You might be thinking that there isn’t really much that you can do with a pole sock, but this one has a few unique features which really make it stand out and will help you to fish more efficiently.
To prevent your pole sliding forwards, most anglers attach either a pole sock or tulip flexing grip to their seatbox, but the Reaper combines the best of both.
The Reaper features two pole socks and the clever design means that there is a tulip grip in-between them, so effectively you have a retainer that will hold three separate sections of pole.
The frame is strong and durable, as are the ‘socks’ themselves, and there is plenty of protection around the edge of it to prevent any chance of damage to delicate pole sections, thanks to an EVA foam coating. The thick mesh used for the sock also provides plenty of protection for pole sections.
Plus the socks are large enough that even the largest pole sections are easily located within them, with the depth of the sock made to make it as easy as possible, without having to pay too much attention whilst unshipping as you play a fish. The pole sock will hold anything from a single number four section, right the way up to a full 16m pole minus the top three.
The Reaper pole section retainer is easily attached to seat box arms, and similar, via a universal metal screw thread.
Conti & QM1 Disgorgers, Two disgorgers that have been designed to help you unhook fish more easily and safely, which should be every angler's concern. The QM1 is the shorter disgorger, and it has been designed for all-round work, with hook patterns like the effective QM1 in mind. The Conti is a longer disgorger, that has been designed for use when feeder fishing with longer hook links, where deeper hook holds might be encountered, especially with bream. Both patterns feature a specially designed head is rounded to minimise damage and allows you to pop the hook out easily and safely. Both are made from robust plastic, with a super-strong cross-shaped cross section, and will last well, and have an easy-grip rubberised handle which can be held securely, even in the wet!
4" QM1 Bait Band, These short ready-tied rigs have been designed for use with the Method, Hybrid and Pellet feeders. They're tied with bait bands, which make baiting with hard pellets child's play. They're tied with the radical QM1 hooks, which provide first-class hook holds and allow you to bank more fish, when you need it most. This pattern of hook makes the absolute most of the self-hooking potential of the bolt effect given by these modern methods.
4" QM1 Speed Stop, These ready tied rigs are tied with the all-conquering QM1 hooks, which are guaranteed to provide the most secure hook holds going. The rigs are four inches long, which makes them perfect for use with conventional Method, Hybrid and Pellet feeders. Speed Stop bait attachments allow for the speedy mounting of soft baits such as luncheon meat, worms and corn, as well as boilies.
Wide Gape, The Wide Gape hook has become a true design classic, and has accounted for more big carp than any other pattern. It was based on the cult Maruta Kinryu pattern that found favour with the likes of Terry Hearn in the 1990s. The five-degree in-turned eye, short shank, heavily forged bend and beaked point combine to give anglers a hooked-to-landed ratio far in excess of anything else that's achievable. It can be used for pop-up and bottom-bait presentations and is the hook to opt for when fishing for the very biggest and trickiest carp around.
