This clever system will allow us all to reach brand-new heights of neatness in rig creation. The Krimps and Krimp tool have been designed to allow easy rig construction with stiff materials (at the moment we only recommend Hybrid Stiff, Mouth Trap and Boom). In particular, we're really excited about the potential to create extremely neat loops for chod rigs and Boom sections. Not only this, but using Krimps will allow you to create chod rigs that are exactly the same length each and every time. There are two sizes of Krimp available, which have been designed to suit different materials. The smaller one will suit stiff bristle materials like Mouth Trap and stiff coated braids, like our Hybrid Stiff, and the larger one is perfect for really thick materials (like 30lb plus mono or the 35lb Boom). The product development team went to extreme lengths to make sure that the Krimps and Krimp tools were exactly right, having to overcome various problems along the way. The complexity of getting the tool and Krimps just right has meant that this has been a long development, but we're sure that it's been well worth the wait.
Leadcore Chod System, The Leadcore Chod Safety System is, without doubt, the biggest advance in rotary-rig safety EVER. The specially designed Chod Sleeves, Barrel Beads and No-Trace beads combine to offer a solution to the problems that consistent hook link ejection has dogged leadcore users for years. The single most important aspect of a helicopter setup is the facility that allows the hook link to travel up and off the leader should a carp pick up a cracked-off rig or become cut off during a fight. Previously, in order for the hook link to pass over the end of the leader, allowing the carp to ditch both lead and leadcore, a relatively small-bored helicopter bead had to pass over first. This was problematic if any weed or debris collected around the leader knot or spliced loop. The design of the Chod Sleeve and No-Trace Bead eliminates this problem. The hard plastic No-Trace Bead has a huge bore and, here's the clever bit, a slot in the side that allows it to drop off the leader entirely once it has popped off the coned Chod Sleeve. This allows the size-11 Ring Swivel to proceed up and over the leader knot with ease. Another industry first for Korda! We recommend that you use the system with strong, fast-sinking main line, such as SUBline or Kontour.
SUBline, SUBline is fast becoming a modern classic. It's a true big-fish hunter's line, with all the performance and reliability that you could ask for in a monofilament main line. It's incredibly tough and abrasion resistant, yet it casts extremely well, thanks to its suppleness. As you'd expect, it also sinks like a brick, making it the go-to line for many of the carp scene's biggest names.
Beta Hoodie, Guru Beta (Navy) hoodies are the latest releases in the Guru clothing range. The material and fitting follow the original Guru hoodie design with a cross-over front collar, double hood for keeping the draft out and ribbed underarm panels to enhance upper body movement. They're cosy enough for winter wear, yet you'll also find them ideal for keeping out the chill on early summer, spring or autumn mornings.
Wide Gape, The Wide Gape hook has become a true design classic, and has accounted for more big carp than any other pattern. It was based on the cult Maruta Kinryu pattern that found favour with the likes of Terry Hearn in the 1990s. The five-degree in-turned eye, short shank, heavily forged bend and beaked point combine to give anglers a hooked-to-landed ratio far in excess of anything else that's achievable. It can be used for pop-up and bottom-bait presentations and is the hook to opt for when fishing for the very biggest and trickiest carp around.
