Rather than simply producing a standard bomb, which have remained largely unchanged since they were invented, Alex Bones decided to look at exactly what the modern angler needed from a lead. The Square leads are the result and they've been tailored to fishing on sloping lakebeds, such as those found around islands and margins. Because the fishing on many commercial waters now centres on these spots, it's vital that the lead can't roll down the slope when it's landed bang on the money. The flat sides of the square lead ensure that it won't. What's more, the dumpy, compact shape makes for the best bolt-rig effect possible, meaning that you'll hook more fish than with conventional leads. Because these leads are a little heavier than many used for match or pleasure fishing they are particularly effective at counteracting the drag effect of a PVA bag as it flies through the air. The Square leads are finished in with a coating that's been formulated to match the lakebed found in most commercial venues. There are three sizes of lead available, on third of an ounce, two thirds of an ounce and one ounce.
Super Tight Line Stops, These durable rubber stops have a multitude of uses for float and feeder fishing. They're so tight that, once slid off the convenient sprew, they won't slip, even on fine-diameter line. They are available in three sizes, small (5mm), medium (6mm) and large (7mm). Guru's Adam Rooney explains why they're so good, We all use line stops and for years we have used other brands, so we thought, why not do our own? Rather than copying what was available, we discussed the key features we all wanted from the simple stops and produced these three sizes, which make a nice addition to the range.
LWG, These hooks have been tested for some time (indeed, you may have seen them on the Guru website in features!) and launched in 2013 in both eyed and spade-end versions. They're made from a lovely, light wire that will handle everything up to, and including, match-sized carp. They're a super all-round hook that is perfect for use with pellets, maggots and sweetcorn on a range of waters. They're favoured by Guru match ace Andy Bennett and he uses them to amass huge weights from commercials up and down the UK.
