Look for Bank Tackle on the auction site. They'll have something for you, top service from them too.

I use inline lead inserts, the softer rubber type as opposed to the hard plastic ones.

I think korda had a bad first batch of these and now the new ones are a slightly different colour and this issue has stopped i had it at first and now the new ones seem fine other than that the short section of leadcore is the one and its not acting like a leader of any sorts so cant see there being any issue with this

Cox and Rawle Beach Beads.
Just don't glue them, and make sure the round open bead is up the line.
Cheaper than carp tackle brand ones, been around for years, even Ken has recommended them.

Take a look at pb products tungsten downforce range I think they do something that the hook length swivel sits on rather than directly on the line.

Thinking Angler chod running beads or whatever they are actually called. Look like a Bonio biscuit that run on the line. Stops the swivel cutting across the line.

Cheers. The Korda jobbies split very easily, sometimes just from putting them on.

Been using Korda but they split very easily down the seam and I find them abrasive on the line when new.

Prefer a short sleeve for when fishing the lead bolt rig style.

Anyone found anything better? I see Fox do one.

Cheers
