This braid casts superbly well, thanks to its low diameter, allowing you to bait spots right at the limit of your casting ability. You'll notice that it has a rather unusual fluoro green colour, which helps to deter seagulls when baiting up with a throwing stick or floater fishing. Gulls just won't swoop down when the hi-viz line is snaking out across your swim. It is hard-wearing and has high knot strength, which is key when you consider just how much punishment that your spod setup is subject to over the course of a year. There are 300m on each spool, so you'll be able to spool up more than once, as long as you back your spool up. We recommend that you use a 30lb Arma-Kord shock leader to take the force of the cast - you can attach this using a back-to-back grinner knot.
Punch Box, Offering an integrated bait storage and protection system with four sizes of Push Punch, it’s the perfect solution to the problem of keeping bread and meat baits fresh along with an effective way of punching out hook baits.Its uses range from commercial carping with punched boilie and meat hook baits or popped-up bread disks, to trotting or feeder fishing rivers with punched flake and meat offerings.Guru brand manager Adam Rooney explains how the Guru Punch Box came about: “With the ever-increasing use of punched baits on the match scene, especially punched bread, the Guru team felt there was a gap in the market for a good quality bait punch that would be suitable for a wide range of baits.”“To go alongside this we wanted to design a storage system to house the punches and the bait together. The storage system needed to make the bait easy assessable and, most importantly, keep the bait in perfect condition. After months of research an old product from 15-plus years ago sparked an idea.” “Back in the day on canals the Image Bread Box was an essential piece of kit - it was a simple tray with a sliding lid, allowing you to store the bread, then slide the lid across, punch a piece out then simply slide it back, keeping your bread dry and in good condition.”“With this in mind, the Guru team played around with a few ideas to come up with the perfect punched bait system. Integrating the sliding lid design to the new box, also included are four Push Punches in 6, 8, 10 and 12mm sizes, which clip neatly into the rear of the box.”The lid is also tinted to protect baits like meat and bread from drying out in the sun, and rubber feet on the base prevent the punch box slipping on the side tray. The robust design is slim enough to fit easily inside carryalls or seat boxes without taking up much room.The Push Punches have also been custom designed for the Punch Box with a plunger system to release bait with minimal effort – it can easily cut out and dispense multiple disks of bread or meat without any damage to the bait, for example. The razor sharp cutting edge makes fast work of even harder baits such as boilies or pepperami and the stainless steel won’t rust or warp under pressure.
Fusion 400 Bait Pro, This baiting system is made from rugged, wipe-clean EVA and consists of two bowls, the 400 Bait Pro and the 300. The 300 fits snugly inside the 400 for storage. The 400 features a tinted waterproof lid and reversed zip, which help to keep your bait dry and in great condition, even in strong sun. The EVA is totally waterproof, which means that it can simply be wiped clean at the end of the session! It's also incredibly lightweight.
Bait Drill, The new Guru bait drill has been designed to make drilling hard baits, like pellets and tough boilies, child's play. Rather than twisting the handle of the drill, the team designed a drill that allows the bait itself to be twisted onto the bit, keeping it under total control. The flattened handle allows great grip to be achieved, even with wet, oily fingers. The super-fine 1mm needle will easily penetrate the hardest of pellets, without splitting them a worthy addition to the Guru stable.
Impact Bombs, There are times when you don’t want as much bait as a Method feeder typically delivers, but do still need something near your hookbait, and this is where the new Guru Impact Bomb comes into its own. The Impact Bomb is basically a flat pear shaped lead with a hole in the middle of it and a cage which bait can be pushed into, so that it will will stay in situ during the cast, with the majority of it ending up close to your hookbait – determined by how long your hook length is. These bombs have a wide variety of different uses, both on lakes and rivers, and the ‘cage’ can be filled with Method mix or dampened pellets to deliver a scent trail close to your rig. This is especially useful when you are considering fishing a straight lead but still want some bait in the area, so will also be a good choice in the colder months. They come in four different sizes – 2/3oz, 1.1oz, 1.5oz and 2oz – which covers everything from flicking a lead down the margins to fishing at longer range, or holding bottom on slower flowing rivers. Their shape and weight-forward design also means that they cast incredibly well, and accurately, and are less susceptible to catching a crosswind than a conventional Method feeder can be. The Impact Bomb is finished in Guru’s ‘commercial camo’ coating and comes with a swivel attachment, making it suitable for use with a variety of different set ups, including on a lead clip, running on the main line, or on a paternoster.
