New Chod-Safe, Mini Rig-Safe and XX hooks in shops now!

A raft of new Korda products hit the shelves this week with the Chod-Safe, Mini Rig-Safe and XX hooks all landing in tackle shops. Here's what you need to know about this trio of must-have new releases.

The Chod Safe is expected to be a popular addition to carp angler’s tackle over the next few weeks, with the stylish cylindrical design holding up to 28 chod sections and three Heli-Safe leaders.

A pop-out handle design allows you steam sections to achieve the perfect curve and doubles up as a compartment to hold the pins (it comes with 30 pins) plus the system has two different sized sections, allowing storage of long and short sections.

We’ve designed the Chod-Safe to be the ultimate storage system for chod rigs and leaders, ensuring the rigs are safe during transit and ready-to-go when you’re on the bank. It’s in shops now with an RRP of £18.99.

The Chod Safe’s cousin, the Mini Rig-Safe, is also out now and offers a compact storage solution for up to 60 seperate eight-inch-long rigs.

The unique double magnet design keeps the compact, non-slip finish Mini Rig-Safe securely shut during transit, and dry during wet weather. A ridged aluminium bar also keeps hooks (size 2-12) secure and sharp, whilst the pins keep each rig tangle-free and ready to use.

Also supplied are 15 double pins that allow rigs without loops or swivels to be stored, pinning the link material to the board. This allows the angler to adjust the length of their rig according to the situation, rather than fixing the length by tying a loop or swivel. The Mini Rig-Safe has an RRP of £17.99.

The X range of hooks need no introduction, having made a name for themselves as the go-to hooks when ultimate strength and reliability are concerned. After listening to feed back from Korda customers who wanted an even stronger addition to the range, the XX hooks were born.

Available in two patterns, Wide Gape and Kurv Shank, the XX is two wire gauges heavier than the X models, making them suited to the most demanding of big carp angling situations.

Both XX patterns retain the original dimensions (15-degree in-turned eye, beaked point and microbarb for the Wide Gape; and 28-degree downturned eye, straight point and microbarb for the Kurv Shank) and are available in sizes 1, 2, 4, 6 and 8 with an RRP of £3.99.

Double pins allow any length of rig to be secured in the Mini Rig-Safe
