ESP Cryogen Curve Shanx This is the same classic curve pattern previously known as the ESP Raptor, but this new range has been made even better by stepping up the wire gauge in each size and giving them the Cryogen treatment. These Curves are now around 25% stronger than their predecessors while still retaining long fine needle sharp points which are now extra durable. These are highly effective in a whole variety of rig presentations (perfect for the Ronnie Rig) and their quick turning, anti-eject shape combined with a needle sharp point ensures exceptional hook holds. The initial launch of ESP Cryogen hooks in March 2016 caused a massive stir with discerning anglers quickly recognising the distinct technical advantages they offered. They were the result of over three years of development and field testing which culminated in a new standard in strength and point durability. New manufacturing techniques including both high temperature and cryogenic tempering have produced significantly stronger hooks with more durable, long life points. Cryogenic tempering is a process used to improve the molecular structure in steel which in turn reduces stress and improves strength and wear resistance. It is used in many disciplines with Formula 1 engine parts being a classic example. Bench tests on initial samples proved to us that the new tempering processes combined with improved designs and heavy forging resulted in hooks that were 25-30% stronger than other PTFE coated carp hooks in the same wire gauge. We subsequently sent the hooks for independent scientific testing on hardness and tensile strength and the tests carried out confirmed and supported our initial findings. So rather than having to improve strength by simply increasing wire gauge, new manufacturing processes have allowed us to maintain optimum wire gauges for each size which allow for fine, ultra-sharp needle points which are now more durable than ever. ESP is now delighted to introduce three new patterns into the Cryogen range, with each type having been developed, tested and 'tweaked' over the last 18 months. They have proved outstanding in field testing and provide an even greater choice in high-performance, long-lasting carp hooks. Features: -  Three years of development -  Cryogenically tempered -  Incredibly strong -  Durable ultra sharp needle points -  Long straight points -  Tufflon coated -  Micro-barb

ESP Cryogen Grip Rigger As the name suggests, this is an amalgam of the best features of the Cryogen Gripper and Stiff Rigger, which is almost unfair on the carp! The shape is that of the Stiff Rigger, with the fine curved 'sticky' point of the Gripper. We have been getting asked for a while for a chod / stiff rigger hook with an ultra-sharp beaked point and have answered those pleas with a hook that has even converted a few straight point devotees through the testing process! Although hook choice is often down to personal preference rather than exact science, a beaked point can provide extra assurance especially in weedy or snaggy conditions, with unbeatable hook holds - and so they have proved through the testing process. Made in the same wire gauges as the Cryogen Stiff Riggers, making them the perfect pop up hook, the Grip Riggers feature heavy forging and of course the Cryogen treatment making them incredibly strong with durable points.

ESP Cryogen Gripper This pattern is the culmination of striving to design the perfect all round beaked point carp hook. The Gripper was subject to various design tweaks through the development process and the end result was well worth waiting for! The super fine, long curved point is the perfect shape and during testing, provided exceptionally secure hook holds. Other features include a 10-degree in-turned eye (slightly less than the Classic to allow for the inclined beaked point), heavy forging, micro barb and of course, the slick PTFE Tufflon coating. Over three years of development and the last two years spent thoroughly field testing prototype samples has culminated in the launch of a new range of hooks that we believe sets a new standard in strength and point durability. New manufacturing techniques including both high temperature and cryogenic tempering have produced significantly stronger hooks with more durable, long life points.

Over an exhaustive two-year field testing period where the hooks were used by around 15 independent specialist carp anglers plus ESP consultants Terry Hearn, Kev Hewitt and Martin Bowler, feedback has been wholly positive from everyone. In fact, we have barely heard of a point turning over let alone a hook gaping out! Over those two years, a serious amount of big carp have been caught on the new hooks from a wide variety of waters and every angler who has used them came back wanting more!

ESP Cryogen Para Point This is the absolute 'enforcer' of the range. The medium length shank, with an almost crystal bend and inclined point, make this an incredibly strong shape, further enhanced by the heavy forging and Cryogen tempering process. The long, fine needle sharp point, further enhanced by the slick Tufflon coating ensures excellent hook holds and the straight eye allows this pattern to be highly versatile as a bottom bait or pop up hook, with or without a kicker. The straight eye makes it especially effective for a Tungsten Loaded 'D-Rig' where the straight eye acts to increase the gape. The 'Para' has already become a real favourite amongst our testers and looks set to be the 'go to' all-rounder for years to come.

ESP Cryogen Stiff Rigger This legendary hook pattern has been further refined and improved to make it the go-to hook for hinged stiff rig and chod rig presentations. Compared with its predecessor the Mk-2, the super sharp point is longer and finer and more inclined towards the shank for a stronger shape. The point is also in-line with the 13 degree out-turned eye so all the force is straight along the point section of the hook, rather than across the gape making them incredibly strong. Heavy forging and PTFE Tufflon coating plus no discernible increase in wire gauge but with superior strength makes this the perfect pop-up hook!

Korda Krank Hooks This pattern is the brainchild of Tom Dove, who was looking to design a pattern of hook that had the aggressive sweeping shank of the Kurv Shank, with an enormous gape for maximum purchase and hooking potential. Throw in an offset point too and you have the Krank, a hook that's such a good hooker it's best used with a simple knotless knot setup! Tom had simple setups like his own 'muzza' in mind when he began the development process, but the end product is a much more versatile beast that ensures that not only will you hook more fish, but you'll land more too! Here's a rundown of the key features... - Super-sharp, beaked point. - In-turned eye. - Micro barb. - Offset point. - Curved shank.

Korda Kurv Shank Hooks Carp find this pattern very tricky to eject due to its curved shank, which drives into their bottom lip. It always flips when sucked in and there is no need to add any shrink tubing due to its in-turned eye. It can be used with a variety of presentations such as the blowback, KD rig and many more. The point is very sharp and it is reliable and strong. A firm favourite among some of the best carp anglers in the country. This hook pattern is also a fantastic addition to the Mutli Rig. Rather than using a Choddy Hook, you can incorporate a Kurv Shank. Due to the way that the rig is designed the Kurv will sit like a claw and whichever way the carp sucks in the hook bait, the point will be facing down ready to grab the bottom lip. A revolutionary design!

Korda Mixa Hooks The first dedicated floater fishing hook. These have been specifically designed to hook even the shyest feeding carp on the surface. With a short shank, wide gape, beaked offset point, they truly are made for the job. The final most noticeable point about these hooks, are their sharpness; hypodermic and piercing is the best possible explanation I can give. So much so that the guys at Korda have been using them for all manner of carp fishing situations. Korda’s Ali Hamidi commented; “They have been initially designed for surface fishing, but great hook patterns like this, considering their sharpness and characteristics lend themselves to lots of fishing scenarios. They’ve been catching specimen Chub, Barbel and obviously loads of carp during testing”. The Mixa hook is available in barbed and barbless versions, in size 6, 8, 10 & 12.

Korda Wide Gape Hooks The Hybrid, Wide Gape hook is based on the classic Maruta Kinryu spade end pattern – a popular shape in hook. The point is very slightly in-turned so it catches hold quickly creating solid hook holds every single time. This, coupled with ultra sharpness, forms a formidable hook pattern. The eye is in-turned 15-degrees to flip the hook over quickly and with the addition of shrink tubing makes it even more effective. This is a modern day classic without doubt. To show how trusted it is by big-carp anglers you'll have noticed that it has accounted for the biggest carp in the country, namely Two Tone, landed by the one and only Darrell Peck. He absolutely swears by this pattern and will use it for a number of presentations, whether that's boilie or particle fishing.

Korda Wide Gape X Hooks The Wide Gape X is basically a beefed-up version of the popular Wide Gape design, purposely designed to use when targeting carp in snaggy waters or those ultra-demanding European waters. The hook comprises all the same features as the Wide Gape but comes complete with a thicker gauge and a reinforced hook point. You can concoct many rigs with the Wide Gape and with the addition of some shrink tubing, it can create an aggressive presentation that carp find very hard to deal with. To develop a simple blowback rig, place the relevant sized Rig Ring onto the hook's shank, Danny Fairbrass style. You can also create a very effective anti-eject rig by sliding some Silicone Tubing onto the shank. This will trap the hair in place. Take a look at Rigz to learn how to do this.
