Offering an integrated bait storage and protection system with four sizes of Push Punch, it’s the perfect solution to the problem of keeping bread and meat baits fresh along with an effective way of punching out hook baits.
Its uses range from commercial carping with punched boilie and meat hook baits or popped-up bread disks, to trotting or feeder fishing rivers with punched flake and meat offerings.
Guru brand manager Adam Rooney explains how the Guru Punch Box came about: “With the ever-increasing use of punched baits on the match scene, especially punched bread, the Guru team felt there was a gap in the market for a good quality bait punch that would be suitable for a wide range of baits.”
“To go alongside this we wanted to design a storage system to house the punches and the bait together. The storage system needed to make the bait easy assessable and, most importantly, keep the bait in perfect condition. After months of research an old product from 15-plus years ago sparked an idea.”
“Back in the day on canals the Image Bread Box was an essential piece of kit - it was a simple tray with a sliding lid, allowing you to store the bread, then slide the lid across, punch a piece out then simply slide it back, keeping your bread dry and in good condition.”
“With this in mind, the Guru team played around with a few ideas to come up with the perfect punched bait system. Integrating the sliding lid design to the new box, also included are four Push Punches in 6, 8, 10 and 12mm sizes, which clip neatly into the rear of the box.”
The lid is also tinted to protect baits like meat and bread from drying out in the sun, and rubber feet on the base prevent the punch box slipping on the side tray. The robust design is slim enough to fit easily inside carryalls or seat boxes without taking up much room.
The Push Punches have also been custom designed for the Punch Box with a plunger system to release bait with minimal effort – it can easily cut out and dispense multiple disks of bread or meat without any damage to the bait, for example.
The razor sharp cutting edge makes fast work of even harder baits such as boilies or pepperami and the stainless steel won’t rust or warp under pressure.
Inline X-Safe Lead, Roll-proof inline leads that can be fished with a standard rubber insert, or with the clever Guru X-Safe elasticated system. The inlines are perfect for use with a host of tactics, but take conventional bomb and pellet fishing to the next level. They offer better hooking potential than swivel leads, and especially when teamed up with the X-Safe stems, fly extremely straight and true. There are four leads in the range, 0.75oz, 1.1oz, 1.5oz and 2oz and they are supplied two per pack.
Mini Pellet Feeder, Based on the same cutting-edge technology that has made the range of Hybrid feeders a huge hit this summer, the new 24g model boasts a super compact design with the weight built into the body of the feeder, allowing excellent casting and hooking properties. Our current range of pellet feeders have served us well, explains Adam Rooney. But there has always been a gap in the range for a mini version however, we found it hard to create a smaller version with sufficient weight. With the birth of the recent Hybrid feeder, which is made using a new type of material where the weight is in the body of the feeder, rather than being a separate weight, it made it possible to produce a feeder with the correct weight to make it efficient and useable in most fishing situations. Using the new material benefits the new Mini Pellet Feeder in many ways. The durable camo paint finish blends into any lake bed and the flared design allows for easy loading and quick release of bait and scent into the water. Slots in the top of the feeder and holes in the base, as seen on the Hybrid range, allow the water to reach the pellets to start breaking down quickly after casting. The unbreakable design has been perfected over many months of testing by Adam Rooney, Pemb Wrighting, Steve Ringer and the Guru team and the feeders are X-Safe compatible, meaning they can be used with Guru's safe elasticated stem system. To compliment the new pellet feeder and recently-launched Hybrid range, the X-Safe Speed Stem range has also seen some new additions in the form of short and long stems with options for heavy and light elastics, allowing greater flexibility. The stems will fit all of Guru's X-Safe compatible feeders. Look out for more on the new pellet feeder on the Guru social media channels and this website over the coming weeks both the Mini Pellet Feeder and range of X-Safe Stems be in tackle shops from late September with an RRP of 2.49.
Mini Rigsafe, We've overhauled our rig-storage solutions recently, and this new Rig-Safe is the result. Its robust and compact, yet it will hold up to 60 pre-tied rigs! As youd expect, weve tweaked the design to include several neat upgrades compared to the traditional rig box. The magnetic locking system ensures that the box cant come open in transit, and is easy to open, even in the wet and cold of a UK winter! The rigs are secured by hooking over a ridged aluminium bar that prevents tangles, and the hook end of the box is slightly recessed to protect those hook points. The RigSafe comes with 30 standard single pins and 15 double pins, which have been designed to secure hook links that havent been finished with a loop or swivel, allowing you to leave final adjustments to rig length until youre in the swim. The case is finshed in a carpy soft-touch rubber too!
