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!
Marker Braid, This braid casts superbly well, thanks to its low diameter, and transmits the feel of the lake bed accurately back to your rod, allowing you to find the very best feeding areas with your marker float setup. It is hard-wearing and has high knot strength, which is key when you consider just how much punishment that your marker setup is subject to over the course of a year. The Marker braid is finished in a SUB-Green colour, to make it as unobtrusive as possible. 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.
Propolis Carp Care, Propolis is a topical treatment used to help seal fish ulcers, open wounds on both the mouth and body and damaged fins. Propolis is a waxy substance produced by bees to protect against infection. Propolis is supplied as a thick, dark brown liquid for easier application and lasting protection when fish are introduced back into water. spread over cleaned and dried ulcers and wounds to form a waxy seal.
Lanyard, When you’re perched up a tree or leaning over the edge of the bank, the last thing you want to have to worry about is that your sunglasses could fall off, and this lanyard solves that problem. Should they fall off whilst being worn it will not only prevent you from losing them in certain situations, but will also protect them from the damage they could have sustained should they have hit the ground – lenses and stones definitely don’t go together well! The length of the lanyard can be adjusted to fit any size of head, and also gives the freedom to allow you to leave the sunglasses dangling around your neck when not in use. It will fit onto the frames of any model in our 4th Dimension range.
Boom, Boom is a game-changing fluorocarbon! It’s our first fluorocarbon that can be crimped, which opens up a world of uses for rig tying. Its prime function is for creating stiff boom sections to help kick the hook bait away from the lead system, something Boom does each and every cast. You can use it to make combi-rigs, or out-and-out stiff rigs, for pop-ups and bottom baits alike. Your imagination is the only limit to its rig applications. Being a fluorocarbon, Boom blends with all lake bed types and, thanks to its subtle, green tint, it’s always inconspicuous to carp feeding around it. Boom is available in 0.55mm and 0.65mm, on 15m spools.
