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.
PVA Ready Rig, Solid bags have remained one Ali Hamidi's favourite methods over the last two decades of carp fishing. They have helped him bank numerous big car from a variety of venues in tricky conditions. whether you're fishing over clean bottoms or into heavy weed, you can be rest assured you're fishing tangle free and very effectively. Three rigs in each pack, the rig is purpose designed for use within a solid bag. At 4.5 inches long, the simple rig utilises a short length of silicon tubing to maximise the hooking potential. the free extender stops provided, allow this rig to be used with all sizes of bottom baits and wafters, Ali recommends keeping a short hair for maximum hooking potential.
Bait Strainer, This is a bait preparation, storage and drainage aid that fit neatly inside Guru Bait Boxes. These are perfect for use with any bait that involves soaking or covering with water, as you can quickly and easily remove the bait from water by lifting the strainer out of the tub when required. The strainer is slightly raised so when placed on the ground water will drain from the bait. Perfect for soaking pellets, preparing expanders, or holding any baits that need to be stored in water and require drainage at the end of a session. These are also ideal for draining the worm juice from chopped worms when adding them to groundbait, so not to alter the consistency of the mix. Available in one pint and 3.3pt versions.
Kable Leadcore, Kable is Korda's first leadcore. Rather than simply producing a 'me-too' product, the product development team decided to try a unique, banded camo pattern in two colours, Weed/Silt and Gravel Brown. The carefully selected, alternating bands of subtle colour have the effect of breaking up the outline of your leader, making it practically melt into the lake bed. Kable has a breaking strain of 50lb and is available on 7m and 25m spools. It splices extremely well, producing strong loops for easy connection to the rest of your terminal tackle and main line. If you're looking for the perfect leadcore then you've just found it...

The leads are finished with a robust camouflaged paint that blends in superbly well over a range of lake beds and are available in sizes from 1.5oz up to 4oz • Please Note: Due to varying stock throughout our stockists, lead colours may vary.
