The Korda Distance Casting Swivel lead was originally called the Distance Casting and was superseded several years ago when long-distance caster Alan Partridge convinced Korda his distance shape cast further, which it did. So, the old Zipp style lead fell out of Kordas range for several years until he spent more and more time fishing with Frank Warwick. He loved the old pointed shape and asked if Korda could make him some, which they did. The phone went red hot after that with enquiries about the shape. Frank had obviously told a few mates about the leads and the word quickly spread on the grapevine. The leads went back into the range the following year. In the meantime Korda sponsored the British Angling Championships casting Competition. Whilst visiting the event he got talking to some of the UKs top Tournament Casters concerning lead shape. They all insisted that their Zipp type shape went the furthest. He compared it to Kordas and it was slightly more nose heavy than their longer more slender shape, this made sense because their leads certainly seemed more stable in the air. After seeing this Korda set about redesigned the shape very slightly using the Tournament casters leads as a guide. The 4.5oz and 5oz came first at the request of Frank. He loved them when he saw them and over time Korda has updated the entire range from 1.5oz right up to 5oz to match the tournament casters designs. The name was obvious; Korda had to differentiate from the dumpier Distance Casting. As the name suggests this is the lead to have on when you have to go for maximum distance. Whether that is with a 2oz or a 5oz you will cast this lead further than any other. Couple this Korda Distance Casting Swivel lead with the Korda Lead Clip system, the new Korda Run Rig system, or a helicopter rig for maximum distance.
