Guru Rig Case Hooklength storage system
Thu 10 October 13
With rig storage systems designed for the match and coarse angler popping up on the market all the time from many of the county’s leading manufacturers. Finding one that is both innovative and function to your personal angling requirements can be a very daunting task. One option that is due for release in early December is the new RIG CASE Hook Length Storage system from Essex based terminal tackle giants GURU. The innovative Rig Case is the latest release to roll off the Guru production line and it’s absolutely feature and function packed. Read on to find out what this latest hook length storage system has to offer you as an angler as the UKMA team take a first look!
The GURU Brand Manager Adam Rooney and head consultant Steve Ringer both have used existing rig cases and felt that they weren’t quite up to scratch, so the Guru design team set about designing one from scratch and here is the final result. Firstly, the team attacked the problem of boosting the capacity of the case, without creating something that was too big and cumbersome. They simply increased the length of the retention pegs, and made the case double-sided, which allows the Guru Rig Case to hold up to 150 rigs. It’s been designed for the rigs that most anglers use the most, including method feeder, pellet feeder and pole rigs.
The case features a unique magnetic fastening system, which ensures that your carefully tied rigs are protected when in transit. In fact, the case has been designed to be totally water resistant by including a rubber seal on in the top lip of the case that is inserted to receive the internal raised lip of the lower section when closed. This creates a water tight seal, which will keep the British weather at bay while you’re out on the bank, fully protecting your precious rigs inside. The Rig Case is finished in GURU colours; black on the outside and orange on the inside and the whole thing is coated with a soft-touch over-mould, to produce finished product that will be easy to handle even on the coldest and wettest of days.
The first impressive feature the UKMA team liked about the GURU RIG CASE Hook Length Storage system was because of the four magnets (one mounted in each corner) there is no need for fiddly plastic latching systems that in many cases prove to be unreliable, especially in the cold when they have an uncanny habit of breaking off. All you have is two staggered small plastic strip (one on the base and one on the lid) simply place your thumbs on each and release the magnets and your in. The two layered storage available, will reduce the amount of rig cases you have to carry around, thus reducing terminal tackle weight, which is always a bonus.
Another bonus is having 12 self adhesive labels supplied as standard, to enable you to clearly display what each individual rig is made up from for easy and instant rig selection. The GURU RIG CASE Hook Length Storage system has enough room to store 150 rigs of variable lengths including 3, 4, 5 and 6 inches. In fact, you can pretty much carry all your pre-made rigs for pole, waggler and method feeder work in one box, now how handy is that! On first impressions the UKMA team are very impressed with the storage capacity and practical design of this RIG CASE from GURU. It should be hitting the shops in early December 2013, and it will carry the very reasonable retail price of £8.99 per RIG CASE.
Foot Note – As per usual, we’ll be putting this latest rig storage solution from GURU through its paces over the coming weeks to see how it handle being abused and thrown around out on the bank and in all weather. So to find out how well it performs in an angling environment, watch this space!
