    I prefer the tap on a belt method, and have used them for some time. As the tap is statically connected to the main hose it gets a bit of a shoeing whilst reeling in etc, and they break.

    My question is, is there a tap available with rectus fittings, female one side and male the other so I can disconnect both the hose and pole, preserving the tap from a bashing.

    I thought they existed but I cant find them on the normal sites. (Maybe I dreamt it)

    I'm sure you could fit a quick connect on both sides of the tap if you wanted to.

    I hadn't thought of that Smurf. Thats an easy fix. Can't believe I hadn't thought of that. (....SPCleaning gives himself a good dressing down for being so stupid)

    Same, I put some glue on the red tap's thread to save losing it. I use the smaller tap that Gardiners sell now, with the disc one side and a protecta ball the other side.
