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.
Swivels, The humble swivel completes the whole rig set up and since it is almost the last connection between you and the carp it needs to be reliable. We always bought swivels from the same source, until our suppliers' supplier merged with a new company. The stocks were mixed and some were not as good quality so we immediately set about sourcing an alternative. They say that from every adversity comes an equal or greater benefit and in this case the swivels we located came from Japan - arguably the best swivel manufacturers in the world. They matched the size of the originals exactly, improved the breaking strain and reliability, and made them in a lovely dull grey tint. This was an improvement that entailed only a marginal increase in price - 10 per cent over 10 years! The swivels have round eyes because they are stronger than diamond eyes, if this were not the case then hooks would be made with diamond eyes! They fit just about everything that we make including - the Inline Leads, Lead Clips, Running Rigs, Shok Beads and Rubbers, what more can we say!
Funnel Web System, Funnelweb's main function is to create a PVA bag of any size in the shortest time possible - bags can be made in less than 30 seconds, leaving any other system for dust. Funnel Web minimises wasted PVA making it the most cost-effective PVA bag system ever made. If you are not using it in your carp fishing, you're missing out! Once you have used all your PVA you should not throw away your system. Simply buy a Funnel Web refill pack and thread on another 5m or 10m. The refills are available in Hexmesh or Micromesh when youre using tiny baits in 5m or 20m lengths. Each refill is colour coded to match the correct PVA system.
Mini Skyliner Spod, Following the unrivalled success of our original Skyliner it was inevitable that we would release a smaller brother to go with it. A more robust, buoyant and effective product you would be hard pushed to find. This is a spod that can introduce any newcomer to spodding, as it does not require specialist spodding equipment to cast it. Full of bait it weighs no more than 3oz, which means normal carp rods of 2.5lb TC will be able to cast this spod comfortably, to ranges of up to 80 yards. Unlike other mini spods, which fly badly and don't release bait very well, this is perfectly aerodynamic and with all the characteristics of the original Skyliner it will release bait with consummate ease. Specialist and match anglers have already been putting these through their paces with fantastic results.
Hybrid Feeder, The unique design features a contoured, raised lip that keeps the bait parcel enclosed, offering the benefits of both a method and pellet feeder style with great casting properties.Holes in the base and slits in the walls of the feeder allow water to break down the contents straight away after casting, quickly releasing attractants into the water column, and the hook bait will always be presented to a fish that tries to feed on the feeder’s contents. This results in more bites, sooner after casting out.The system is compatible with Guru’s X-Safe system – the only safe elasticated feeder system on the market – and the weight options (24-45g) and three sizes (mini, small and large) cover short, medium and long-range situations.
