Stiff Link Description
Korda Boom is a super stiff fluorocarbon rig material which has been given a subtle green tint to make it even less obtrusive, and deals with the problem of standard fluorocarbon sometimes ‘flaring’ when light catches it on the lake bed. The colour that has been chosen makes it blend in as much as possible.
It has been designed so that it can be crimped, with special Korda Krimps, in three sizes., Each designed to fit perfectly and to give as high a breaking strain as possible – using the wrong size of crimp will reduce the strength of the connection.
The easiest way to get this stiff material to lie dead straight is to steam it. Any minor kinks can also be corrected in this way, or in some cases just by running it between your fingers under pressure.
It comes in a choice of 15lb, 25lb or 35lb breaking strains, and it is incredibly durable and abrasion resistant, making it suitable for use both in the UK and overseas. With a diameter of 0.55mm for the 25lb version it is thicker than some of the other stiff link materials available, but intentionally so as this is partly what makes it so good for its intended use and helps ensure that the hookbait is kicked away from the lead.
Coming on a 15m spool, this will become the stiff hook link material of choice, whether you are going for a hinged stiff rig or some form of combi-rig presentation featuring a very stiff section. It can be knotted to braid easily and with confidence through the use of an Albright knot.
