The Naked Chod Safety Fishing System from Korda offers one the biggest advances in rotary-rig safety as it uses specially designed Chod Sleeves, Barrel Beads and No-Trace beads combined. These offer a solution to the problems that consistent hook link ejection has dogged helicopter rig users for years.
The single most important aspect of a helicopter setup is the facility that allows the hook link to travel up and off the line should a carp pick up a cracked-off rig or become cut off during a fight. Previously, in order for the hook link to pass over the severed end of the line, allowing the carp to ditch the lead and trailing line, a relatively small-bored helicopter bead had to pass over first. This was problematic if any weed or debris had collected on the line or beads.
The design of the Chod Sleeve and No-Trace Bead eliminates this problem. The hard plastic No-Trace Bead has a huge bore and, here's the clever bit, a slot in the side that allows it to drop off the line entirely once it has popped off the coned Chod Sleeve. This allows the size-11 Ring Swivel to proceed up and over the end of the line with ease. The Naked Chod Safety System Barrel Beads and Chod Sleeves are tungsten-impregnated to help make sure that the rig is presented where you want it, on the deck.
Korda recommends that you use the system with strong, fast-sinking main line, such as SUBline or Kontour.
Korda Naked Chod Fishing System
The Korda Naked Chod Fishing System is a revolutionary rig safety solution specifically designed for serious anglers, providing a seamless combination of Chod Sleeves, Barrel Beads, and No-Trace Beads to address the persistent hook link ejection issues experienced by helicopter rig users.
A critical element of helicopter setups is the ability for the hook link to move up and off the line in the event of a carp picking up a cracked-off rig or becoming cut off during a fight. In the past, this required a small-bored helicopter bead to pass over the line first, which could be problematic if any weed or debris had accumulated on the line or beads.
The innovative Chod Sleeve and No-Trace Bead design of the Korda Naked Chod Fishing System effectively resolves this issue. The hard plastic No-Trace Bead features a large bore and a side slot, allowing it to drop off the line completely once it has popped off the coned Chod Sleeve. This clever design enables the size-11 Ring Swivel to easily glide up and over the end of the line, ensuring the safety and effectiveness of your rig.
The system includes three tungsten-impregnated Chod Sleeves and three Barrel Beads, which help guarantee that your rig is presented exactly where you want it – right on the bottom. The tungsten weighting ensures that your setup remains securely in place, increasing your chances of a successful catch. The package also contains 12 hard plastic No-Trace Beads, allowing for multiple setups or replacements as needed.
For optimum results, Korda recommends using the Naked Chod Fishing System with robust, fast-sinking main lines such as SUBline or Kontour. These lines provide added strength and reliability, ensuring that your rig remains in prime position throughout your angling session.
The Korda Naked Chod Fishing System offers a game-changing solution to helicopter rig safety, combining state-of-the-art design with practicality and ease of use. It not only addresses the longstanding issue of hook link ejection, but also ensures the perfect presentation of your rig on the bottom, maximising your chances of a successful catch. This product is a must-have addition to the tackle box of any discerning angler seeking to enhance their rig safety and overall fishing experience.
