    I need a napier pull through, any one know if they do them on their own?

    Got the rest of the kit (Spray, patches etc) so don't really want to buy complete kit again just for the pull through unless I have to??

    I've got some 60 pound fishing shock leader - brilliant pull through cord.

    Do you want me to post you a few metres, you can make your own.

    the Napier pull throughs are pretty useless , they break too easily , chris c makes a nice one . failling that try using target reset string ,if you double it up it works a treat and guaranteed to last longer than the napier one.

    I have one but dont use it, the kevlar loop hasnt lasted long and is on the verge of breaking, also they have a brass lug holding the kevlar loop on, not keen on it as it may damage the barrel.
    ChrisC makes some fantastic one's that i use now, if you ask him nicely he may tell you how to make one :D

    I made one using target reset cord about 15 years ago and still going strong. Just double it and tie a knot about an inch up to form a loop, get a small piece of 6mm brass rod and drill a small hole through it to make your handle and job done

    No worries mate. You should give the Classic a go, it's a brilliant weekend.

    I make my pull throughs with 20 or 30kg, plastic coated steel conger/pike trace and then heat shrink over the top for extra protection with a dowel handle. My last one went 8 years before it finally snapped:).

    I have a couple spare so if anyone going to the Classic would like one then please come and find me...first come first served and only a couple left.:)
