Heli-Safe Tubing Kit

Overview of the Innovative Heli-Safe Tubing Kit

Heli-Safe Tubing Kit System stands as an exceptional product, widely embraced by anglers globally. Now, owing to a strategic refinement, an even broader audience can reap its benefits.

Previously, its application in certain waters faced substantial limitations due to bans on leadcore and leaders. Setups not conducive to being fished ‘naked’ on the main line prompted a quest for alternatives.

Despite these challenges, the Heli-Safe remains the ultimate system for those keen on a helicopter-style rig. It encompasses traditional helicopter setup features—anti-tangle properties, long casting capability, and adjustable top bead for hook link placement. However, its significant advantage lies in allowing the lead to be dropped when a fish is hooked, mitigating the risk of snags or weed entanglement—an issue historically associated with helicopter rigs.

In situations where retaining the lead is unnecessary, the Heli-Safe ‘collar’ can be inserted to prevent its release.

Excitingly, Korda has introduced a groundbreaking solution, enabling the Heli-Safe’s compatibility with rig tubing. Unless water regulations explicitly ban helicopter rigs, this setup is now applicable across various European waters.

Previously incompatible with tubing, the Heli-Safe can now seamlessly integrate it. While a ‘naked’ version was feasible before, not everyone favored having the hook link swivel directly on the main line without a leader, compromising anti-tangle qualities.

Heli-Safe Tubing KitThe seemingly straightforward solution to this predicament, the Heli-Safe Tubing Kit, underwent meticulous development to ensure optimal performance, particularly in still dropping the lead.

Korda’s product development team devised a small yet crucial element—a ‘witch’s hat’ plug inside the Heli-Safe, securing the tubing. Paired with an adapted Heli-Safe ‘cap,’ featuring a hard plastic ‘tail,’ this guarantees the tubing remains secure, preserving the system’s original functionality.

Damian Clarke, the innovator behind the idea, shared his experience, highlighting the effectiveness of the ‘witch’s hat’ in securely holding tubing. He emphasized its compatibility with Dark Matter rig tubing, providing a solution to issues encountered with naked helicopter setups.

The Heli-Safe Tubing Kit, available in brown or green packs, contains all necessary components for two complete setups (excluding tubing). Each pack includes two Heli-Safe caps, five witch’s hats, and two new Tungsten Beads, now accessible at all Korda stockists.
