when using a dacron connector on hollow or solid latex, what knot do you use to connect to elastic?

make a single overhand? knot in the end of the elastic.
then loop the dacron over itself (as in a loop to loop hooklength knot.
then insert the pole elastic into the double loop , tighten slowly the dacron down onto just above the knot.
easy to see in a picture than describe lol

when using the hollow/latex elastic, can you use a bead and dacron, and if so how do you put it onto the elastic or isnt it possible?

You can use a Korda helicopter bead as these have larger holes than the Nash TT beads. I buy mine off a kid on ebay 6 for Â£3.25 either TT or Korda beads or a mixture of both, all tied with 30lb dacron with heat sealed knots, really good quality and rapid delivery.

kk, thanks i will have to get some of them, can you just simplyt slide over laggy, do a crows foot or something else, put dacron and slide bead over knot? or i was thinking of doing really tiny loop, then just looping dacron over and pulling bead over small loop perhaps?
