Extra Long version of 'old faithful', the Braided Hair Needle. Possibly the safest baiting needle to use, these needles have become an iconic piece of carp angling hardware. Extra long needle allows use with double baits or super sized single hookbaits and hard baits. Alignment Cup enables holes to be punched centrally each time, easily and effectively. 'Braid friendly' ballpoint crochet type needle retracts through the bait into the handle leaving perfect sized hair loops every time. Fine diameter needle means it will not split small and delicate hookbaits. Rounded crochet point does not easily pierce skin. Retractable design for added safety and to prevent damage to needle. Ergonomic Easi Grip handle with Posi Pip Thumb button for use in the dark, click-lock in closed position and lanyard hole for keyring attachment. Stainless Steel needle. Betalight slot at bottom. Manufactured in the UK. The original and best - beware of imitations! Available with either Green or Black handle. Length=18.7cm (with handle), 6.7cm (needle only).
