  • Stotz. Have they improved?

    The reason I ask is this...
    Years ago when they first hit the market I tried them once and thought they were utter garbage. Last weekend whilst picking some bits up I bought some out of curiosity and frustration with shot inconsistency. I must say that they seem a lot better than they were. Has anyone else who's used them from launch noticed an overall improvement?

    I’ve mentioned this on here before, if you use Preston stotz, try ZLT shot! It’s actually stotz, made as stotz for Preston ! Just branded by the place that makes them, but you get almost twice as many for the same price as Preston ! Gotta be right!!

      ZLT call them stylers and listed them long before stotz came on the market, Ted Carters stock them in a dispenser.

        In my local shop, they are just called ZLT shot Brian. They come in small round tubs in single sizes. They are actually stotz !
        Made by the same bloke who makes them for Preston but as I said a lot more for your money!

          Ted Carters web site show them as stylers, as does ZLT site but the ZLT site looked the same as about 8 years back. I had a good old chat with the owners of ZLT, when I tried to buy a bulk lot of shot for the lads who used to use the original chatbox. He confirmed that the done shot for Preston.

            They're all very similar. I won't buy stotz, perhaps because they're Preston. Used to use ZLT but my tackle shop now stock Dinsmore slot shot. All the different brands are very close quality to each other.
            I have an incidental on my left shoulder, he's always there, he's my friend.
            He says he gives me good advice. does he ?

              The two images on the ted carter website show them to be more styl-like than stotz-like

                      Do you think the coated versions would be better or worse?
