Undertape colours:

Undertape colours relate to weather / light conditions.

Gold & Silver Tape

It has a very good appeal, strong light reflection, a good choice in bright and sunny situations.

Pink Tape

Suitable in medium light to cloudy conditions.

Rainbow tape

A good all round colour

Red Tape

Ideal in low light, early morning or afternoon conditions.

Purple Tape

Suitable for both day and night and low light conditions.



Cloth Colour

Cloth colour relates to water colour and squids activity.

It is always a good idea to start with a bright colour like pink or orange as these colours work best if the squid are active.

If these bright colours do not produce a result it is recommened to change to a natural or darker cloth colour (blue, brown, olive). These natural or darker colours work best if the squid are shut down or not interested in the bright colours.
