We’ve got some great news for those of you who were waiting for the Krimp Tools – they’re now out! The first stock was sent out from Korda yesterday so we are expecting them to arrive anytime now! The Krimps and Krimp tool have been designed to allow easy rig construction with stiff materials. In particular, the potential to create extremely neat loops for chod rigs. Not only this, but using Krimps will allow you to create chod rigs that are exactly the same length each and every time. There are two sizes of Krimp available, which have been designed to suit different materials. The smaller one will suit normal stiff materials and stiff coated braids, like Korda’s Hybrid Stiff, and the larger one is perfect for really thick materials (like 30lb plus mono).
The Korda development team went to extreme lengths to make sure that the Krimps and Krimp tools were exactly right, having to overcome various problems along the way. The complexity of getting the tool and Krimps just right has meant that this has been a long development, but we’re sure that it’s been well worth the wait. The Krimp tools should are available to order online now and should be in both our stores in the next couple of days.
