The condensed shape of this lead, coupled with the two flat sides makes it the perfect lead for bolt rigs at short to medium range. By its very nature the flat pear lead lends itself to being fished on marginal slopes, the sides or back or gravel bars and in rivers. But, in fact it is one of the most effective shapes at short to medium range because it holds so well on the lake bed and offers fantastic impact hooking potential. We have also seen that this type of lead is by far the most like a stone on the lake bed and during the Underwater filming this lead blended in better than any other. There's a popular misconception that flat leads sit on silt. This does not happen, any lead finds the easiest path through the water so instead of fluttering down to the lake bed, a nose-heavy flat lead like this will plummet down side on and nose first, making it less effective in the silt than say a Swivel Pear lead. Having said that, it is devastating on gravel and is Danny's first choice in these close-range, hard-bottomed situations. Danny told us that, "When Underwater part 3 I tried a Flatliner Pear on the steep gravel slope to see if it really did hook the carp quicker than a swivel lead of the same shape. To my amazement it really did! I had been testing the lead clips for so long I had ignored the inline lead - not any more!"

Aventus 13ft Distance Feeder, The 13ft Distance Feeder in the Aventus range is designed to combine many assets - distance, accuracy, durability and playing action. Made to Tackle Guru specifications by Daiwa in the renowned UK facilities using the highest quality Japanese carbon and most up-to-date rod technology. Three piece, folding down neatly for use in a Fusion Rod Holdall. Supplied with three carbon distance quiver tips with large guides to allow easy pass-through of shock leader knots - 1.5oz, 2oz and 3oz. The rod has a casting weight of 150g, and is capable of achieving distances of 100m plus with the right gear and technique used. In both our distance rods, 12ft and 13ft, we wanted to produce a tool that would help anglers cast further, accurately, with ease. However, the rods still needed to have a playing action to allow them to target all kinds of fish, from roach and skimmers in Ireland and on naturals, to big carp on vast UK commercials at distance on Method and Hybrid Feeders.Like the whole of the Aventus range, this rod has complete all-round capabilities. At home fishing for carp on large commercials in the summer months when big fish and big weights are on the cards at distance, while equally comfortable for catching skimmers and f1s in the winter or silvers on natural venues.The 13ft rod in particular has been put through paces on big tidal rivers throughout the UK and Europe, withstanding everything we could possibly throw at it!A crisp, progressive action means the rod has lots of power when needed, especially in the bottom end for distance, while withholding a fish playing action that prevents hook pulls when fishing lighter lines and finer tackle.The rod features oversized top-spec Fuji Alconite K-Guides, bullet proof, super durable, and designed to prevent frap-ups and tangles. All guides are strategically positioned to give the rod the perfect compression, casting and playing action. The guides and size of guides are unique to the rod - each rod in the Aventus range has different sizes guides placed at different points to help the rod perform to 100 per cent of its capability. An A-Grade Cork handle is ultra comfortable and hardwearing, featuring the Armlock design to give you ultimate fish-playing control. Finished off with a Fuji DPS real seat. The butt of the rod is completed with a moulded bespoke Guru EVA hand grip, with finger moulds to help hand positioning on the cast, enabling maximum compression, distance and accuracy to be achieved with ease!A key feature is the length of the handles - longer than normal to again help casing distance and accuracy. More leverage and power can be gained from the longer handle, helping anglers be more accurate and cast further.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.
