Choddy, 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.
4 & 5mm Beads, Soft rubber beads that are perfect for use with the helicopter setup. They feature a bore that is wider at one end than the other, which allows them to sit tightly on top of a small Sinker, creating a super-neat naked-chod bead. We have made two sizes available, 4mm and 5mm, both of which will easily pass over leader knots, making your setup safe. Green and brown versions available.
Leadcore Chod System, The Leadcore Chod Safety System is, without doubt, the biggest advance in rotary-rig safety EVER. The specially designed Chod Sleeves, Barrel Beads and No-Trace beads combine to offer a solution to the problems that consistent hook link ejection has dogged leadcore users for years. The single most important aspect of a helicopter setup is the facility that allows the hook link to travel up and off the leader should a carp pick up a cracked-off rig or become cut off during a fight. Previously, in order for the hook link to pass over the end of the leader, allowing the carp to ditch both lead and leadcore, a relatively small-bored helicopter bead had to pass over first. This was problematic if any weed or debris collected around the leader knot or spliced loop. The design of the Chod Sleeve and No-Trace Bead eliminates this problem. The hard plastic No-Trace Bead has a huge bore and, here's the clever bit, a slot in the side that allows it to drop off the leader entirely once it has popped off the coned Chod Sleeve. This allows the size-11 Ring Swivel to proceed up and over the leader knot with ease. Another industry first for Korda! We recommend that you use the system with strong, fast-sinking main line, such as SUBline or Kontour.
