Long term usage
For the past 15 years the Drennan Polemaster In-Line Olivettes have been an essential part of the UKMA team members rig building components. These time saving bulk weights make the shotting of rigs a very simple affair, reducing the need to add large number of shot when using heavier rigs or to offer an instantly moveable bulk of weight, that enables you to adjust the position of your bulk quickly without risking damage to your rig line. Read on as the UKMA team talk you through benefits and uses for these versatile rig weights.
These stream-lined pear shaped weights feature a non-reflective camo bronze colour, which makes them near invisible when in an aquatic environment. To protect your line from being damaged whilst attached to the rig, the Polemaster In-Line Olivettes feature a silicone tube insert, which protrudes approximately 4mm at either end to act as a cushion to prevent the olivette from damaging the shot that hold it in place. The sizes are also clearly engraved on the side of all olivettes, in the range, which makes them easy to identify, ready to be used again.
How to use
When loading a 1g pole float, the UKMA team would choose an olivette that is .2 of a gram lighter than the float to compensate for drop shot and additional shot to secure the olivette in positing. Then simply thread your rig line through the narrow end of the olivette and then place a securing shot at the wider base of the olivette to secure it on the rig. then simply add droppers, and shot the float to the required sensitivity, job done!
After using the Drennan Polemaster In-Line Olivettes for well over a decade, the UKMA team members highly recommend you give them a try if you haven’t already! These versatile in-line bulk weights never come off and can be re-used time and time again. Ideal for all big river rigs, shallow rigs where you need to get the bait down and on the deck quickly when the fish are really having it, for use as a bulk when fishing close to snags and all big fish situations where a heavy bulk is required.
