Thatís a good idea mate, I thought that maybe the fox leads may be only ones that fit the boom section but will make myself a boom like youíve said.

Thanks for the replies guys.

I've bought one of each so I can use on 2 rods and see how I go with them.

I did see what Scott888 is saying about not all leads will fit onto the Fox boom. First lead I tried wouldn't so I've made up another boom using the top hockey stick from the Fox boom and some 25lb Korda Boom with a snap swivel at the bottom.

All leads will fit now so hopefully it will work well.

Can only talk of the Korda one as I have not used any others. Have had no issues with it and still going strong. Simple to use and have confidence in it.

On the Korda one there is a small opaque square on the float to stick a pva nugget on. Trap your hook and bait under this and no tangle problems, provided you stop the lead and feel it down.

Thereís not much difference IMO, fox has a cool feature where you can use bit of pva foam and loop hook length so doesnít tangle, only downside is their boom doesnít fit many leads.

Adjustable Zig Float Kits - Fox or Korda

Which do you favour and have you come across any problems with either?
