Thinking Anglers | Terminal Range
RRP: From £1.99 | www.thinkinganglers.com
As you will all no doubt have seen, the chaps at TA have given the brand a major overhaul and, as of last month, their rebranded and expanded terminal tackle range has been back on the shelves of all the leading tackle shops nationwide.
While you will, no doubt, be familiar with the majority of the line-up, they have added a few key items right from the start, with the full range, including hooks, new hooklink materials, tools and some fresh additions to their luggage, set for a major launch early in 2019.
For now, there are three more swivels to choose from, with ring, quick link and ring quick links available in both size 8 and 11. These along with the original seven that made up the range are all now finished in their brand new, ‘industry first’ super-slick finish. This dark grey PTFE coating gives each and every one unrivalled movement.
The keenly awaited leadcore is now on the shelves too. Its ‘olive camo’ colouration features a disruptive pattern that changes every 10cm along its length, making it suitable for all manner of lakebeds. It carries a 45lb breaking strain and is available on 10m spools, or in ready-tied, 1 metre lengths with all the necessary beads and swivels for both chod and helicopter set-ups.
To complete the lead-core range, there are now three beads that seamlessly cover all eventualities: The safety top bead, which comes supplied with silicone tubing to provide a safe set-up when fishing a helicopter rig, plus two static beads – a 5mm green rubber and a 5mm tungsten bead, both with a much tighter bore than was previously available.
There are also some dainty little 10mm cork balls, perfect for those that prefer to fish smaller pop-ups, or balanced hookbaits.
Finally, the marker float kit is back by popular demand, although this has had an overhaul too; it now features upgraded components and a large rubber bead in place of the old-style cork ball.
