Dark Matter anti-tangle tubing is quite simply the new benchmark for rig tubing. It's the heaviest on the market, and is ridiculously easy to thread. These attributes have seen it become the tubing of choice for fussy anglers like Darrell Peck and Tom Dove. Dark Matter tubing is super limp too, which helps it to follow the contours of the lake bed, keeping your setup well hidden. We make it in three colours, Weed Green, Silt and Gravel, which allows you to closely match the tubing to the lake bed that you're fishing over.
HeliSafe, 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.
Stow Bar, Stow Bars are the ultimate snag-fishing accessory. They are rod-retaining bars that allow you to fish locked-up, with the clutch screwed down tight, without the worry that you might lose a rod on a vicious take. They are available in black and silver versions to suit your personal preference. Each lightweight aluminium retaining bar screws into the bracket independently, allowing you to fish with both bars, or just the one.
Kamakura Hooks, The sharpest possible hook, sharpened post production to the highest possible tolerance. “I’m entering my 14th year at Korda. It’s safe to say that I’ve seen wonderful products come along during that period but this is, without a doubt, the most exciting” - Ali Hamidi Along with most carp anglers around the world, we believe a sharp hook to be the single most important part of your tackle! The UNDERWATER filming and observations on various different locations around the globe has proven that an ultra-sharp hook gives you a greater chance of hooking big, wary fish. Lots of anglers have been sharpening hooks for many years, historically they did it because hooks just weren’t sharp enough out of the packet. In recent years chemically sharpened hooks led to a major improvement in hook sharpness, but even those could be improved by hand sharpening into ultra-fine points. This tricky, time consuming craft can give an angler a big advantage and help turn more pickups into actual hooked fish. Anglers like Danny Fairbrass, Darrell Peck and Elliott Gray have had to hand sharpen their hooks to get the very most from their fishing, as production constraints meant that an extremely fine point hasn’t been possible…. Until now. Korda Developments has spent years painstakingly developing and pushing boundaries in hook technology, the result being the KAMAKURA hook point - the sharpest possible hook, sharpened post production to the highest tolerance. “As an angler, product developer and Managing Director of Korda I can’t tell you how proud I am of this product. It will bring a genuine benefit to all anglers that use them.” - Damian Clarke The Kamakura hooks are sharpened post production to an extremely high tolerance. When you open the packet you will notice two standout things. The first is the consistency of the product, every single hook being sold has the same super sharpness. With consistency being the key we take pride in getting every point exactly the same. The second is a wax coating on the sharpened part of the point, this unique way of covering the tip ensures they stay in the best possible condition until they are ready to be used. Simply push the wax coating off before casting out and you’ll be fishing with the sharpest hook you can possibly imagine. “I believe this process/product not only to be a step forward in carp fishing hooks but a step forward in hook technology in general!” - Tom Dove
Kaptor Kurv Shank, These hooks represent the biggest breakthrough in hook manufacture...ever. We took our critically acclaimed Kurv Shank pattern and coated them with the industrys first coloured PTFE finish to make them blend in even better. The ultra-sharp Kaptor point has been left uncoated, because the development team had noticed that uncoated points were sharper. To preserve the eye-wateringly sharp point, each hook is capped with a rubber blob. This process ensures that the sharpest point in the carp world stays just that. Each hook is then clipped into a bespoke packet so that it stays pristine until you need it. The Kaptor Kurv Shank is available in Weed Green and Gravelly Brown camouflage. The colours have been carefully selected to closely match the most common lake bed conditions. The Korda team is in an excellent position to do this because of our extensive underwater experience. What this all means is that carp will find your rig much more.
