coloured end is approx' 45mm long and whipped in rod building thread for brightness
and long lasting colour, and coated in several  coats of rod building epoxy
to add some weight to the tip for stability to combat wind and wave motion, without
compromising bite sensitivity.
The single leg 12mm ring has a  ceramic center that will last a lifetime with any type of mono or braid.
The ring is slotted for casting and so the indicator can be clipped on or off the rod
without the need to break it down.


These indicators will  last forever, brilliant for roach, crucians tench etc etc.

NEW ! Flouro 8'' Swingtips & 10'' Adjustable swing tips !

Some lovely new swingtips just off the twirly swing tip machine in the shape of 8'' fibreglass with twin flouro coloured bands & they look great ! Possibly by best to date and no increase in price either ! Check out the images below and also the new 10 '' Carbon fibre adjustable weight swing tips which are fantastic!


 Great new flouro thread colours for better visibility !


The bottom ring is also now done in matching thread colour and looks great ! 


 The new colours are brighter and look great in their ' twin band ' format !


Each swing tip comes with it's own set of 3 proper swing tip rubbers and an adapter, still post free !


The new adjustable weight swing tips are a superb addition to the range
and cover just about every condition you might come up against on a session!



Again, made with a matching ring whipping colour to the tip.  
 


At 10'' long these adjustable swing tips are perfect for those larger waters 
and anywhere that is open to the elements or catches the wind, the adjustable weight is around 5grams and can be positioned anywhere from right up to the single leg ring, meaning it has virtually no effect on the tip for very sensitive bites, or slid all the way down to combat tow on the water and choppy waves. 



Each swing tip comes with its own set of 'proper' Trev Tomlin style swing tip rubbers in light, medium and heavy strengths, plus a screw in adapter. 


You can see just how much adjustment you have along the length of the swing tip in this image, possible more adjustment than any other tip that's been sold in the UK, and don't forget, these tips are all individually HAND MADE  in the U.K
with pride !

A new addition to the range !

After quite a few requests and some consulting with a few folks over design and spec's I have started making some butt bite indicators, another great little indicator for those occasions, such as windy days, or really tight swims for example, when fishing a swing-tip isn't as practical.

Measuring about 10'' overall, but based on an 8'' blank as my 'standard size'  swingtips are, this is a tidy looking little bit of kit.

The rod clips are black plastic coated sprung steel and come in 3 sizes, 6-10mm, 10-14mm & 12- 16mm, covering virtually any coarse fishing rod, and can be fished down or up the rod.

 The fibreglass blank is smooth finished with a 12mm ceramic lined single leg ring whipped on to the end, giving easy line passage for casting and smooth bite indication with little friction. The coloured end is approx' 45mm long and whipped in rod building thread for brightness and long lasting colour, it is triple whipped and coated in 3 coats of rod building epoxy to add some weight to the tip for stability to combat wind and wave motion, without compromising bite sensitivity.

The single leg 12mm ring has a  ceramic center that will last a lifetime with any type of mono or braid.


Available from ebay here: Butt bite indicators on eBay UK  or directly from me
by copy/pasting this link into your browser: paypal.me/rodbuilder/14.99
don't forget to let me know which colour you want, available in bright red, bright orange & bright yellow.

New WHITE edition ! Including Red/White/Blue England colours !

After numerous requests I have yielded to demand and made some white ones !

 I had a few folks asking if I did any white ones for late evening and early morning when the light it low and folks who just prefer something a bit brighter and more obvious !

 So here they are, the first batch so far are all the v1 Tip ring only version and when I get a moment over the next week, or more to the point when the small single leg rings arrive(!), I'll make some 2 ring versions, but they are made to the exact same spec's as the black version, 2 coats of white coloured rod building epoxy, proper tip rings designed to handle mono or braid and a set of three 'Trev Tomlin' style swing tip rubbers and a standard threaded swing tip eye adapter, all packed and parceled safely and sent 1st class recorded post free for £12.99 !

To order: Either browse my current eBay listings here:

My current eBay listings

Or you can call me to check colour availability : 07784 100 752

Or send the money via PayPal and send me a text/email to let me know the swing tip colour and bands colour: You will of course get my address details in return and as with eBay I offer a 14 day returns policy if you are not completely happy with any purchase. (buyer pays return fees).

Secure Paypal Link for £12.99


 And top of the list is the England colours tip !
This is a lovely looking tip, you can celebrate lots of patriotic things with this, like the football team (ok bad example!) or #BREXIT (yay!) or just because you love the england colours (ok the white's really metallic silver but don't let that put you off!)  and you might even like them if you have French connections !
Either way, it's a funky fun colour combo that really looks great !



And also the one I like to call 'Pear Drops' as it always reminds me of them ! 





And the ever popular twin red with black . . . . . . . .  



 As always, supplied with a set of 3 'Trev Tomlin' style swingtip rubbers and a standard threaded swing-tip adapter. . . . . . . . If you would like to buy any of my tips without the rubbers or adapters I also supply them without, just give me a call, text or email.
