Korda Black and Whites Bobbin
Korda is a brand which is famous for its product innovation and each item that the brand releases is more hotly anticipated than the one before it! This is with good reason, too, as Korda is a brand which consistently delivers and the brand is proud to say that they have never released a new product ‘just because’. In fact, each new product the brand designs is as a directly result of the team perceiving a gap in the market and a need on the bank. These Black and Whites are the new indicators from the brand but, as you might expect, these are much more than just another bobbin. In fact, this revolutionary design has been banded around the Korda offices for some twenty years – almost the brand’s entire lifespan. In classic Korda style, the brand refused to release these until they met the team’s famously high standards. Finally, the day has come and Black and Whites are available for the wider angling world!
The first thing you’ll notice about the range of bobbins is its ‘floating isotope’ design. This is achieved by inserting a ‘crystal clear’ plastic infill into the centre of the bobbin. When you insert an isotope into the especially created cavity (which can be accessed using the supplied Korda-green screwdriver), it will appear as if your isotope is floating right in the centre of your bobbin for an exceptionally carpy look! The brand, of course, prefers to use a green isotope but you can insert any isotope of your choosing into the setup.
The next thing you’ll notice about the Black and Whites Bobbin range is its dedicated adjustable line clip. This is a special design which allows line to flow through the clip without being gripped, ensuring that your bobbins are never the cause of any carp-losing line damage! The mechanism to tighten the grip strength of the bobbin runs right through the centre of the bobbin. Simply twist to increase or decrease the clip strength of your bobbin, giving you the ultimate product customisation.
These Black and Whites come supplied with their very own magnetic bayonet style hockey sticks. These are fully compatible with the Korda Stow system, so you can change between styles on the bank with ease – simply detach the bobbin from the stick and replace it with the Stow style indicator without having to change your rods! The bobbin also comes supplied with two different chain lengths. This allows you to choose the perfect length for your style of angling, whether you prefer the standard 6 inch length or you prefer a slightly longer 9 inch. Each bobbin also comes with two interchangeable weights. This allows you to modify your setup depending on the conditions on the day, so whether you’re fishing on a mill-pond still day or wild current heavy waters in the wind, you’ll be able to enjoy to precision of indication that these bobbins afford you.
There are four sizes of bobbin available. The first of these is a small bobbin, which comes supplied with 5g and 8g weights and is fitted with a lightweight chain. Next up is a medium sized bobbin. This comes with 10g and 15g weights and a heavy chain, as does the large version of the bobbin. Finally, the XL version of the bobbin comes with huge 20g and 30g weights. This is ideal if you’re an angler who likes to target wild waters with heavy flowing currents! As the name suggests, these bobbins are available in white or black, allowing you to pick the perfect colour to complement your carp fishing setup.
