Spread-Em PVA Tape. This woven tape has a coarse texture to its flat cross section. This makes it perfect for stringers because the texture will actually hold the baits apart even with the force of the cast. It is not necessary to tie this onto the hook either, because of the woven element, all you have to do is hook the point of the hook through it, it will not tear on the cast and this ensures no residue is left around the hook once the tape has melted. This material is very strong when dry, making it ideal for tying up the top of solid PVA bags. Eazi-Melt PVA String We recommend you double it up by pulling your baits onto a loop of string and then hand the string over the hook before pulling the top bait back up against the hook to tighten the loop so the loop cannot slip back off the hook in flight. Do not use this product for tying the hair up tight to the hook, if it is pulled too tight the water cannot attack the PVA strands in the middle of the braid and the knot may remain, we recommend going over to the Kwik-Melt solid tape for this and any application where you need to tie a very tight over hand knot. You will find this string super strong when dry making it ideal for tying up the top of PVA bags where a small amount residue will do no harm to your presentation. Kwik Melt Tape Kwik Melt tape has become the favourite PVA tape for many of our most-admired big-carp anglers. It's great for stringers, as well as tying off PVA bags and securing hairs on the cast. As the name suggests, Kwik Melt dissolves reliably even in cold conditions. It is supplied as conventional 10mm tape, as well as 5mm twin-tape.
Bait Bayonets, Our Bait Bayonets make changing tough boilie or artificial hook baits quicker than ever. They're a simple, twisted metal spike with a ring on the end, which allows it to be tied to a hair rig. To mount a bait, you simply push the bayonet into the boilie, right up to the eye. This will provide a secure attachment, allowing long, forceful casts to be made, safe in the knowledge that the bait will stay on.
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.
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!" • Please Note: Due to varying stock throughout our stockists, lead colours may vary.

Big Eye Swivel, You asked us for these, so we added them to the range. These swivels have one very large round eye and one normal size one and, as with all our swivels, they come from the best Japanese manufacturers and have our trademark 'anti glint' dull-grey finish. They have three major uses. Firstly, they make very smooth running rigs when used as a replacement to the swivels found on the top of our leads. They were originally designed as part of the running rig kits. But, after too many enquiries to mention, we had to add them to the range. The second obvious use is for helicopter rigs. The large eye will rotate better if a large bead is used, whereas a smaller swivel would bump around the larger beads circumference. In other words, the large eye will slide effortlessly around it. They can also be used at the top of a link for the marker float - the large eye will allow the line to pull through that bit easier than a standard swivel. No doubt you will find other uses we haven't even thought of yet.
