You asked us for these, so we added them to the range. These swivels have one very large round eye and one normal size one and, as with all our swivels, they come from the best Japanese manufacturers and have our trademark 'anti glint' dull-grey finish. They have three major uses. Firstly, they make very smooth running rigs when used as a replacement to the swivels found on the top of our leads. They were originally designed as part of the running rig kits. But, after too many enquiries to mention, we had to add them to the range. The second obvious use is for helicopter rigs. The large eye will rotate better if a large bead is used, whereas a smaller swivel would bump around the larger beads circumference. In other words, the large eye will slide effortlessly around it. They can also be used at the top of a link for the marker float - the large eye will allow the line to pull through that bit easier than a standard swivel. No doubt you will find other uses we haven't even thought of yet.
Zig Line, When it comes to tying up your Zig rigs, the new ZIG line is the perfect choice of hook link material and is purpose designed for this type of situation. Zig Line has reduced stretch, making it a fantastic line for surface fishing as well as helping to produce strong hook holds.on zigs and on the surface. low diameter for its breaking strain at just 0.22mm for the 7lb version; 0.25mm for 9lb; and the 11lb breaking strain line is 0.28mm. The low diameter makes it harder for the fish to see it mid-water, or on the surface due to its reduced silhouette, and these camouflage properties are aided by its tinted green colour.Despite these properties it is still quite a tough line and has a very high knot strength as long as you are careful, with Palomar and knotless knots being ideal.Zig Line comes on 100m spools
Ali Hamidi's Carp Fishing Masterclass, Ali's Carp Fishing Masterclass contains over 330 pages and 32 chapters of detailed carp-catching information. This is a must-read for any carp angler, irrespective of experience. With so many methods at an anglers disposal its very difficult for many carp anglers to understand what to use and when to use it. This book helps to demonstrate exactly how to get the best from a huge number of methods in any given situation. Ali himself has extensive experience combating big fish venues but is equally at home fishing heavily stocked and pressured day-ticket venues like most of us day-to-day carp anglers. It's this experience that makes the contents of this book so valuable to the reader and will help people of all abilities to convert time on the bank into fish in the net. This book is primarily focused on outlining the most important processes of carp fishing. It dispels myths about tackle and baits and helps to describe the best way to approach your angling. The detail of knowledge that Ali passes on has to be read to be believed. The focus of the book is to help all anglers understand many skill-sets.
SkyLiner MkII Spod, A little while back, we re-vamped the design and colour to evolve the MKII. Firstly, the body of the spod has changed from black to a carpy green colour. We have also taken the front flights nearest the nose cone off, which means the spods flight will not be as badly affected in cross winds. In addition, all of our spods now come with detachable spod tails. These are stiff, which assists casting performance and also makes filling with bait much easier. The Korda Skyliner Spod MKII is a cross breed of all the best parts of modern day bait rockets. It is the result of many thousands of hours spent spodding by Team Korda. The combined design features give you a spod that: Casts further than anything in its class Loses very little feed out of the back Is less affected by cross winds, dumps the load quickly Is easily seen at any distance and retrieves so smoothly it feels like its not there. It also features a unique hole configuration makes the spod literally glide along the surface with virtually no resistance, this feature alone makes it miles better than the rest. The spod is easy to fill - we recommend a mix of particles like hemp and partiblend with some pellets and small or broken boilies as an ideal mix. The pellets will break down and form a stodgy mix, which causes a cloud effect in the water and stops any spillage out the bag of the spod in flight. Use a fairly long drop to get the rod working for you. The ideal drop would see the spod around level with the spigot of the rod if the rod were dead upright.
Pear Swivel, The classic pear lead will cast a very very long way, almost as far as the Distance Casting and it is less affected by cross winds because the shape is very condensed. This means that the Pear lead is suited to most carp fishing situations when fishing anything up to the very limit of your casting ability. The dumpy shape can be used to your advantage in silt. Try using a very light pear lead say 1oz or 2oz and actually let the lead plug into the silt, this will dramatically increase the resistance to a carp moving away with the rig, so what feels like a light lead in your hand is transformed into a heavy lead in the fishing situation. Because the lead has a large rounded end it makes 'feeling' the lead hit the bottom easier than more slender or pointed shapes. If you are new to this technique this lead will make the job easier. The pear lead is also ideal in a solid PVA bag because it can be pushed down into one of the corners. This makes the bag nose heavy and so more accurate. • Please Note: Due to varying stock throughout our stockists, lead colours may vary.
