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!
Joggers, These new olive green fitted joggers have combat style detailing and a brushed-fleece finish. They are made from a 60/40 blend of cotton and polyester, which won’t absorb moisture, keeping you cool in the summer. The zippable pockets have all been configured to offer the best storage options for carp angling!
X-Press Method Mould, In order to make the best, most consistent method balls that fly further and truer, the feeder has to be loaded perfectly. The method mould offers the best way of achieving this. That's why the Guru team wasted no time in releasing the X-Press Method Mould. These clever devices make moulding pellets or groundbait around our X-Safe or Inline feeders child's play. The clever, non-stick inner, coupled with the flexible construction, will ensure that perfectly formed feeders full of bait drop out into the palm each and every time. Once you've used the X-Press mould, you simply won't want to use another version.
Big Grippa, These leads are perfect for anywhere that you need more grip, like rivers, on the sides of bars, marginal slopes or boating out at extreme range. We have recorded that you can get the same grip with a 1oz Grippa as you can with a 2oz Swivel Pear lead. So, with that in mind, you can get away with a smaller lead to do the same job, which is an advantage when fishing for barbel and chub on the rivers. Also, a lighter lead makes a smaller splash so we like using them for casting to gently sloping island margins where a round lead can roll down. The Grippas have become massively popular on the continent where carping in wide fast flowing rivers is the norm and where you have to boat out baits massive distances.
4" QM1 Bait Band, These short ready-tied rigs have been designed for use with the Method, Hybrid and Pellet feeders. They're tied with bait bands, which make baiting with hard pellets child's play. They're tied with the radical QM1 hooks, which provide first-class hook holds and allow you to bank more fish, when you need it most. This pattern of hook makes the absolute most of the self-hooking potential of the bolt effect given by these modern methods.
