Gardner Target XL Buffer Beads,
XL Buffer Beads have been designed to work specifically with size 12 Target Kwik Lok Swivels. They have been designed to sheath the swivel, protect the mainline knot and retain the hooklink whilst cleverly keeping a hinge that aids presentation with stronger hooklinks. This is done by having the internal bore slightly shorter than the full length of a size 12 Kwik Lok Swivel. In practice this means that by pulling the swivel out the bead you can change hooklinks quickly and easily, and when the Kwik Lok Swivel is pulled back in to the bead the hooklink is secures in place without need for an Anti Tangle sleeve.
With this simple but effective system another benefit is there is still a little free movement between the looped hooklink and the bead. This means that when you loop stiffer hooklinks (like skins and Fluorocarbon) the hinge point at the connection offers the hook bait a little more unhindered movement and a more natural presentation.
By using the tried and tested Kwik Lok System on a swivel you do not compromise strength and is recommended over plastic style connectors that can burr or cut.
As anglers we all know how important it is to keep all the components that make up our terminal tackle as camouflaged and subtle as possible and having good camouflage colours and scaling down the size of items like these Lead Clips helps you create a more effective and less obvious set up.
Target XL Buffer Beads are available in two excellent colours Natural Green and Natural Brown.
