The Korda QC Booms come under the beady eye of Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard. He's the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week.

THESE Korda QC Booms are ready-to-go, stiff hook length sections and they come in 5.5 and 7.5 in. lengths.

They’re constructed from 25 lb Boom with a QC swivel at the end, for direct hook attachment for rigs such as the spinner or Ronnie rig, using a Kicker to secure the hook in place, and with a loop at the other end.

They’re neat, they’re tidy and they certainly take the fiddlyness out of working with stiff hook length materials.

Price: £3.49 for three.
