    Thanks Spadger - I guess there's an argument for both sides but its whether its worth the risk of potential damaging your kits for the sake of a handful more fish. As a club angler looking to move on to the open scene I was just looking for potential improvements to allow me to try and compete with open regulars. (I appreciate that takes time and venue knowledge is king).

    Personally i dont think it makes the slightest bit of Difference.
    I have had carp line up under the Shadow of the pole.
    I drew next to an angler a few years ago who had a White Top on his pole.
    There were loads of Carp just sitting there right under the length of the Black sections !! .
    Surprisingly the last 3 section's never had a single fish anywhere near ,
    Obviously the White paint had spooked them.

    I spoke to. Dennis white many years ago on a division 2 national about this, he first painted his over 30 years ago.

    His weren't grey or white they where a very pale grey blue. He tried to replicate the colour of the underside of a herons neck as he reasoned they where good anglers and the colour must be an advantage.

    Still not convinced but who was I to argue with one of the greatest anglers in the history of our sport.

    Good Luck with your progression onto the Open Circuit .
    Don't set yourself up for a fall by expecting to start winning straight away,
    It will take time ,
    Just take your time & practice when ever possible

    Appreciate the advice Col thank you, will probably be in touch for some venue advice when I decide which ones to target. I prefer mixed fisheries rather than all carp fishing.

    Painting your top kits will not give you an advantage on the open scene, learning how/when to feed and where to fish will give you an advantage.

    That is exactly what i believe Paul .
    It was 1976 when Keith 1st appeared with his very Pale Blue rods ,i remember a lot of us having a good look
    many hours of Conversation was spent between all the Anglers Fishing the Business mens opens @ Holte Fleet .
    Got a lot of us thinking !!
    But did it make a Difference ?
    Well other than to give Keith a Confidence Boost.
    i really do Not think it made the Slightest bit of Difference .
    To me it's all in the Mind
    .Practice ,Ask Questions ,Fish as often as you can !!
    Not necessarily on a Match .But go out walk say 6 pegs ,get a few pieces of cardboard with numbers on draw a number ,& fish the peg for 5 hrs monitor how much you improve, Keep a diary note any problems you may have & work on them
    Good luck mate
