On the version with no weight maps, try playing with things like the bone falloff and bone strength.

well both of those versions dont have weight maps.

i tried playing with different weight maps with no success.

i have played with the bone falloff or the strength..i shall today and let you know...thank you for replying

Someone else suggested i try an ik setup. do you think that might work and how would i go about doing it?

IK has no effect on deformations.
