These durable rubber stops have a multitude of uses for float and feeder fishing. They're so tight that, once slid off the convenient sprew, they won't slip, even on fine-diameter line. They are available in three sizes, small (5mm), medium (6mm) and large (7mm). Guru's Adam Rooney explains why they're so good, We all use line stops and for years we have used other brands, so we thought, why not do our own? Rather than copying what was available, we discussed the key features we all wanted from the simple stops and produced these three sizes, which make a nice addition to the range.
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!"
Square Pear Swivel, Without any doubt, when fishing on a hard gravel bottom inline leads hook the carp quicker than swivel type leads. The reason for this is that the fish always pick up the lead from the heavy end first, because the hook link is always attached to the heavy end of the lead. In the case of Korda inlines the swivel is actually semi-fixed inside the lead, exaggerating the 'instant bolt' effect. What Dan set about doing after watching the fish hooking themselves on Part 4, was to design the most condensed shape of lead possible. So, a fish would have to move the minimum distance before it felt the full weight of the lead. Now, the most condensed shape of all is a ball, but a ball could possibly roll around before the full weight is felt and it isn't tapered towards the back of the lead enough to stop the hook link tangling around it. So, Dan chose to put four flat sides onto the ball and gently taper the back to avoid tangles. An appropriate name that summed up the lead, was of course the Square Pear. As an inline there is no lead out there that the fish will feel the full weight of more instantly. Even as a swivel lead, the fish will still feel more of the weight sooner because it's so short and one end of the lead is almost the same as the other. Only the movement of the swivel will make a difference. So in short, you have the most condensed inline lead and swivel lead there can be, with flat sides that works in a fishing situation.
KD Rig, These pre-tied KD rigs are a worthy addition to our ready-tied rig range, such is the popularity and effectiveness of this presentation. Korda was at the very heart of the KD-rig revolution a few years back, and the likes of Tom Dove and Ali Hamidi still use it, as well as its variant, the Muzza. So, with this in mind, we wanted to make sure that our ready-tied version was what we considered to be the ultimate KD on the market. After Tom tied and approved what he considered to be the perfect KD rig, we had it copied by our rig tiers. You'll notice that each ready-tied rig has been meticulously produced, to Tom's exacting specifications. The result is a range of rigs that Tom himself would happily cast out and use with confidence! The range, which numbers six rigs, is tied with proven Korda components, which include ultra-sharp Kurv Shanks and N-Trap coated braid. The range includes rigs with both barbed and barbless hooks, and in sizes that cover almost all eventualities. The KD range is available in hook sizes six, eight and ten and each rig comes with free Extenda stops and standard hair stops.
Dark Matter Leaders, Fused plastic leaders that have been tinted to precisely match the lake bed. They feature two tungsten bands along their length, which help to pin your tackle to the lake bed in the area of your rig. There are three types of leader available: ring swivel, Hybrid Lead Clip and Helicopter. Each leader is available in weedy green, gravel brown, clay and slit colours as well as clear. They are extremely robust too, with a breaking strain of 30lb.
