“I’m entering my 14th year at Korda. It’s safe to say that I’ve seen wonderful products come along during that period but this is, without a doubt, the most exciting” - Ali Hamidi
Along with most carp anglers around the world, we believe a sharp hook to be the single most important part of your tackle! The UNDERWATER filming and observations on various different locations around the globe has proven that an ultra-sharp hook gives you a greater chance of hooking big, wary fish.
Lots of anglers have been sharpening hooks for many years, historically they did it because hooks just weren’t sharp enough out of the packet. In recent years chemically sharpened hooks led to a major improvement in hook sharpness, but even those could be improved by hand sharpening into ultra-fine points. This tricky, time consuming craft can give an angler a big advantage and help turn more pickups into actual hooked fish. Anglers like Danny Fairbrass, Darrell Peck and Elliott Gray have had to hand sharpen their hooks to get the very most from their fishing, as production constraints meant that an extremely fine point hasn’t been possible…. Until now.
Korda Developments has spent years painstakingly developing and pushing boundaries in hook technology, the result being the KAMAKURA hook point - the sharpest possible hook, sharpened post production to the highest tolerance.
“As an angler, product developer and Managing Director of Korda I can’t tell you how proud I am of this product. It will bring a genuine benefit to all anglers that use them.” - Damian Clarke
The Kamakura hooks are sharpened post production to an extremely high tolerance. When you open the packet you will notice two standout things. The first is the consistency of the product, every single hook being sold has the same super sharpness. With consistency being the key we take pride in getting every point exactly the same. The second is a wax coating on the sharpened part of the point, this unique way of covering the tip ensures they stay in the best possible condition until they are ready to be used. Simply push the wax coating off before casting out and you’ll be fishing with the sharpest hook you can possibly imagine.
“I believe this process/product not only to be a step forward in carp fishing hooks but a step forward in hook technology in general!” - Tom Dove
Kickers, We've designed Kickers to help you make rigs that flip, turn and catch hold much more easily. To create a bottom-bait presentation that will guarantee optimum hooking, simply slide a rubber Kicker over the eye of your hook and you're good to go! Ali Hamidi and Tom Dove wanted to create something totally different with these Kickers, and decided to make them available in bright yellow, pink, red and white, as well as the normal green and brown. Their thinking was that adding more colour to the orbit of the hook bait would help grab the carp's attention even faster! If you're somewhat more old fashioned, like Danny, then you can still choose your Kickers to blend with the lake bed. Available in small, medium and large sizes to fit hooks from 10 to 4.
Aventus 11ft Float Rod, A crisp through-action rod that can handle everything you can throw at it! Made to the specifications of the Tackle Guru team by Daiwa in the renowned UK facility!From fishing a light, traditional waggles for silvers, to casting a 15g Pellet Waggler on a vast venue for big carp! The Aventus Range is designed to do EVERYTHING!Two piece, folding in half to fit in a Fusion Rod Holdall ready-made perfectly, with a casting weight upto 15g and line rating upto 12lb!The 11ft waggler is incredibly light and balanced, with upmost power kicking in when needed for playing and landing big fish. A perfect length rod for most commercial fishing, and ideal for pellet waggler work.The lightness come from using High Volume Carbon Fibre, the very best Japanese materials, combined with the most modern rod-building processes.Each float rod features single leg top-spec Fuji guides, with extra durable Alconite rings. These are positioned on the rod strategically to allow easy flow of the line through the rings when casting, without worry of tangles or line sticking to the black in damp conditions. Another aspect adding to the lightness is the cutaway Fuji TVS real set. When fishing a float, you're often holding the rod for long periods, and having a real seat that is comfortable is vital. this features the blank of the rod running down through it, so you have ultimate feel and control of the rod.Like the feeder rods, the personalised touches are present; a moulded EVA bespoke Guru butt grip, and the A-grade Armlock shape cork handle for ultimate fish-playing control.The fast action of the float rods enable rapid line pick-up, helping to hit bites even when fishing a long way out.A unique and key asset to the Aventus project is Zero 90 carbon technology. This process involves double layering carbon fibres in different ways from zero to 90 degrees. When cured, this gives rods combined longitudinal strength, recovery and crispness. The tubular shape of any fishing rod is deformed when compressed. Zero 90 technology enables us to control this deformation, preventing energy and accuracy loss, retaining the cylindrical structure to give more casting power and precision.
Krimps, This clever system will allow us all to reach brand-new heights of neatness in rig creation. The Krimps and Krimp tool have been designed to allow easy rig construction with stiff materials (at the moment we only recommend Hybrid Stiff, Mouth Trap and Boom). In particular, we're really excited about the potential to create extremely neat loops for chod rigs and Boom sections. Not only this, but using Krimps will allow you to create chod rigs that are exactly the same length each and every time. There are two sizes of Krimp available, which have been designed to suit different materials. The smaller one will suit stiff bristle materials like Mouth Trap and stiff coated braids, like our Hybrid Stiff, and the larger one is perfect for really thick materials (like 30lb plus mono or the 35lb Boom). The product development team went to extreme lengths to make sure that the Krimps and Krimp tools were exactly right, having to overcome various problems along the way. The complexity of getting the tool and Krimps just right has meant that this has been a long development, but we're sure that it's been well worth the wait.
