The TC team has been extremely impressed with the Razor Points, and we’ve all rated them as some of the sharpest hooks we’ve seen in a very long time. For me, as I’ve mentioned elsewhere in this issue, when you’re paying the sorts of prices that modern hooks command (these are over £1 less than some on the market), you’re entitled to expect them to be sharp straight from the packet. These do not disappoint, but more importantly, they are consistently sharp across all of the various patterns and in all sizes – the latter not being particularly true of some ranges. As usual, there is a Teflon-type coating, the camou benefits of which I have always doubted (on all hooks) but there’s no doubt that it makes the hooks smoother, so it’s presumed that they penetrate more easily.

They’ve been three years in the planning but the Razor Points have finally landed and take their place in the upper echelons of carp-hook designs. Unsurprisingly, given Max Cottis’ influence, the packaging is eye-catching and significant in size. Inside, the 10 hooks are housed in clips for separation and to keep the hook points pristine, but it does mean that if you want to carry more than 10 hooks of the same pattern you have to have more than one of the bulky boxes. Knowing how loose hooks are supplied by the manufacturers to tackle companies, we’re not entirely convinced of the merits of these boxes, which keep each hook separate, but it doesn’t do any harm, we suppose.

Chod rigs enable you to present bait pretty much anywhere but the hardest part has always been tying them to a precise standard. Well ACE has done all the hard work for you and Terry Hearn has selected all the components that are right for the job. Tied with its top-of-the-range materials, these ready-tied chods can be brought in barbed hook sizes 4, 5, 6, 7 and 8 in both short and long lengths. Tied using the ACE Razor Point SRC hooks, offering superior strength and one of the sharpest points on the market, the rigs incorporate the ACE Pop-Up Pegs, which can easily be screwed into your pop-up hook bait.

This is, quite simply, a monofilament main line that tapers at each end to give a robust casting ‘leader’ without any knots or the need for additional materials. This is ideal for venues where casting is at a premium and especially on those where leaders are banned. There are no knots, so therefore no safety issues, which is what leads to such bans. Because the taper is at both ends, when one end becomes worn or short after regular trimming, it can be reverse-wound onto the spool for continued use.

In more recent years, drop-off inline leads have become very popular and have taken a leading role in my approach. I like to use heavy leads when I can get away with it but it’s just as important that when I’m attached to the carp there’s no lead hindering my contact. I opted to test out these leads when they arrived at the office because they have been specifically designed for use as a safety drop-off lead system. The groove allows either the main line or leader to be situated flush against the lead, which reduces the damage that can often be caused against the lake bed or snags.
