Guru Inline Plummets feature a unique design for unrivalled accuracy when feature and depth finding.
Available in three sizes – 10, 20 and 30g – the plummets are designed so the line goes straight through the middle of the plummet’s axis, allowing anglers to find the depth with millimetre accuracy.
Traditional plummets are designed so the line goes round the outside of the plummet, but the line isn’t straight up to the float and isn’t a true reflection of the exact depth. This new design also protects the line from contacting damaging debris on the bottom.
The three plummets feature the same hardwearing finish first seen on the Hybrid feeder range and a soft, cylindrical latex section to place the hook into. The absence of a cork or foam cylinder on the bottom of the plummet also gives more ‘feel’ when trying to find different bottom types; gravel, silt etc.
The three weights cover a wide variety of angling situations, from delicate far-margin plumbing on commercials with the 10g model to deeper venues and running water with the larger 20 and 30g sizes.
Guru brand manager Adam Rooney explained: “The Gurus have long thought the traditional design of plummet could be improved upon, and we’ve done just that with this design. Anglers can now plumb the depth and know that the measurement is extremely accurate with the line-through set-up and the orange latex section will last for a long time, unlike the cork inserts used in traditional plummets.”
“Finding the depth accurately has become more and more important for effectively targeting species such as carp, F1s and silvers when setting rigs to dead depth or just off the deck, and our Guru anglers have been raving about the design since we started testing.”
Guru Keepnets, The Guru keepnets come in a choice of 2.5m Silver Match, 3m Carp Match, or 4m International Match designs to cover a range of situations and species, and they’re all built to last for many seasons.The rings are weighted to ensure that the net sinks properly and remains stretched out, and there is an external sleeve to protect the net from wear around the rings, one of the areas that has traditionally always been weakest and the first to wear out.A fish-friendly super soft mesh has been used so that you can look after your catch as much as possible, and a dark finish helps to keep the fish calm whilst they are in the net. An over-sized top ring has been used to make it as easy, and quick, as possible to put fish in it with the landing net, with a screw thread that can be adjusted to any angle for perfect positioning. When it comes to retrieving your catch at the end of the session, smaller lower rings (the bottom three) allow you to pull the rings through to help to get the fish out for weighing in or returning them.
Flatliner Pear Inline, The condensed shape of this lead, coupled with the two flat sides makes it the perfect lead for bolt rigs at short to medium range. By its very nature the flat pear lead lends itself to being fished on marginal slopes, the sides or back or gravel bars and in rivers. But, in fact it is one of the most effective shapes at short to medium range because it holds so well on the lake bed and offers fantastic impact hooking potential. We have also seen that this type of lead is by far the most like a stone on the lake bed and during the Underwater filming this lead blended in better than any other. There's a popular misconception that flat leads sit on silt. This does not happen, any lead finds the easiest path through the water so instead of fluttering down to the lake bed, a nose-heavy flat lead like this will plummet down side on and nose first, making it less effective in the silt than say a Swivel Pear lead. Having said that, it is devastating on gravel and is Danny's first choice in these close-range, hard-bottomed situations. Danny told us that, "When Underwater part 3 I tried a Flatliner Pear on the steep gravel slope to see if it really did hook the carp quicker than a swivel lead of the same shape. To my amazement it really did! I had been testing the lead clips for so long I had ignored the inline lead - not any more!"
Krank Choddy, Not long after the Krank hook was conceived, Tom Dove hatched a plan to introduce a chod version, with an out-turned eye. His imagination was captured by the way that the continuously curving shank could mirror the curve of the chod rig, creating what many of us consider to be the ultimate chod hook. Just like the standard Krank hooks, the Krank Choddy has a beaked point and slight offset that combine to offer unrivalled hook hold security. They can of course be used with unstripped, coated braid or mono hook links to produce effective bottom-bait rigs too! The Krank Choddy is available in sizes 4, 6, 8 and 10, and in a barbless version too.
Bait Bayonets, Our Bait Bayonets make changing tough boilie or artificial hook baits quicker than ever. They're a simple, twisted metal spike with a ring on the end, which allows it to be tied to a hair rig. To mount a bait, you simply push the bayonet into the boilie, right up to the eye. This will provide a secure attachment, allowing long, forceful casts to be made, safe in the knowledge that the bait will stay on.
