    Korda mouth trap.

    Post  Dan Jefferies on Tue Aug 10, 2010 8:28 am

    Anyone else tried this? I bought some on a reccomdation from Tom and i have to say im rather impressed. Ive used hinged stiff links for years now for most of my carp fishing and the components have never changed, always used 20lb bristle filament and 30lb amnesia. I am always reluctant to change something that isnt broke but this stuff i think will take the place of the bristle filament. Its much easier to get that really nice smooth curve that i like in the hook section of the rig. So far so good from me.

    Hi Dan

    I know what you mean about that not broke idea. I have read a little about the MT and so was interested in this due to the ability to curve it easier.
    Has it the same stiffness as Stiff bristle?, do the knots bed down well? can the Korda sticker be peeled off easy tongue

    I havent used mouth trap but i did take a look at it in my local tackle shop and had a demonstration. I was impressed with how easy it was to "Kurv"

    I will be investing in some when my bristle filament runs out. Let us know how you get on with it Dan. Its such a shame its made by Korda!

    Why is there a big Korda back lash at the moment? I like a lot of their kit.

    I dont think its quite as stiff as BF i bought in 20lb same as i use in BF so maybe the 25lb Mouth trap will be comparable to 20BF. I will get some and give it more of a try and report back.

    To be fair Dan i do use some of Kordas gear aswell.

    I know every company has its good and not so good products but i find their leadclips are absolutely crap. They are not safety clips in my opinion.

    Thats what my thoughts were, Dan would you say it is inbetween amnesia and SBF?

    i did find the MT good for the boom section over hard bottoms with SBF being the chod section.
