This braid casts superbly well, thanks to its low diameter, allowing you to bait spots right at the limit of your casting ability. You'll notice that it has a rather unusual fluoro green colour, which helps to deter seagulls when baiting up with a throwing stick or floater fishing. Gulls just won't swoop down when the hi-viz line is snaking out across your swim. It is hard-wearing and has high knot strength, which is key when you consider just how much punishment that your spod setup is subject to over the course of a year. There are 300m on each spool, so you'll be able to spool up more than once, as long as you back your spool up. We recommend that you use a 30lb Arma-Kord shock leader to take the force of the cast - you can attach this using a back-to-back grinner knot.
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!
Arma-Kord is an incredibly abrasion resistant braided line, which is also supple and relatively thin for its breaking strain. It has been designed as a high-performance snag or shock leader for extreme snag fishing or long-range work. In tests this braid proved at least 50% more abrasion resistant than the nearest competitor. Its thinner diameter and low-viz brown colour also make it far less detectable underwater.
N-Trap Semi Stiff,
The second addition to the N-Trap range is slightly stiffer than the N-Trap Soft that has been so popular since its release. The stiffer coating that Semi Stiff boasts is still easily strippable, making it easier than ever to produce top-notch bottom-bait and pop-up presentations. N-Trap Semi Stiff performed extremely well when used on the underwater filming at St Johns. It is available in Weed Green, Silt and Gravel and in 15lb, 20lb and 30lb versions, to cover all UK and Worldwide situations.
This is a finely woven braid that's mega supple and ultra strong. Due to its suppleness, Supernatural will gently rest over the contours of the lake bed laying flat and out of the carp's way. This suppleness also makes it just about as good a solid-bag hook link as you can get. It's championed by the likes of Ian Poole, which shows you just how good it is. If the carp in your water have been hammered on the popular coated braids, give this a try because it presents something that is completely different to them. Supernatural is available in Weedy Green and Gravel Brown, which makes it blend in with many different lake bed types.
Touchdown is a performance mono that has been designed to help you feel more as the lead impacts the bottom. This has been achieved by reducing the stretch, while maintaining the abrasion resistance and casting performance. It sinks well and has great knot strength. We've made it available in two versions, a low-viz green and a dark brown colour to suit all the lake bed conditions that you're likely to encounter. Touchdown is available in 10lb, 12lb, 15lb and 20lb, covering you for all carp angling disciplines.
Dark Matter Braid,
This is a super-supple, super-heavy braided hook link with a clever banded-camou finish that blends in well over most lake beds. The tough fibre filaments are tightly woven, making for a supple-yet-tough hook link braid. It's been designed to sink extremely well, hugging the contours of the lake bed that you're fishing over for maximum subtlety. Dark Matter Braid lends itself to a host of rigs, including solid-bag presentations, the Slip-D rig, Darrell Peck's simple bottom bait rig and, of course, combi rigs. It's available in 15lb, 20lb and 30lb breaking strains.
Boom is a game-changing fluorocarbon! It’s our first fluorocarbon that can be crimped, which opens up a world of uses for rig tying. Its prime function is for creating stiff boom sections to help kick the hook bait away from the lead system, something Boom does each and every cast. You can use it to make combi-rigs, or out-and-out stiff rigs, for pop-ups and bottom baits alike. Your imagination is the only limit to its rig applications.
Being a fluorocarbon, Boom blends with all lake bed types and, thanks to its subtle, green tint, it’s always inconspicuous to carp feeding around it. Boom is available in 0.55mm and 0.65mm, on 15m spools.
Have you ever used a hook link that knew not to tangle? One of which the fish could hardly see, and one that made it more difficult than any other to eject? Open this packet and maybe for the very first time you will be. IQ is a fluorocarbon which refracts light in almost the same way as water, making it almost invisible when immersed. It is stiffer than normal nylon so improving anti-tangle and anti-eject properties. Team Korda have extensively field tested all breaking strains and were so impressed they were compelled to add it to the already impressive range. 10lb is ideal for finely tuned open water situations. 15lb is a superb all rounder and 25lb forms an impressive stiff link.
IQ2 Fluorocarbon is a softer version of our legendary IQ. This softness makes it a versatile hook link material, which gives free movement to even quite light hook baits, like a single grain of pop-up corn, or real maize. Just like the original IQ, IQ2 is nigh-on invisible in water. The way that light passes through the material is quite close to the way that it moves through water, rendering your hook links very difficult for carp to detect.
When it comes to tying up your Zig rigs, the new ZIG line is the perfect choice of hook link material and is purpose designed for this type of situation.
Zig Line has reduced stretch, making it a fantastic line for surface fishing as well as helping to produce strong hook holds.on zigs and on the surface.
low diameter for its breaking strain at just 0.22mm for the 7lb version; 0.25mm for 9lb; and the 11lb breaking strain line is 0.28mm. The low diameter makes it harder for the fish to see it mid-water, or on the surface due to its reduced silhouette, and these camouflage properties are aided by its tinted green colour.Despite these properties it is still quite a tough line and has a very high knot strength as long as you are careful, with Palomar and knotless knots being ideal.Zig Line comes on 100m spools
This braid casts superbly well, thanks to its low diameter, and transmits the feel of the lake bed accurately back to your rod, allowing you to find the very best feeding areas with your marker float setup. It is hard-wearing and has high knot strength, which is key when you consider just how much punishment that your marker setup is subject to over the course of a year. The Marker braid is finished in a SUB-Green colour, to make it as unobtrusive as possible. There are 300m on each spool, so you'll be able to spool up more than once, as long as you back your spool up. We recommend that you use a 30lb Arma-Kord shock leader to take the force of the cast. You can attach this using a back-to-back grinner knot.
