There are two COG lead patterns currently available, the Flat Distance and Flat Pear. The Flat Pear is more conventional and its condensed shape makes for the best hooking potential it's unsurpassed for margin or boat work. The Flat Distance lead was designed by Danny Fairbrass for the COG system. It takes its shape from the popular Distance Casting lead, but has a slightly flattened profile, giving better hooking capabilities and ensuring that the COG system is properly presented.
Flatliner Pear Inline, 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!"
Super LWG, The original LWG established itself as an astonishingly popular pattern. We have now introduced a premium version of this – the Super LWG! Featuring a round bend and wide gape with an inturned point, the Super LWG is PTFE coated to ensure the hook remains strong, durable and discrete in appearance. A single hook has proved to last throughout intense bagging sessions. The ‘Wasabi’ point stays razor sharp to give you maximum hooking capability at all times. Available in both eyed and spade patterns, the hooks are perfect for presenting all kinds of baits, from maggots, casters and worms, to meat, corn and pellets. The eyed versions are superb for hair rigging a band when using hard pellets, or for holding a Speed Stop to present hair-rigged baits.
ZIG MAGNET, This little gadget has been designed to make casting even quite long zigs child's play. By simply popping your hook onto the magnetic plate, it will be hold there securely until you let fly, meaning that the hook cannot become tangled and the line can be kept off the floor. Simple, but you'll wonder how you lived without one!
Large Rig Safe, This is the ultimate rig storage system for anyone looking for more capacity than the existing Mini Rig-Safe offers, or needs somewhere to store pre-tied rigs of 12 inches or longer. It will hold up to 90 rigs, thanks to one side of it featuring double-ended storage, and the clever magnetic locking system means that it will never come open accidentally during transit, but is very easy to open when you want to, even with cold hands! The Large Rig-Safe features a specially machined, ridged aluminium bar to retain the hooks and keep them razor sharp until you’re ready to use them, and it has been shaped so that if you’re using a curved shrink tube kicker it retains its shape if you store them point upwards. It comes supplied with 30 standard pins to hold swivels or loops in place on the high density foam inner, and prevent tangles, or if you prefer to tie your rigs to the right length when you arrive at the water, then you can make use of the 20 double pins which will keep those in place, rather than in a knotted mess! It is made from high impact plastic, meaning that it is every strong, and is finished in soft-touch rubber, which not only feels nice in your hands but allows a good grip on it even when wet. The outside is marked up to 12 inches or 30 cm, so you can tie your rigs to exactly the length that you require.
