GLIDE POWER RODS
WHAT THEY SAY: These two Glide rods are designed for smaller rivers and stillwaters – just the job if you relish the feel of a hard-fighting fish on the float. The butt and middle sections are built from parabolic carbon to give a powerful fish-playing action, while high-modulus carbon takes over in the tip for fast line recovery and a lightning response to fast bites. Guides are sized for fixed-spool and centrepin reels.
WHAT WE SAY: These are sure to big hitters. On the Trent, Severn, and Wye they’d be the ideal tools to handle barbel and big chub on the float. Look out for the exclusive live test on these new rods soon in Angling Times.
Price: 11ft £64.99, 12ft £69.99, www.korum.co.uk
ALL ROUNDER QUIVER RODS
**WHAT THEY SAY:**These classic quivertip rods are supremely suited to all modern feeder fishing and traditional legering tactics. Three tip options give the choice of sensitivity for small species and cold weather fishing, or the power to deal with larger species on the Method feeder.
As much at home on rivers as they are on stillwaters, the All Rounder Quiver series have slim, lightweight blanks, responsive tips, a beautiful progressive action with high-calibre fittings, strong guides and hard cork handles.
WHAT WE SAY: We really like the look of these classically designed and built rods. To complete their ‘old school’ feel, Korum has finished them in dark brown set off by classy gold whippings that make them look simply amazing. Shorter lengths and a through action should suit them to small river lead and feeder tactics as well as commercial fishery work for big carp.
Price: 10ft £54.99, 11ft £59.99
WHAT THEY SAY: This is the ultimate big bait, big fish float for fast-running water, especially when used with larger hookbaits. With strong 2.5mm thick alloy stems, these super-buoyant floats have ultra-bright and highly visible tips.
WHAT WE SAY: The Flat Top design is great for quicker glides. The body also has a line-through feature so you can slow the float down without it riding too high in the water. In 4g, 5g, 6g and 8g sizes.
GLIDE STICK FLOAT SILICONE
WHAT THEY SAY: This durable mixed pack of black silicone rubber can be cut to length for stick float fishing and includes 2mm, 3mm, 5mm and 8mm sizes in 60mm lengths.
WHAT WE SAY: Ever ended up robbing bits of tail or topper rubber from other floats? No further need to rob Peter to pay Paul. We’re going to buy a lifetime’s supply just as soon as it comes out, and suggest you do the same!
WHAT THEY SAY: The ultimate big fish Avon float, this is designed for use with a Korum Glide Inline Olivette placed on the line around 2ft from the hook, plus one or two dropper shot.
WHAT WE SAY: Korum’s first running water floats, and they look brilliant. A well-thought out, robust design includes clever features such as in-line bodies and highly visible flat tops. In 4g, 5g, 6g and 8g sizes.
