The Kodex K-Pulse Main Line 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.

Description: main line for carpers.

Specifications: 12 lb (0.28 mm), 15 lb (0.30 mm) and 18 lb (0.33 mm) breaking strains; fast-sinking co-polymer; non-flash, satin-silk finish; good abrasion resistance; high knot strength; Burnt-Amber colour.

My verdict: the first thing that I noticed about this line is its diameter, as it is low for its breaking strain, which will help it to cast further than thicker diameter lines in the same breaking strain. It’ll be a useful line for the colder months ahead, when the fish can be ‘holed-up’ in the middle of the pond.

It’s a fast-sinking line, and it hangs quite nicely off the spool, too, indicating that is has little memory, which is a good thing.

The colour looks right, and the satin-silk finish helps it glide through rod rings, which will add extra distance to your cast. You’ll find that knots bed down better than with other lines, which will surely give you confidence.

I think it is an ‘interesting’ line. If you’re on a water where you need to cast a few extra yards than you normally do, perhaps because angling pressure has driven fish further away, it may get you back in the ‘game’.

You should be able to load three reels with one spool of line. Bonus!

Price: £14.99 for 1,000 m.
