We've been working on a solution to a problem that anglers been faced with for some time, how to safely and consistently discharge the lead when fishing with a helicopter setup. In order to be a true game-changing product, the Heli-Safe had to fulfill some important criteria... One such criterion was the ability to fish chod rigs at range. The heavy leads needed to fish at long range often become a problem once a fish is hooked. The combination of a very short hook link and large lead would often result in dropped fish. Likewise, venues that had been choked by weed often dictated that dropping the lead was paramount, something that just isn't consistently possible with conventional systems. The demand from anglers to produce a drop-off lead system for use in these situations pushed us to develop the product you see before you. The Heli-Safe System enables you to drop the lead when the situation calls for it. When used in conjunction with our unique Helicopter Safety System and unique No-Trace Beads, you can fish a rotary-rig setup in situations that would have previously led to the loss of hooked fish. The system works by employing a pressure-release function, not seen in the angling world until now. The latched lead clip will open once a hooked fish pulls against the angler, allowing the lead to drop free. By threading a Barrel Bead onto the leader above the Heli Safe, you will prevent the lead from discharging, should you pick up weed or other detritus on the retrieve. Once engaged in battle though, the bead will simply pull down and allow the lead to discharge. The unique design enables the angler to choose when to drop the lead, and when to retain it. In situations where it's not necessary to discharge the lead, a small plastic collar (which is supplied in the kit) can be fitted to fix the lead in place.
15" QM1 Bayonet Rig, The all-conquering QM1 hooks are now available on ready-tied rigs. These 15-inch versions are supplied on EVA spools, so they can be dropped straight into the Guru Rig Box. Adam Rooney explained how and why they were developed, "We get inundated with calls and messages asking if we would ever do our famous QM1 hook ready-tied. So here they are, tied to the same high standard as our existing range. I'm confident to say I would be happy to use them myself in all match conditions. The EVA spools, which have been colour-coded and printed so you can simply store them directly in your Guru Rig Box for maximum protection. The QM1 design and packaging take ready rigs to a whole new level!"
Lead Clip Action Pack, A pack that has all the components to help you construct safe lead clip systems. If you were attached to a really big carp, would you sacrifice the lead to guarantee you landed the carp? We would, and it's a small price to pay. The basic rule of the lead clip system is the lead must eject before the swivel pulls out. If the swivel comes out first the lead will never eject. Instead, the line will pull back and forth through the system like a running rig leaving the lead snagged and the fish too! In our opinion, the lead clip system is the best way to ensure a fish is not left with a lead because the line does not have to pull through anything for the lead to discharge. Use the system correctly and the lead will eject when you want it to. One thing that's for certain is that when the lead comes off the carp rises to the surface, allowing you to lead it over any underwater obstacles rather than having to drag it through them. This is the most versatile system when it comes to presenting a bait on any lake bed and as such should be chosen as your number one system. Simply follow the steps to make it safe and effective.
Leadcore Leaders, To use leadcore safely, leaders need to be constructed to exacting standards. That's why we've taken the doubt out and produced ready-tied versions that are every bit as good, and as safe, as the ones that team Korda tie themselves. What's more, being as they're constructed from the toughest of all leader materials, they're perfect for most things that UK carp fishing will throw at you. We will be releasing lead clip and Ring Swivel leaders in the middle of November. The Ring Swivel leaders have been designed for use with inline leads and the lead clip versions feature our new lead clips, which can be used semi-fixed or running and with lead clips or Kwik Links. You get three leaders per pack. Both versions are 1m long and are tied from our 50lb Kable camouflaged leadcore, which has won many fans this year already. In a world that imposes huge pressures on our time, any time saving products are very welcome, and these leaders are just that. You can literally use them straight out of the packet, with total confidence.
