The Wide Gape X is a beefed-up version of the Wide Gape, designed for use in the most extreme fishing situations on the Planet. It's been road-tested on infamously snaggy waters, like Rainbow Lake, and has even been used to land monster species like Arapaima and Mekong Catfish. Just like it's little brother, the Wide Gape X is suited to both pop-up and bottom-bait presentations. The heavily forged, square bend, beaked point and in-turned eye combine to make sure that you land that elusive monster, whether you're fishing a hard syndicate in the UK, or dodging tree stumps on some Continental super-water.
Intelligent Backlead, This range of backleads can be attached using one hand, which is vital for trouble-free backleading. They are coated in the same way as our leads, and will pop off the line if snaged or weeded, hence the 'Intelligent' part of the name! They are available in 0.25oz, 0.5oz, 1oz and 1.5oz versions and come in packs of three.
QC Ring Swivel - Round, These clever swivels have been designed to make chod-rig fishing even easier. They feature a rounded crook rather than a conventional eye, into which you can clip a looped chod. To create the loop, you can either tie an overhand loop or crimp a loop into the end. These loops can then be 'clicked' into the loop and won't come out unless you want to change a rig. The swivels are PTFE coated, which prevents light glinting off, potentially spooking feeding carp.
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. • Please Note: Due to varying stock throughout our stockists, lead colours may vary.

KD Rig, These pre-tied KD rigs are a worthy addition to our ready-tied rig range, such is the popularity and effectiveness of this presentation. Korda was at the very heart of the KD-rig revolution a few years back, and the likes of Tom Dove and Ali Hamidi still use it, as well as its variant, the Muzza. So, with this in mind, we wanted to make sure that our ready-tied version was what we considered to be the ultimate KD on the market. After Tom tied and approved what he considered to be the perfect KD rig, we had it copied by our rig tiers. You'll notice that each ready-tied rig has been meticulously produced, to Tom's exacting specifications. The result is a range of rigs that Tom himself would happily cast out and use with confidence! The range, which numbers six rigs, is tied with proven Korda components, which include ultra-sharp Kurv Shanks and N-Trap coated braid. The range includes rigs with both barbed and barbless hooks, and in sizes that cover almost all eventualities. The KD range is available in hook sizes six, eight and ten and each rig comes with free Extenda stops and standard hair stops.
