The humble swivel completes the whole rig set up and since it is almost the last connection between you and the carp it needs to be reliable. We always bought swivels from the same source, until our suppliers' supplier merged with a new company. The stocks were mixed and some were not as good quality so we immediately set about sourcing an alternative. They say that from every adversity comes an equal or greater benefit and in this case the swivels we located came from Japan - arguably the best swivel manufacturers in the world. They matched the size of the originals exactly, improved the breaking strain and reliability, and made them in a lovely dull grey tint. This was an improvement that entailed only a marginal increase in price - 10 per cent over 10 years! The swivels have round eyes because they are stronger than diamond eyes, if this were not the case then hooks would be made with diamond eyes! They fit just about everything that we make including - the Inline Leads, Lead Clips, Running Rigs, Shok Beads and Rubbers, what more can we say!
Zig Box, When you’re fishing zigs, a lot of the time you will have a variety of different lengths and different hookbait colour combinations tied up ready to go, but they can get in a real mess, and this is where the new Zig Box comes into play.The Zig Box is a compact storage system which will hold up to 20 pre-tied rigs on four EVA spools (which are supplied), complete with pins to hold them in place, and will fit neatly into a side pocket of your rucksack. Each spool will hold up to five rigs, dependent on how long they are.The box itself is made from tough, impact-proof plastic and closes securely, and it is compatible with the existing range of Korda ready rigs which come on spools, and it will hold eight of these or a combination of the two spool sizes.As well is storing zigs, it is also perfect for pre-tied leaders, such as for chod fishing, with the number you can fit in it dependent on the rig components on the leader.
Micro Lead Clip, The Micro Lead Clip is a mini version of the lead clips that specimen carp anglers have used for years. These clips have been sculpted so that the lines are smooth and resist tangles in flight. The Tail Rubbers fit perfectly flush with the body of the clip, further enhancing these anti-tangle properties. Perhaps most importantly, the Micro Lead Clips are completely fish safe, allowing the fish to ditch the lead should it become tethered. The colour has been chosen to best match the lakebed conditions found in lakes they practically disappear on the bottom, especially when feeding fish disturb the sediment around them. They are available in packs that contain ten clips, tail rubbers and swivels per pack representing great value for money!
