Lads.

I wasn't sure where to post this but I know a bunch of us are checking these out so thought I'd start a thread on its own.

Bit of a long shot this one I'm afraid.

I found the attached pic in a Carpology article. Does anyone recognise the D sleeve/kicker thingy? I think it might be modified/cut down which makes it hard to ID but I've got to ask as the combo of the hook and sleeve looks absolutely perfect.

I already tried the large Korda D Rig Kickers with a size 4 Trig Hammer but it's way off, not the one.

I've had a quick look and the gape seems the same on size 4 and 5 it's just a tiny bit shorter, I will take them to work tonight and try and get some measurements and see what the actual difference is but my initial findings are that If a size 5 fits it wouldn't be a lot worse to use, I can't decide if it's a thinner gauge though so want to check first

Agree, that shot in the Carpology article really grabbed my attention. I'm determined to find the right bits and pieces to replicate it. I really want to do some buoyancy testing.

Just got them in the mail thanks Yonny, I think you are right size 5 is right for the large ones, which will hopefully make the the xl right for the 4's, will be interesting to see if they do cos I think they are going to be a very handy edition to the toolbox 😁

One of the lads who cut his teeth on here works for carpology now .... if you give me the details of the article I can ask him for you via fb. 

I think we've figured it out Phil.

Is it that Joe fella? I really feel for him doing all those vids/reviews saying how everything is so brilliant regardless of how good it is.

Maybe the mod is bending and stretching it slightly to get a large to fit 

the d Section in the article doesn’t seem as big (sticky out from the shank)

This is a size 4 with a large korda kicker on it, I think it looks pretty good, I do also think it may be the same as the one they used for the picture, I scaled the pic the same size as the hook and they lined up closely, the size 5 didn't seem the same as the image,

I have got the eye right up to the bend of the kicker though, maybe with a knot it might not present the same
