Traditionally, there was no particular science to hook bait placement within the method ball and your bait could even become trapped inside or under the feeder frame. Guru has, quite literally, turned this upside down. Commercial master Steve Ringer engineered a groundbreaking hook bait platform, which sits on the opposite side of the feeder to the main weight loading, ensuring that the hook bait sits on top of the feeder cast after cast. The platform itself is positioned on X-shaped, vented arms that are configured to minimize tangles and allow maximum grip, ensuring that your groundbait can be loaded easily onto the feeder. One cast with a Guru Method Feeder and you'll understand why it's shaped like it is. The team made long, stable casting a real priority and the weight-forward design really delivers this. These feeders cut across testing crosswinds, like a dart, allowing you to consistently hit the spot, effortlessly building your swim. The colour of the frame is anything but an afterthought. Steve drew upon what he knows of the underwater environment to choose a colour that melts inconspicuously into most lake bed types. The unique X-Safe elastic system acts as a buffer during the fight, helping to reduce hook pulls at the net. Not only that, but thanks to the innovative design, it's 100 per cent safe for the fish. Should you lose a fish and leave it attached to the feeder, the elastic will simply pull free, allowing the fish to ditch the feeder. The Method feeders are available in four sizes and all sizes of feeder are completely interchangeable and spare elastics and tubes are available separately.
Quick Change Swivel, This little family of products will find favour with a host of anglers. They allow the hook link to be changed in an instant, which is a huge help when time is of the essence! They're available in and in two sizes, size-11 and size-8, and in standard and ring-swivel variants, which allows you to use them with lead clips, or on helicopter systems.
Micro Rig Swivel, From bait attachment, to combi-rig construction, the Micro Rig Swivel has a host of rig applications. It's perhaps most widely used sliding on the shank of a hook, forming the blow-back element of many rigs. Crucially, it has the same non-reflective coating that our other rig components are blessed with, eliminating any glint that might otherwise spook feeding fish.
Square Pear Swivel, Without any doubt, when fishing on a hard gravel bottom inline leads hook the carp quicker than swivel type leads. The reason for this is that the fish always pick up the lead from the heavy end first, because the hook link is always attached to the heavy end of the lead. In the case of Korda inlines the swivel is actually semi-fixed inside the lead, exaggerating the 'instant bolt' effect. What Dan set about doing after watching the fish hooking themselves on Part 4, was to design the most condensed shape of lead possible. So, a fish would have to move the minimum distance before it felt the full weight of the lead. Now, the most condensed shape of all is a ball, but a ball could possibly roll around before the full weight is felt and it isn't tapered towards the back of the lead enough to stop the hook link tangling around it. So, Dan chose to put four flat sides onto the ball and gently taper the back to avoid tangles. An appropriate name that summed up the lead, was of course the Square Pear. As an inline there is no lead out there that the fish will feel the full weight of more instantly. Even as a swivel lead, the fish will still feel more of the weight sooner because it's so short and one end of the lead is almost the same as the other. Only the movement of the swivel will make a difference. So in short, you have the most condensed inline lead and swivel lead there can be, with flat sides that works in a fishing situation.
Silicone Sleeves, In 2003 we released the increasingly popular Run Rig kits, after this we received a massive demand for the silicone sleeves to be sold separately. We found that by using a small piece to cover the swivel on the lead it kept everything neat and tidy but more importantly offered much better camouflage. They are also the perfect size to fit over our Kwik-links and Stik-Klip. We started off manufacturing them in weedy green but have now extended the range by adding a silty brown version. No other company produces such a wide range of colours because no other company has seen how much difference it can make. We shall continue to strive for better ways of fooling the most wary of carp. To fit, thread piece of line through eye of swivel or Kwik-link and then through sleeve, wet metal item with saliva and pull on sleeve. Sleeves may need to be cut down for some applications.
