We can say without the slightest hint of hype that the new Specialist Gripper Feeders are the best river feeders available. Literally hundreds of hours of research, design and testing has gone into these beautiful feeders, and the list of attributes bears this out. Let's have a closer look at the features. Perhaps the cleverest is the anti-roll design, which means that the feeder stays the right way up in the very fastest of flows, ensuring perfect presentation. This design, coupled with the surprisingly low-profile of the feeders, increased surface area of the lead and protruding feet means that it'll grip extra well. You'll notice that the feeders are supplied with two rigid stems, one that allows them to be used as an inline system, and the other that allows it to be used as a conventional swivel-type feeder, either running, or semi-fixed on a lead clip. The robust plastic frame is overmoulded onto the lead, which makes it much more hardwearing than conventional feeders. The frame itself is tinted with a subtle camo colour, which blends perfectly with a whole host of lakebed conditions. The rigid stems and weight-forward shape make for a feeder that flies true and long, making casting to tight spots much easier. The Specialist Gripper Feeder is available in two sizes, large and medium, and in 1oz, 2oz, 3oz and 4oz versions.
Flatliner Pear Inline, The condensed shape of this lead, coupled with the two flat sides makes it the perfect lead for bolt rigs at short to medium range. By its very nature the flat pear lead lends itself to being fished on marginal slopes, the sides or back or gravel bars and in rivers. But, in fact it is one of the most effective shapes at short to medium range because it holds so well on the lake bed and offers fantastic impact hooking potential. We have also seen that this type of lead is by far the most like a stone on the lake bed and during the Underwater filming this lead blended in better than any other. There's a popular misconception that flat leads sit on silt. This does not happen, any lead finds the easiest path through the water so instead of fluttering down to the lake bed, a nose-heavy flat lead like this will plummet down side on and nose first, making it less effective in the silt than say a Swivel Pear lead. Having said that, it is devastating on gravel and is Danny's first choice in these close-range, hard-bottomed situations. Danny told us that, "When Underwater part 3 I tried a Flatliner Pear on the steep gravel slope to see if it really did hook the carp quicker than a swivel lead of the same shape. To my amazement it really did! I had been testing the lead clips for so long I had ignored the inline lead - not any more!" • Please Note: Due to varying stock throughout our stockists, lead colours may vary.

Hybrid Lead Clip QC, Since its release, the Hybrid Lead Clip has established itself as the best clip on the market. We have now developed this hugely popular product to feature a quick change element, allowing you to change your rigs quickly and easily. It has one very simple purpose, and that's to help you ditch the lead if the fish you hook becomes snagged. The streamlined, one-piece design means there are no fiddly locking pegs or hinges to worry about - just connect the leader to one end and the rig to the other! The uprated arm allows leads up to 5oz to be cast safely even at extreme range and the clip is available in Weed/Silt.
Chod Swivel, These size-eleven ring swivels have been subtly re-engineered to allow for putty to be securely moulded around the barrel. We'd noticed that most anglers used our size-11 ring swivels when making chod rigs, or the hook section of a hinged stiff rig. The team set about designing a swivel that would provide more purchase for the putty counterweight. These little beauties are the result...
Arma-Kord, Arma-Kord is an incredibly abrasion resistant braided line, which is also supple and relatively thin for its breaking strain. It has been designed as a high-performance snag or shock leader for extreme snag fishing or long-range work. In tests this braid proved at least 50% more abrasion resistant than the nearest competitor. Its thinner diameter and low-viz brown colour also make it far less detectable underwater.
