The Wide Gape hook has become a true design classic, and has accounted for more big carp than any other pattern. It was based on the cult Maruta Kinryu pattern that found favour with the likes of Terry Hearn in the 1990s. The five-degree in-turned eye, short shank, heavily forged bend and beaked point combine to give anglers a hooked-to-landed ratio far in excess of anything else that's achievable. It can be used for pop-up and bottom-bait presentations and is the hook to opt for when fishing for the very biggest and trickiest carp around.
4" MWG Speed Stop, These ready-tied method rigs feature the reliable MWG hook and innovative Speed Stop hair attachment. When used with the Guru Speed Stop Needle, the Speed Stop system can be used to bait with even quite soft baits like luncheon meat, worms and sweetcorn. They can equally be used with hard baits like boilies.
X-Safe Speed Stems, Developed by top match anglers Steve Ringer, Adam Rooney and Pemb Wrighting, a feeder or lead equipped with the X-Safe Speed Stems allows for ultra-quick re-casts - all you need to do is unclip the whole feeder or lead from the main line and attach a new ready-to-go rig. Using this system, the Guru team have won countless matches this year with the Speed Stems allowing anglers to have multiple feeders or leads set up and ready to recast within seconds of a fish or bringing a rig in, saving valuable minutes over the course of a match or pleasure session when speed is the key. Also incorporated into the stems is a Speed Bead, which allows hook lengths to be changed in seconds via a small quick-change swivel which pulls back into the bead to secure it to the rig. The stems fit Guru's existing method, pellet and Hybrid feeders and the inline lead range, easily slotting into the existing holes to make an instant quick change, elasticated feeder or lead set-up. Just tie a small loop onto the main line, secure it to the stem via the streamlined crook and small tail rubber, and it's ready to go. The X-Safe is the only safe elasticated system on the market, with the whole elasticated section easily pulling through the stem so any fish lost due to a main line breakage or picking up a cracked-off rig will be able to easily lose the feeder or lead. Top fisheries such as White Acres have recognised this safety aspect and now insist that anglers use the X-Safe system. The stems are available in two lengths for short and medium to long-range fishing and two elastic strengths black and white for targeting smaller or larger fish. For example, the black (heavy) elastic is great for larger carp and big bream whilst the lighter white version is perfect for F1s, bream, skimmers and smaller carp.
Apex Braided Main Line, Apex is a tough, neutral-bouyancy main line braid. It's been developed for the toughest waters in the world, and this is reflected in its high breaking strain. If colossal carp in snag-infested waters are your target, this is the braid to turn to. A Dyneema element gives Apex its incredible toughness and abrasion resistance. Line markers every 150m help you to fill your spools correctly.
Supernatural Braid, This is a finely woven braid that's mega supple and ultra strong. Due to its suppleness, Supernatural will gently rest over the contours of the lake bed laying flat and out of the carp's way. This suppleness also makes it just about as good a solid-bag hook link as you can get. It's championed by the likes of Ian Poole, which shows you just how good it is. If the carp in your water have been hammered on the popular coated braids, give this a try because it presents something that is completely different to them. Supernatural is available in Weedy Green and Gravel Brown, which makes it blend in with many different lake bed types.
