Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard is the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week. Here's his lowdown on the Taska Baseline Tungsten Beads and Rubbers…


IF YOU thought these popular weighted terminal tackle accessories were never returning, don’t despair they’re back thanks to the Taska teams hard work.

They all contain Tungsten to make them heavy, so your carp end tackle stays pinned to the deck.

The Solid Beads in 4, 6 and 8 mm come on a wired loop for easy mounting, and are fished semi-fixed – they’re great for naked chod rigs.

The Swivel Chod Beads sit over the eye of the swivel on your chod rig to balance your pop-up, saving the need to mould putting around it.

Ultra heavy, they come in two sizes – small and large.

The Tungsten Tail Rubbers help eliminate any doubts that you had about having an air bubble trapped inside the rubber and your end tackle ‘sitting up’.

Because of the Tungsten compound’s suppleness, your lead can still safely eject too.

Price: Solid Beads – £3.45 per pack (6-9 pieces). Mixed sizes £4.25 for 12. Swivel Chod Beads £4.25 for ten. Tail Rubbers – £4.25 for ten.
