Biodegradable products launched for 2020!

Written by News Editor on . Posted in Articles, New Products

We are excited to announce that this year we have started adding a biodegradable additive to our baits and rig gear items, which will make them truly biodegradable. The items will be introduced over the coming months and  will be identified by a round sticker on the front of the packaging.  

We feel that as the leaders in imitation carp/coarse baits, it’s very important for us to send out a strong message by making our baits biodegradable. Trials determined that the baits looked and felt exactly the same as previous, and catch reports also confirmed their effectiveness has not altered in any way. Despite the added cost of the additive we have not increased the RRP of our products, as we feel the benefits to the environment, and the positive message we will be sending out, far outweigh any financial gain. For us perhaps the best news, is knowing that our waste from the production process that goes to landfill, will now break down within a few years, rather than taking hundreds of years.  

The additive speeds up the biodegrading process by up to 200 times. Parts containing it have been proven to biodegrade in landfill, compost, fresh and also salt water. In landfill, for example, most products which contain it will biodegrade in less than 3 years.

Biodegradable means the total breakdown of a product (by icroorganisms) to something found in nature. This product is scientifically proven to break plastic products down completely by increasing the level of hydrophilicity in the plastic and returning it to nature in a short period of time. But don’t worry about them breaking down in your tackle box. The product will only start to biodegrade if lost to the environment, or sent to landfill.

Enterprise Tackle Quick spikes with Frank Warwick

The new Enterprise Tackle Quick Spikes make the process of tying superb carp rigs like the 360 rig,, the multi-rig and the hinged stiff rig incredibly easy.
Each spike incorporates a micro ring swivel for the quick mounting of baits, eliminating the need for floss. They also feature retaining barbs, which hold the bait so securely that even big casts can be made without the fear of the hookbait coming off.
Top carper Frank Warwick played a key role in the product’s development. In this short film he explains how to use them.
