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 Guru micro shot…

POOR quality micro shot can prove a reel pain, which is why the team at Guru have addressed the issue.

Small but perfectly formed, it’s made for Guru by ZLT. Made from pure lead, it’s perfectly cut so it’s easy to locate on the line.

Available in sizes 8 through to 12, it causes minimum damage when you squeeze it shut, you should also find that it stays put, rather than slides when you hook a fish.

Add to that the fact that the slim ‘shot pots’, allow you to store the full range of sizes without taking up a lot of room.

And the flip top corner access on the pots means you’re a lot less likely to tip them over the floor, you can see it’s been well thought out.

It’s also competitively priced as you get around 15 g in a pot.

Price: £2.50.
