Hard bottoms are the place for these designs; the short condensed shape of this lead coupled with the two flat sides makes it the perfect lead for bolt rigs at short to medium range.
By its very nature the flat pear lead lends itself to being fished on marginal slopes, the sides or back or gravel bars and in rivers. But, in fact it is open of the most effective shapes at short to medium range because it holds so well on the lake bed and offers so much resistance to a moving carp.
Korda have also seen that this type of lead is by far the most like a stone on the lake bed and during the Filming of Underwater Parts 1, 3 and 4 this lead blended in better than any other.
Popular misconception ‘Flat leads sit on silt’. This does not happen, any lead finds its easiest path through the water so instead of fluttering down to the lake bed, a nose heavy flat lead like this will plummet down side on and nose first, making it probably less effective in the silt than say a Swivel Pear lead. Having said that it, is devastating on gravel, and is Danny's first choice in these close range hard-bottomed situations.
