This clever product is the brainchild of Guru-backed matchman Paul Holland. He’d made initial prototypes from standard method feeder, building up retaining sides made from the plastic packet that the feeders come in! His aim was to produce a feeder that had the compactness of a pellet feeder, but with the aerodynamics of a method feeder.
Plenty of holes in the frame of the feeder ensure that the bait that you pack onto it can be sucked off the feeder almost as soon as the feeder hits the deck, allowing you to convert bites quickly. It’s extremely quick to load too, which allows you to spend more time ‘on fish’ when you’re in the zone. To load, all you do is thumb a little dampened pellet into the base of the feeder, pop your hook bait on top and press a little more pellet over the top, slightly less firmly.
The raised sides that Paul designed protects the bait on impact, when you’re having to cast a long way, ensuring that the bait gets to the bottom as you’d like it to! The critical hook bait placement means that your bait is available and presented perfectly from the moment your feeder touches down.
It`s available in three sizes: mini (24g), small (24g and 36g) and large (36g and 48g).
GURU is very much a unique brand, offering innovative, cutting-edge products that appeal to a rapidly widening cross-section of anglers.
Much of the product range has been conceived through close consultation with match experts Steve Ringer and Guru’s new brand manager, Adam Rooney. The new products for 2012 are very much still targeted at the commercial match and pleasure angler. However, with top all-rounders like Dean Macey and Shaun Hodges now signed up, you can see just how highly regarded the brand has become among the specimen angling fraternity.
