Okay, so I know the majority of you may not experienced fishing with a braided main line and may be looking at the price tag with open eyes and a dropped jaw, but let me tell you working out to around £30 a spool it will be one of the wisest moves you have ever made. Utilising 100% Dyneema PF FIbres, the CB2000 has absolutely zero stretch making it the ultimate line to lead around and of course play fish on. It is true that it can be a very knee trembling experience the first time you play a carp, but as you feel every twist and turn and hear the sing of the braid in the wind you will be hard pushed to find a more electric and exciting means of playing a carp. I have been using the 30lb breaking strain variant and with a minimal line diameter of just 0.

The team at Gardner has not disappointed once again, bringing the Stiff variation of the ever-popular Ultra Skin to the market. Ideally suited to situations where you are fishing over a clear debris-free bottom, the coating can be stripped back to reveal a supple braid inner hook-link material. Once steamed, the hook link provides superb anti-tangle properties but also improves rig reaction speed, providing a straight line of contact between hook and lead. The durable material also means that when tightening down knots you won’t break the coating in the process, meaning perfect rigs time and time again.

THE TACKLE BOX’S LEE JACKSON SAYS: I must admit to being highly delighted when this range of hooks was reintroduced to the market, albeit under the new Carp Spirit banner. I’d been using these for quite a while when, unfortunately, they became unobtainable, which is most annoying when you find something that you like and are confident in. Made from the highest-grade Japanese carbon steel and finished in a non-reflective PTFE coating, these hooks have a microbarb, are ultra-sharp straight from the well-designed protective box that they come in and maintain their sharpness even after a number of uses. My favourite pattern, and the one I’ve used most, is the Medium Curve Shank.

Featuring Curved, Longshank Curved, Wide Gape and Straight Point, it doesn’t matter whether you prefer fishing pop-ups or bottom baits, you can rest assured that you will have the perfect presentation every time. One pattern that immediately caught my eye is the Longshank Curved.

Marc Coulson’s verdict - Easy to splice, nice flecked-green colour and very reliable There’s a proliferation of lead-free leaders nowadays, with very few terminal-tackle companies not producing one and, while I cannot claim to have tried them all, I’ve certainly either used or played around with most. As I talk about in my diary this month, my new syndicate water is extremely weedy, so I made a call to my old mate Lewis Read at Gardner and did my best Oliver Twist impression. It worked, and the generous old so-and-so sent me some of this to use. The mottled green finish is perfect and, to my liking, it’s a little thicker than some others.

For a very long time now I, and I’m sure many, many others, have played around with various ways of trying to eject the lead when using a helicopter rig. The problem has always been that to secure the lead on the cast, but then be able to eject it when needed, has not been an easy thing to achieve. The key there is ‘when needed’ because there have been a few systems created but mostly they dump the lead on every retrieve – a massive bugbear of mine. However, Korda has come up with a virtually foolproof system that does exactly what you need it to and you can switch from retaining the lead to dropping it very easily.

Although there are so many alternatives these days, I must admit to still being a fan of leadcore. I don’t honestly think that using it has ever cost me a bite, so I’m in no rush to switch. There has always been an issue with safely setting up a helicopter rig so that the top bead is secure enough on the cast but will release the hook link in the event of a breakage. The Leadcore Stop Beads are designed specifically with this purpose in mind and they work brilliantly.
