All the time for trotting - can't be beaten IMHO. And I also have an old aerial loaded with 15Ib bullet braid for stalking carp.

Kev,

Can't beat a Pin for trotting of the tip of a rod.

But you don't see many Top Matchmen using Pins on rivers, most use good fixed spool.

I wonder if you are fishing at range with say a stick float a fixed spool would be a better option ?

I don't fish at range with a stick float, often:) I prefer trotting at short range with a pin (preferably from in the water in waders), and choose my venues accordingly.

If i'm forced to, I use a closed face.

Use them for heavy trotting for chub and also lift float laying on for close in carping. okuma sheffield and marco cortesi jobbies.

i use a youngs heratige pin trotting with light line for roach/dace, but as posted sometimes get the closed face reel out 1st.

I use one (Adcock Stanton)- Have used it for about 15 years now for all my trotting and margin staking for carp - FANTASTIC bit of kit
