Korda Spod Braid Korda Spod Braid

Korda Spod Braid This braid casts superbly well, thanks to its low diameter, allowing you to bait spots right at the limit of your casting ability. You’ll notice that it has a rather unusual fluoro green colour, which helps to deter seagulls when baiting up with a throwing stick or floater fishing. Gulls just won’t swoop down when the hi-viz line is snaking out across your swim. It is hard-wearing and has high knot strength, which is key when you consider just how much punishment that your spod setup is subject to over the course of a year. 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.

Korda 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.

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.

ESP Olive Carp Mono 12lb - A tough and highly abrasion resistant reel line which combines durability with excellent knot strength. This easy to manage mono behaves well on the reel and has an ultra smooth finish for long range casting. - Economical and unobtrusive - Easy to manage, quick sinking, low friction - From improved line management and distance casting we recommend soaking the bulk spool overnight. The Mono absorbs water becoming extra limp and will then go onto the reel spool very smoothly with excellent line lay. - For those who prefer a really natural looking translucent green, E-S-P Olive is ideal. - Blends in perfectly with underwater weed or algae and virtually disappears against those backgrounds. - It has exceptional knot strength and abrasion resistance plus it sinks well and lays on the bottom following the contours of the lake bed and remains inconspicuous especially when fishing slack lines.

ESP Syncro XT Loaded 12lb Following its launch in 2011, the original ESP Syncro XT mono has grown to become one of the most widely used and well respected top end mainlines available. And with very good reason, it ticks all the boxes regarding what's required from a top performing carp mono: unbeatable knot strength, optimum stretch, superb abrasion resistance without being wiry and this relative suppleness makes it a front runner when it comes to distance casting. Highly respected known anglers such as Terry Hearn, Gaz Fareham, Kev Hewitt, Martin Bowler, Mark McKenna, Nick Helleur, Sean Leverett and Marcus Howarth switched to Syncro along with many others that are less well known but no lesser anglers. Many of these guys fish waters containing carp where nothing can be left to chance and a reliable mainline is key. Over the intervening period since the initial launch we have carried on testing various different mono samples and have yet to find anything better than Syncro, which combined all the attributes required. However during this testing process we explored different colours having been asked by some of our sponsored anglers for a darker olive green. The original samples which were in a different grade of monofilament looked superb, but were lacking when it came to strength. So we used the same dark olive pigment on the Syncro grade mono and that combined with a slight change to the surface finish gave us a line that had all the classic attributes of the original Syncro XT, but which sinks quicker. So Syncro XT Loaded was born and over the last eleven months the anglers that have been testing it for ESP have become completely sold on it. Upon casting out it sinks through the surface film virtually unaided until it just hangs from the rod tips. And if a slack line approach is required it stays that way, lying tight to the bottom to the extent that you can feel it peeling up off the lake bed when winding in. The dark olive pigment disappears against any lake bed and is actually very difficult to see when suspended off the rod tips, even in tap clear water. Regarding knot strength, just like the original Syncro XT, the new Loaded is underrated and the following knot strengths can be achieved using a carefully tied five turn grinner (tested on calibrated digital force meter):

Korda All Purpose Carp Line Carp Line If you’re looking for a tough, reliable line that won’t cost you the earth, then Carp Line is definitely the one for you! During testing Carp Line has already become a firm favourite with those who got their hands on the samples, including Elliott Gray and it is now his line of choice when fishing with mono. It is amongst the toughest lines on the market, without being problematic to use, and in any situation where weed or snags come into play it should definitely be your first choice to spool up with. It will handle weed, gravel bars and mussels better than most lines, but if there are signs of abrasion then it is also cheap to re-spool, as it comes on 1000m spools priced at just £12.99 – the price and spool size is the same for each of the five breaking strains available, 8lb, 10lb, 12lb, 15lb and 20lb. The line sinks well, even more so once it has been used a few times, and is a nice subtle SUB-green colour which blends in well with most lake beds and is hard to see even in clear water. For such a tough line it behaves well on the spool and casts well, plus gives a very high knot strength. The low stretch factor makes it ideal for feeling the lead down to the bottom and making sure you get that ‘donk’ and are confident in where your rig has landed. Damian Clarke, who was involved in designing the line, enthused: “With lots of our products, especially fishing lines, we work with some of the best manufacturers in the world. “These guys are pushingthe boundaries in manufacturing to create thinner, lighter and more technically advanced monofilaments, but with Carp Line we took a step back. “Some anglers just wanted something simple and reliable, a does what it says on the tin product, so Carp Line was born!” -

Korda Boom 25lb Stiff Link Fluorocarbon Boom is a game-changing fluorocarbon! It’s the 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.

Korda IQ 2 Hooklink Mr Steve Renyard has to take the credit for this addition to the range. Steve has been smashing the living daylights out of his favourite syndicate water for some time now on Fluorocarbon hook links. When he started fishing for Team Korda we naturally sent him some IQ. His response was: “it's a little bit stiff for what I want”. IQ is meant to be stiff that's why we think it catches more carp than normal mono, but we are always interested in new ideas and ways of fishing so when Steve started to talk we listened. Steve says: “first and foremost I use fluorocarbon because of its invisibility. I am so concerned about the fishes ability to detect the rig I have taken to using the standard IQ in 25lb as an anti-tangle leader. I use it about 4 feet long coupled with a Square Pear or Tournament swivel lead on a lead clip. Using fluorocarbon as a hook link also helps stop the whole lot from tangling on the cast. In the water the rig is much harder to see than normal, which I think gives me an edge. I am now using Fluorocarbon mainline too in an attempt to hide my presence from the carp even further. At the moment I feel I am fishing 'at the top of my game' and results have been superb taking 11 thirties plus loads of other smaller ones in just 4 weekend sessions. I like a slightly softer material because of the way it comes to rest after a cast. In contrast to most other people I want there to be some play in the hook link so as the bait is taken the hook link has to tighten slightly. If the hook link is already straight the bait may not move enough to get into their mouth. I fish beds of boilies a lot and have watched fish feeding on a scattering of boilies. Big fish tend to approach a bait, up end, suck the bait in and the right themselves before moving on to the next bait. Having a longer hookl ink of about 12 inches (30cm) gives the hook bait the movement I think it needs for the fish to get the hook properly in their mouth. It has worked for me on these types of waters for some time and is probably my favourite rig. I call it the 'simple complicated rig' because of the way I set up the hook. Steve uses stringers a lot of the time because he thinks they actually cause the hookl ink to lay with more of a curve than a single hook bait alone. This is because the weight of the stringer makes it sink far quicker than a single hook bait; this extra weight stops the stringer from falling away from the lead as far as a single. The stringer obviously creates a pile of baits which we know will attract the carp in faster than a single alone and these baits will stay there until a fish eats them, whereas a PVA bag of pellets or groundbait can easily be dispersed by feeding fish. If you don't believe us then check out any of the underwater films. A stringer or PVA bag of boilies will cause even the stiffer Fluorocarbons to lay in more of a coil than a straight line but if you are not using a bag or stringer only the softer fluorocarbons like IQ Xtra Soft will create the same 'slack' in the hook link, this is why I prefer them. It means I know the hook link is how I want it whether I'm using a stringer or not. Danny adds: "another added advantage of the softer material is that the bait does act more naturally if that's what you want. This really comes into its own when fishing with the lighter breaking strains like the 10lb and 12lb. Couple either of these with small hooks like a size 10 Wide Gape or Long shank and a small bait like one grain of maize or a bit of a boilie and you have a hook bait which behaves more like a free offering. It also makes these lines perfect for zig rigs being thin, very hard to see and soft enough to work well with small hooks, stiff hook links and small hooks do not go together and you will get hook pulls on them".

Korda Mouthtrap Mouthtrap has been designed to create the ultimate stiff rig in an easy hassle-free manner. During testing there is one element that particularly stood out for the lads involved in the team – this was the fact that it is easier to manipulate than any other stiff material on the market without the hassle of steaming over a piping hot kettle which takes up valuable fishing time and extra effort. Due to its unique make-up and high memory the material retains a perfect curve when formed. Consequently it creates the perfect hinged-stiff rig or chod rig that so many of us incorporate into our angling. In other words we have developed the BEST stiff filament out there. Mouthtrap which is available in 15lb 20lb and 25lb; is finished with a natural ‘carpy’ tint that will blend in with any background something that is the highest priority of Team Korda. So if you’re after a true stiff rig material that is better than anything else on the market take a look you won’t be disappointed!

Korda Spod Braid This braid casts superbly well, thanks to its low diameter, allowing you to bait spots right at the limit of your casting ability. You’ll notice that it has a rather unusual fluoro green colour, which helps to deter seagulls when baiting up with a throwing stick or floater fishing. Gulls just won’t swoop down when the hi-viz line is snaking out across your swim. It is hard-wearing and has high knot strength, which is key when you consider just how much punishment that your spod setup is subject to over the course of a year. 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.
Korda 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.

ESP Olive Carp Mono 12lb - A tough and highly abrasion resistant reel line which combines durability with excellent knot strength. This easy to manage mono behaves well on the reel and has an ultra smooth finish for long range casting. - Economical and unobtrusive - Easy to manage, quick sinking, low friction - From improved line management and distance casting we recommend soaking the bulk spool overnight. The Mono absorbs water becoming extra limp and will then go onto the reel spool very smoothly with excellent line lay. - For those who prefer a really natural looking translucent green, E-S-P Olive is ideal. - Blends in perfectly with underwater weed or algae and virtually disappears against those backgrounds. - It has exceptional knot strength and abrasion resistance plus it sinks well and lays on the bottom following the contours of the lake bed and remains inconspicuous especially when fishing slack lines.
ESP Syncro XT 12lb - The XT of Syncro literally stands for extra tough, indicating that this exceptional monofilament is highly abrasion resistant and durable. - The breaking strain quoted on each spool is an easily achievable knot strength, appropriate to its diameter. However, with carefully tied, mechanically superior knots like the five turn grinner, average breaking strains can be significantly increased.
ESP Syncro XT 15 lb - The XT of Syncro literally stands for extra tough, indicating that this exceptional monofilament is highly abrasion resistant and durable. - The breaking strain quoted on each spool is an easily achievable knot strength, appropriate to its diameter.

ESP Syncro XT Loaded 12lb Following its launch in 2011, the original ESP Syncro XT mono has grown to become one of the most widely used and well respected top end mainlines available. And with very good reason, it ticks all the boxes regarding what's required from a top performing carp mono: unbeatable knot strength, optimum stretch, superb abrasion resistance without being wiry and this relative suppleness makes it a front runner when it comes to distance casting. Highly respected known anglers such as Terry Hearn, Gaz Fareham, Kev Hewitt, Martin Bowler, Mark McKenna, Nick Helleur, Sean Leverett and Marcus Howarth switched to Syncro along with many others that are less well known but no lesser anglers. Many of these guys fish waters containing carp where nothing can be left to chance and a reliable mainline is key. Over the intervening period since the initial launch we have carried on testing various different mono samples and have yet to find anything better than Syncro, which combined all the attributes required. However during this testing process we explored different colours having been asked by some of our sponsored anglers for a darker olive green. The original samples which were in a different grade of monofilament looked superb, but were lacking when it came to strength. So we used the same dark olive pigment on the Syncro grade mono and that combined with a slight change to the surface finish gave us a line that had all the classic attributes of the original Syncro XT, but which sinks quicker. So Syncro XT Loaded was born and over the last eleven months the anglers that have been testing it for ESP have become completely sold on it. Upon casting out it sinks through the surface film virtually unaided until it just hangs from the rod tips. And if a slack line approach is required it stays that way, lying tight to the bottom to the extent that you can feel it peeling up off the lake bed when winding in. The dark olive pigment disappears against any lake bed and is actually very difficult to see when suspended off the rod tips, even in tap clear water. Regarding knot strength, just like the original Syncro XT, the new Loaded is underrated and the following knot strengths can be achieved using a carefully tied five turn grinner (tested on calibrated digital force meter):

ESP Tapered Shock Leaders 15lb to 40lb - 15lb to 40lb - 0.37mm to 0.59mm - 3 x 9 metres, available in Weedy Green and Crystal Clear - Not just tapered nylon but an advanced low stretch polymer with super slick finish - Low friction surface simply flies through the rod rings - Greatly reduced stretch means that all the casting power is transmitted direct to the lead for greater distance Tapered shock leaders are designed specifically for long range distance casting with big leads. Their ultra slick surface finish means they absolutely fly out through the rings When using a standard 12ft (3.66m) rod the 9 metre leader equates roughly to 3 or 4 turns on the reel spool plus the length of the rod above the reel, plus a 5 or 6ft (1.5 to 1.8m) casting drop down from the tip ring.
Fox Edges Tapered Soft Mono Leaders 12lb - 30lb Designed to take ‘shock’ of casting a heavy leader or spod long distances and prevent ‘crack-offs’ from occurring. As name suggests the leader is tapered so the line gradually becomes thicker as you wind it onto the spool. This taper allows you to use a thick shock leader but only have a small knot attaching it to main line which aids the distances you can achieve. Features- Low memory and low stretch Highly abrasion resistant 3 leaders per spool Each leader 12 mt long Trans Khaki

Korda All Purpose Carp Line Carp Line If you’re looking for a tough, reliable line that won’t cost you the earth, then Carp Line is definitely the one for you! During testing Carp Line has already become a firm favourite with those who got their hands on the samples, including Elliott Gray and it is now his line of choice when fishing with mono. It is amongst the toughest lines on the market, without being problematic to use, and in any situation where weed or snags come into play it should definitely be your first choice to spool up with. It will handle weed, gravel bars and mussels better than most lines, but if there are signs of abrasion then it is also cheap to re-spool, as it comes on 1000m spools priced at just £12.99 – the price and spool size is the same for each of the five breaking strains available, 8lb, 10lb, 12lb, 15lb and 20lb. The line sinks well, even more so once it has been used a few times, and is a nice subtle SUB-green colour which blends in well with most lake beds and is hard to see even in clear water. For such a tough line it behaves well on the spool and casts well, plus gives a very high knot strength. The low stretch factor makes it ideal for feeling the lead down to the bottom and making sure you get that ‘donk’ and are confident in where your rig has landed. Damian Clarke, who was involved in designing the line, enthused: “With lots of our products, especially fishing lines, we work with some of the best manufacturers in the world. “These guys are pushingthe boundaries in manufacturing to create thinner, lighter and more technically advanced monofilaments, but with Carp Line we took a step back. “Some anglers just wanted something simple and reliable, a does what it says on the tin product, so Carp Line was born!” -
Korda Arma Kord Arma-Kord is an incredibly abrasion resistant braided line, which is also supple and thin for its strength. It has been designed as a high performance snag /shock leader for extreme snag or long range situations. In tests this braid proved at least 50 percent more abrasion resistant than the nearest competitor, its thinner diameter and low vis brown colour also makes it far less detectable underwater.
Arma Kord Sinking Put simply, this is the sinking version of our all-conquering Arma-kord leader material. Arma-kord has rightly developed a great reputation for reliability and the addition of this sinking version will simply cement its place at the very top of the tree. Reach for this on demanding waters where snags make a solid snag leader essential. Currently available in 50lb and 30lb.
Korda Boom 25lb Stiff Link Fluorocarbon Boom is a game-changing fluorocarbon! It’s the 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.
Korda IQ 2 Hooklink Mr Steve Renyard has to take the credit for this addition to the range. Steve has been smashing the living daylights out of his favourite syndicate water for some time now on Fluorocarbon hook links. When he started fishing for Team Korda we naturally sent him some IQ. His response was: “it's a little bit stiff for what I want”. IQ is meant to be stiff that's why we think it catches more carp than normal mono, but we are always interested in new ideas and ways of fishing so when Steve started to talk we listened. Steve says: “first and foremost I use fluorocarbon because of its invisibility. I am so concerned about the fishes ability to detect the rig I have taken to using the standard IQ in 25lb as an anti-tangle leader. I use it about 4 feet long coupled with a Square Pear or Tournament swivel lead on a lead clip. Using fluorocarbon as a hook link also helps stop the whole lot from tangling on the cast. In the water the rig is much harder to see than normal, which I think gives me an edge. I am now using Fluorocarbon mainline too in an attempt to hide my presence from the carp even further. At the moment I feel I am fishing 'at the top of my game' and results have been superb taking 11 thirties plus loads of other smaller ones in just 4 weekend sessions. I like a slightly softer material because of the way it comes to rest after a cast. In contrast to most other people I want there to be some play in the hook link so as the bait is taken the hook link has to tighten slightly. If the hook link is already straight the bait may not move enough to get into their mouth. I fish beds of boilies a lot and have watched fish feeding on a scattering of boilies. Big fish tend to approach a bait, up end, suck the bait in and the right themselves before moving on to the next bait. Having a longer hookl ink of about 12 inches (30cm) gives the hook bait the movement I think it needs for the fish to get the hook properly in their mouth. It has worked for me on these types of waters for some time and is probably my favourite rig. I call it the 'simple complicated rig' because of the way I set up the hook. Steve uses stringers a lot of the time because he thinks they actually cause the hookl ink to lay with more of a curve than a single hook bait alone. This is because the weight of the stringer makes it sink far quicker than a single hook bait; this extra weight stops the stringer from falling away from the lead as far as a single. The stringer obviously creates a pile of baits which we know will attract the carp in faster than a single alone and these baits will stay there until a fish eats them, whereas a PVA bag of pellets or groundbait can easily be dispersed by feeding fish. If you don't believe us then check out any of the underwater films. A stringer or PVA bag of boilies will cause even the stiffer Fluorocarbons to lay in more of a coil than a straight line but if you are not using a bag or stringer only the softer fluorocarbons like IQ Xtra Soft will create the same 'slack' in the hook link, this is why I prefer them. It means I know the hook link is how I want it whether I'm using a stringer or not. Danny adds: "another added advantage of the softer material is that the bait does act more naturally if that's what you want. This really comes into its own when fishing with the lighter breaking strains like the 10lb and 12lb. Couple either of these with small hooks like a size 10 Wide Gape or Long shank and a small bait like one grain of maize or a bit of a boilie and you have a hook bait which behaves more like a free offering. It also makes these lines perfect for zig rigs being thin, very hard to see and soft enough to work well with small hooks, stiff hook links and small hooks do not go together and you will get hook pulls on them".
Korda Mouthtrap Mouthtrap has been designed to create the ultimate stiff rig in an easy hassle-free manner. During testing there is one element that particularly stood out for the lads involved in the team – this was the fact that it is easier to manipulate than any other stiff material on the market without the hassle of steaming over a piping hot kettle which takes up valuable fishing time and extra effort. Due to its unique make-up and high memory the material retains a perfect curve when formed. Consequently it creates the perfect hinged-stiff rig or chod rig that so many of us incorporate into our angling. In other words we have developed the BEST stiff filament out there. Mouthtrap which is available in 15lb 20lb and 25lb; is finished with a natural ‘carpy’ tint that will blend in with any background something that is the highest priority of Team Korda. So if you’re after a true stiff rig material that is better than anything else on the market take a look you won’t be disappointed!
Korda Sub Line SUBline carp mono has been specifically designed by Team Korda to cope with all extreme fishing requirements. We have tested lines for many years in our lab and SUBline has out performed all others in terms of toughness and knot strength. It is now the only choice when faced with heavy weed snags or the abrasive terrain of gravel. By using the latest line extrusion technology SUBline exhibits outstanding suppleness with the stiff wiry feel often found on super tough reel lines. In addition to all this we have added a very dense material to the formula ensuring the line sinks exceptionally well. Available in the key popular breaking strains with the addition of a 20lb version for dealing with extra heavy duty carping and European work - subtle green and brown colours are available.
