Description: ready-tied specimen carp rigs.

Specifications: two 3.5 in.-long rigs per pack; tied with 15 lb braid, a size 6 or 8 Genomic MGP wide gape barbless hook, a quick-change, anti-glare size 8 swivel, an adjustable hair and a Weed Green anti-tangle sleeve.

My verdict: the idea with these ready-to-go rigs is that they can be popped inside or pulled through a solid PVA bag or PVA stick, a task made easier thanks to the quick-change swivel.

Being just 3.5 in. in length, the long, sharp, micro-ground point of the hook should quickly prick fish in the bottom lip, against the weight of the lead.

The little silicone sleeve on the hook shank offers a degree of adjustability for different-sized hook baits, and the anti-tangle sleeve at the other end of the rig should help separate the bait from the lead.

You could also use them when targeting bigger fish with a Method feeder.

They’re not bad little rigs, in my opinion.

Price: £2.85 a pack.
