    All fishing stores I been in had bait elastic in stock. Most variations work well, not a fan of extra thick bait elastic.

    PierMaster, do you know if the other Andrew is still around? I haven’t seen him since the start of the year.

    The stuff from the warehouse is crap. Pete at brighton sports has some red bait elastic that streches well without breaking and seems to keep my bait on well. About $2.50 a roll last time I brought some.

    I usually only use the black magic brand and its good stuff.Is there really much of a difference between brands? I would of thought it was all cut from the same stuff….anyway I have on occasions resorted to using a spool of normal cotton pinched out of the mrs sewing kit because the shops were never open when I needed it :evil:

    I have had no problems with the ryoshi/ryobi or similar sounding brand from the warehouse. I normally keep several rolls on hand because it is easy to lose. I buy and use any thin looking bait elastic, it is just elastic at the end of the day nothing super high tech.

    edit: Smith city (at-least the Blem branch) has bait cotton at the moment, I did not buy any but it appears to be a stocking like material which can completely cover extra soft baits like mussels. Next time they have a sale I would buy a pack or three.
