In Rigworld this month we take a look at the new Cryo­gen hooks and Tung­sten Loaded Tube from ESP, plus PB Prod­ucts’ nifty Ziglin­ers. We also check out Su­fix’s In­visi­line, as well as Bul­let Mono and Skin­link from the guys at Nash

Nash Tackle Skin­link RRP: £9.99

On­line: www.nash­tackle.co.uk

Coated hook­links have been around for a num­ber of years now, dur­ing which time they have been de­vel­oped from the very dif­fi­cult to work with orig­i­nals, to the su­per user-friendly ma­te­ri­als we have nowa­days.

New for 2018, Nash Tackle have in­tro­duced a brand new coated braid to their TT range called Skin­link. This rev­o­lu­tion­ary ma­te­rial utilises a wo­ven Kevlar core rather than a stan­dard braid. If you are think­ing you have heard of Kevlar be­fore, then you would be right, it is used in the con­struc­tion of bul­let­proof vests, amongst other things. It is five times stronger than steel, so the abra­sion re­sis­tance of the Skin­link is ab­so­lutely off the scale!

Nash Tackle Bul­let Mono RRP: £19.99

On­line: www.nash­tackle.co.uk

There haven’t been too many prod­ucts on the mar­ket that can lay claim to be­ing leg­endary, but the orig­i­nal Bul­let XT was def­i­nitely one of them. Thank­fully, Nash have in­tro­duced a brand new ver­sion of this in­cred­i­bly pop­u­lar line, ready for an­glers to use this sum­mer. Due to ad­vance­ments in tech­nol­ogy, the new line has re­tained its leg­endary abra­sion re­sis­tance and knot strength, yet been made much more sup­ple. This makes the new Bul­let Mono a bet­ter cast­ing line than its pre­de­ces­sor and it now pretty much ticks all the boxes as the per­fect all-round main line. The new mono is avail­able in both green and brown, to suit ev­ery­one’s tastes. It is avail­able in four break­ing strains: 10lb, 12lb, 15lb and 20lb. Each 1000m spool is sup­plied with a set of in­struc­tions to get the best out of it and is priced at £19.99.

This su­per tough ma­te­rial is com­bined with an easy to strip outer coat­ing. De­spite it be­ing rel­a­tively easy to re­move the coat­ing, it won’t break when tied, which has been an in­her­ent prob­lem of most coated braids in the past. The com­bi­na­tion of the coat­ing and the Kevlar core make Skin­link one of, if not the, fastest-sink­ing, coated hook­links on the mar­ket. A sec­tion of Sin­klink, with no hook, bait or any­thing else at­tached, will sink to the bot­tom like a brick, which is quite re­mark­able.

Skin­link is avail­able now from all good Nash stock­ists. It comes in both semi-stiff and stiff va­ri­eties, in four break­ing strains: 15lb, 20lb, 25lb and 35lb. There are three non-re­flec­tive colours avail­able: Weed, Gravel and Silt, which all come on 10m spools priced at £9.99.

ESP Tung­sten Loaded Tube RRP: £5.45 On­line: www.esp-carpgear.com

Many of the UK’S fish­eries en­force a leader ban, yet it re­mains im­por­tant to use some sort of pro­tec­tion be­tween you and the rig to pre­vent tan­gles and pro­tect a fish dur­ing the fight. ESP have a brand new rig tube which is now avail­able: the Tung­sten Loaded Tube. This new tub­ing is ex­cep­tion­ally heavy, even heav­ier than lead­core in fact. They have stated it weighs 8½g per 1m length, which con­sid­er­ing its rel­a­tively thin di­am­e­ter is quite re­mark­able. The in­ner bore is wider than most, mak­ing thread­ing your main­line through it a dream. It will even ac­cept a range of ta­pered cast­ing lead­ers if re­quired. Its 1.6mm outer di­am­e­ter also makes it suit­able for all man­ner of tail rub­bers. Avail­able in three muted colours: Weed Green, Camo Brown and Silt Grey, Tung­sten Loaded Tube re­tails at £5.45 for 2¼m.
