The Black & Whites are a bobbin that we believe offers the ultimate in performance and functionality, alongside classic style and versatility. They perform as well as they look, and they look great!
There are four sizes in the range, and each comes with two interchangeable weights, so depending on the situation you are faced with, and what you want your indicators to achieve, you can customise the weight and tension applied to your line. Also supplied are two different length chains - the standard 6 inch and a longer 9 inch version - for you to choose between, depending on personal preference.
The Hockey sticks that come with the Black & Whites are fully compatible with the Stow range of indicators, so once you have attached the magnetic bayonet-style hockey sticks supplied with your Black & Whites, you can change between styles instantly, without having to unscrew your alarms.
The Black & Whites have a mechanism that runs through the body of the bobbin, allowing you to adjust the grip-strength of the line clip with a simple twist, again allowing for unrivalled customisation of the hanger. The Black & Whites are a two-sided design, one a solid white or black plastic, and the other a clear plastic that houses the super-bright new Mini Isotopes.
We believe there is a bobbin in the range for every fishing situation you will find yourself in, and whether you choose the black or white version, you can do it in fine style with the glorious Black & Whites sat proudly on your set-up.
Korda operations director Damian Clarke explained:
“The original idea behind having clear and white came from an angler who was fishing on Becontree Lake, in Dagenham, he was making monkey climbers in that style and we thought they would make a great bobbin design.
“The Stow indicators have been incredibly popular, but there are plenty of anglers out there who prefer a bobbin that hangs on the line, so the Black & Whites are the perfect choice for them. They have an integral, adjustable line clip, and have a very classic look which is different to other bobbins already on the market."
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.
Lanyard, When you’re perched up a tree or leaning over the edge of the bank, the last thing you want to have to worry about is that your sunglasses could fall off, and this lanyard solves that problem. Should they fall off whilst being worn it will not only prevent you from losing them in certain situations, but will also protect them from the damage they could have sustained should they have hit the ground – lenses and stones definitely don’t go together well! The length of the lanyard can be adjusted to fit any size of head, and also gives the freedom to allow you to leave the sunglasses dangling around your neck when not in use. It will fit onto the frames of any model in our 4th Dimension range.
Big Grippa, These leads are perfect for anywhere that you need more grip, like rivers, on the sides of bars, marginal slopes or boating out at extreme range. We have recorded that you can get the same grip with a 1oz Grippa as you can with a 2oz Swivel Pear lead. So, with that in mind, you can get away with a smaller lead to do the same job, which is an advantage when fishing for barbel and chub on the rivers. Also, a lighter lead makes a smaller splash so we like using them for casting to gently sloping island margins where a round lead can roll down. The Grippas have become massively popular on the continent where carping in wide fast flowing rivers is the norm and where you have to boat out baits massive distances.
Bait Box, The boxes are available in three sizes – 3.3 pints, 2.2 pints and one pint (which is an exact 1-pint measure, making it ideal for anglers who have to keep to strict bait limits). The two larger tubs have perforated lids and the smaller version is available with solid and perforated lids. The larger boxes will fit traditional bait waiters, and two of the smaller boxes will fit snugly inside the bigger boxes. “You can’t reinvent a bait box,” Adam Rooney explains, “However, we all use bait boxes and as the Guru band grows, a simple range of boxes meeting our team’s requirements makes a nice edition to the range. The boxes all have a nice strong overmoulded lid with a window to help the anglers locate what is in each box.
