The Korda Zig Kit comes 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.

CARPERS will appreciate the attention to detail that has gone into the Korda Zig Kits. The adjustable zig is ideal for searching the water layers for carp with a buoyant hook bait.

You’ll find a light grey, unobtrusive float with this kit that’s large enough to pull the rig towards the surface, but compact enough to cast out a fair way if you need to. There’s also a soft insert in the top of the float that takes a size 11 quick-change swivel (supplied), coupled with a clear, anti-tangle sleeve, to stop line wrapping around it.

There’s also a boom section, with a big run ring and foam polyball at the top, to ensure that the boom sits up and out of the way of any debris on the bottom. At the other end of the boom, Korda have added a ball bearing swivel, where you clip your lead on, which has been designed to help prevent tangling.
