This timeless sunglasses style is uber-cool, and there are three versions to choose from, all of which have the finest quality lenses. First, we have the matt-tortoiseshell Classics with a brown lens. Then, there’s the matt-black framed version, which boasts grey lenses, and finally there’s the demi-tortoiseshell models with yellow lenses.
Lightweight Hoodie Black,
These new lightweight hoodies have been designed with both tailoring and flexibility in mind. They’re made from a cotton/polyester/spandex mix that’s light, stretchy and washes well. They’re a snug fit, but the spandex element allows total freedom when casting.
These are not your average outdoor trousers! The deeper you look into their design and features, the more breathtaking attention to detail is revealed. Our in-house fashion designer remodelled the military combat trouser, with style and carp-fishing functionality firmly in mind. The brief was to improve an outdoor classic, and he's done just that. The Original Kombats are lightweight, and quick drying, so you'll quickly dry out from an unscheduled dip, or a heavy summer shower. The material chosen is a 150gsm ripstop fabric that's stretchy, so the Kombats won't rip as you move and it also features innovative mountaineering-grade mosquito repellent and moisture-wicking technology. There are nine pockets on the trousers, both external, and cunningly hidden, so you can keep all your essentials with you at all times, without fear of losing them. The Original Kombats are available in dark olive and rifle green, and in the following sizes: S(w30), M(w32), L(w34) XL(w36), 2XL(w38), 3XL(w40) all regular leg length.
3-Rod Buzz Bars,
These buzz bars have been machined from stainless steel to the highest standards possible by JAG Products. There are four sizes in the range, which allow you to mix and match to create the splay that you want between the rod tips. Go from no splay at all by choosing matching buzz bars for back and front, to massive splay by choosing the narrowest at the back and the widest at the front, and everything in between!
These adjustable upright sections are available in three sizes (3.5in, 5.5in and 6.5in) so that your rods can be set up exactly how you want them. They have been precision engineered by stainless wizards JAG Products, to guarantee that they're the best quality available.
Ensure that your rod tips are level by adjusting the knurled collar on the top of the upright.
These clever stabilisers have been machined from stainless steel by JAG Products, and prevent your Singlez System from twisting on violent takes.We recommend using a stabiliser at the back and front of your setup.
It took three years of rigorous testing to develop a fluorocarbon main line that ticked all the boxes - one that casts unbelievably well, is invisible in water, sinks like a brick and is highly abrasion resistant. In fact, it's pretty much all Danny Fairbrass uses. Kontour, as it is known, is very soft compared to many other fluorocarbons, allowing it to quite literally peel from the spool smoothly as your lead flies through the air. This aids casting distance and accuracy. It is also particularly heavy, ensuring that it sinks to the lake bed keeping flush and out of the carp's way. Launched in one breaking strain, namely 12lb, it will be suitable for all manner of situations and due to its genuine knot strength will be strong, reliable and user friendly.
Black & White Bobbins,
The Black & Whites are a bobbin that we believe offers the ultimate in performance and functionality, alongside classic style and versatility. They perform as well as they look, and they look great!
There are four sizes in the range, and each comes with two interchangeable weights, so depending on the situation you are faced with, and what you want your indicators to achieve, you can customise the weight and tension applied to your line. Also supplied are two different length chains - the standard 6 inch and a longer 9 inch version - for you to choose between, depending on personal preference.
The Hockey sticks that come with the Black & Whites are fully compatible with the Stow range of indicators, so once you have attached the magnetic bayonet-style hockey sticks supplied with your Black & Whites, you can change between styles instantly, without having to unscrew your alarms.
The Black & Whites have a mechanism that runs through the body of the bobbin, allowing you to adjust the grip-strength of the line clip with a simple twist, again allowing for unrivalled customisation of the hanger. The Black & Whites are a two-sided design, one a solid white or black plastic, and the other a clear plastic that houses the super-bright new Mini Isotopes.
We believe there is a bobbin in the range for every fishing situation you will find yourself in, and whether you choose the black or white version, you can do it in fine style with the glorious Black & Whites sat proudly on your set-up.
Korda operations director Damian Clarke explained:
“The original idea behind having clear and white came from an angler who was fishing on Becontree Lake, in Dagenham, he was making monkey climbers in that style and we thought they would make a great bobbin design.
“The Stow indicators have been incredibly popular, but there are plenty of anglers out there who prefer a bobbin that hangs on the line, so the Black & Whites are the perfect choice for them. They have an integral, adjustable line clip, and have a very classic look which is different to other bobbins already on the market."
Line Saver Bead,
These clever tungsten-rubber beads take the naked-chod setup to the next level of sophistication. They take the place of the lower bead on the naked setup, against which the chod swivel sits on the cast or during a fight. The upper portion of the bead is tapered so that the swivel can slide along it, coming to rest against the body of the bead when a fish is hooked. this removes the chance of the main line being damaged during a tough battle. The Line Saver Beads are impregnated with tungsten, which will help the naked-chod setup to sit flush with the lake bed, improving a deadly rig even further. Supplied in packs of eight.
Mouthtrap has been designed to create the ultimate stiff rig. During testing there is one element that particularly stood out for the lads involved in the team it was easier to manipulate than any other stiff material on the market, without the hassle of steaming over a kettle, which takes up valuable fishing time and extra effort. Due to its unique make-up and high memory, the material retains a perfect curve when formed. Consequently, it creates the perfect hinged-stiff rig or chod rig that so many of us incorporate into our angling. In other words, we have developed the BEST stiff filament out there. Mouthtrap, which is available in 15lb, 20lb and 25lb, is finished with a natural carpy' tint that will blend in with any background, something that is the highest priority of Team Korda. So, if you're after a true stiff rig material that is better than anything else on the market, take a look, you won't be disappointed!
Our first bait floss is the perfect addition to our chod kit. Its absolutely perfect for tying on pop-ups of all descriptions, especially cork ballers. The floss is flat in profile, which helps it to grip the surface of even the hardest, smoothest pop-ups. Once youve tied the bait on, using the knot shown below, simply run a cigarette lighter flame around the floss, which will render it transparent. Each spool holds fifty metres of floss, which will last ages!
We've been working on a solution to a problem that anglers been faced with for some time, how to safely and consistently discharge the lead when fishing with a helicopter setup. In order to be a true game-changing product, the Heli-Safe had to fulfill some important criteria... One such criterion was the ability to fish chod rigs at range. The heavy leads needed to fish at long range often become a problem once a fish is hooked. The combination of a very short hook link and large lead would often result in dropped fish. Likewise, venues that had been choked by weed often dictated that dropping the lead was paramount, something that just isn't consistently possible with conventional systems. The demand from anglers to produce a drop-off lead system for use in these situations pushed us to develop the product you see before you. The Heli-Safe System enables you to drop the lead when the situation calls for it. When used in conjunction with our unique Helicopter Safety System and unique No-Trace Beads, you can fish a rotary-rig setup in situations that would have previously led to the loss of hooked fish. The system works by employing a pressure-release function, not seen in the angling world until now. The latched lead clip will open once a hooked fish pulls against the angler, allowing the lead to drop free. By threading a Barrel Bead onto the leader above the Heli Safe, you will prevent the lead from discharging, should you pick up weed or other detritus on the retrieve. Once engaged in battle though, the bead will simply pull down and allow the lead to discharge. The unique design enables the angler to choose when to drop the lead, and when to retain it. In situations where it's not necessary to discharge the lead, a small plastic collar (which is supplied in the kit) can be fitted to fix the lead in place.
The Heli-Lead has been designed specially for use with the Heli-Safe bead and are available in both green and brown. By fitting a ring to the lead loop, rather than a swivel, the attachment is kept super neat, yet flexible enough to ensure that the lead is only discharged when you want it to be. The leads are finished with a robust camouflaged paint that blends in superbly well over a range of lake beds and are available in sizes from 1.5oz up to 4oz
• Please Note: Due to varying stock throughout our stockists, lead colours may vary. If you have any specific requests please contact the retailer with the details provided after your purchase is complete.
The Korda Katapult was a long time in development, but it was worth it! The result is the perfect range of catapults and accessories, which will cover you for baiting at short and long range, with particles or boilies. We've made a Heavy Katapult, which is teamed with a small pouch for firing boilies a long way, and the Light Katapult, which has a larger pouch and is perfect for mass baiting with particles. The special rotating collars, into which the elastics fit, help to reduce annoying twist, and increase the life of your elastics. Spare pouches and spare elastics are available.
These distance sticks make fishing accurately child’s play. Rather than simply produce a me-too product, we decided to produce the best sticks that we could. That meant teaming up with JAG Products, who engineer to the highest standards we could find!
Each stick is a thing of beauty, with special grooves to prevent the line from spilling off, causing the dreaded bird’s nest. They also come supplied with a T-Bar, which can be used to drive the specially designed excavator auger point into even the hardest of ground.
Integrated spirit levels in the top of each stick allow for perfect positioning, and pop out to reveal a cavity, which accepts an isotope to allow you to wrap-up, even at night!
This hook was designed primarily for use with the popular chod and hinged stiff rig presentations, alongside a stiff filament like Mouth Trap. However, its appeal doesn't end there, it's a super all-round pop-up hook, which can be used with rigs like Darrell Peck's N-Trap pop-up rig, as well as Tom Dove's N-Trap bottom-bait rig. To allow the sweeping curve of the chod rig to continue unhindered up onto the hook, the Choddy has an out-turned eye. The rest of it's shape is based around the magical dimension of the iconic Wide Gape pattern, with all its attendant hold-and-hold capabilities. The Choddy is thicker in the wire than the standard Wide Gape, which makes it perfect for the biggest carp in the world. Darrell Peck has landed fish to over 70lb on the size-eights, which gives you an insight into the incredible properties that this hook possesses.
If you use chod rigs, or hinged stiff rigs then you're going to want one of these neat cases. They're an impact-proof way to curve and store up to 28 perfect Mouth Trap hook sections, of a range of lengths. Two different diameter sections allow you to set, and keep both short and longer pre-tied chod rigs in the perfect fish-catching curve. What's more, there's also space for three pre-tied leadcore leaders (or similar) with Heli-Safe beads attached. Those clever design bods have engineered a pop-up handle to allow you to steam your chods into the perfect curve, without burning your fingers too! The ChodSafe is finished in a soft-touch rubber and features a neat magnetic closure system to prevent it opening in transit. Each ChodSafe comes with thirty pins to secure your rigs to the foam-lined cylindrical sections.
These size-eleven ring swivels have been subtly re-engineered to allow for putty to be securely moulded around the barrel. We'd noticed that most anglers used our size-11 ring swivels when making chod rigs, or the hook section of a hinged stiff rig. The team set about designing a swivel that would provide more purchase for the putty counterweight. These little beauties are the result...
This beautifully sculpted piece of anodized aluminium is just the thing to help you create the finest chod rigs and stiff rigs imaginable! It features a tapering point to allow you to tease the D-rig into the perfect shape as well as a mushroom cap for tensioning swivel knots, and a recess for forming perfect loops. In fact the tapering diameter of the whole tool can be used to round loops of various sizes. Indispensible for the angler who wants to tie chod rigs like the masters!
Dark Matter Putty,
The release of Dark Matter Tungsten Putty brings rig putty into a new era. Gone are the days when you had to heat your putty on the kettle to make it workable - Dark Matter is super malleable, allowing easy moulding round swivels, Sinkers, tubing or main line. It's available in two camou colours, Weed Green and Gravel Brown, both of which are very subtle and will blend in over a range of lake bed conditions. Once you've used Dark Matter putty, you won't go back to using anything else.
Our ready-tied chod rigs really are perfection in a packet! Not only are they super-convenient, they're also flawlessly tied. In fact, we're not sure that any of our experienced chod-rig anglers, Danny Fairbrass included, could tie a neater version! Each rig has been tied to exacting standards, using the same knots and techniques that Danny uses for his own rigs. That means that each ready-tied rig has been constructed using Dan's special whipping knot, which gives unrivaled neatness and allows the knot to sit perfectly on the shank. What's more, rather than simply releasing one version, we've taken into consideration the fact that some anglers prefer short choddies, whereas others like a longer version, and released both types. So, if you like your choddies short like Darrell Peck's naked chod rig or, you prefer them longer, like Adam Penning's traditional leadcore rig, then you'll find a rig to suit. The rigs are tied with Mouth Trap, which instantly places them above all the other ready-tied chods on the market, simply because it's the most workable stiff-rig material ever! If your ready-tied chod gets knocked out of shape during a battle, you can simply work it back into shape. The Mouth Trap is tied to the ever-reliable Choddy hook, which practically guarantees a secure hook hold. The rigs are available in both bardbed and barbless versions, which come supplied in packs of three.
