Quality range of ESP carpgear, terminal tackle and luggage. ESP Carpgear was launched in early 1999 and the initials literally stand for Extra Sensory Perception – or ‘sixth sense’. Prior to the brand launch, various names were being kicked around and the ESP name was inspired by an off-the-cuff remark made about Terry Hearn, the brand’s longtime consultant. It was suggested that he caught so many big, difficult to catch carp that he must have some sort of sixth sense or extra sensory perception – so the name stuck and ESP was born! Initially, the brand specialised in terminal tackle but has since branched out into top quality made to specification rods, clothing and luggage. Amongst the first range of terminal tackle were two hook patterns, the T-6 and the G-4, which took the carp world by storm. They were the first carp hooks to feature ultra-fine needle points which were so much sharper than anything previously available. These were designed in conjunction with Terry Hearn who recognised that an ultra-sharp hook was the most important component when it came to targeting some of the most highly pressured and rig shy big carp in the country. The introduction of the Cryogen hook range in 2016 set a new standard in carp hooks. Their unique twin tempering process resulted in hooks with unrivalled strength and point durability, up to 25% stronger than previous ESP hooks, without increasing wire gauge. Every product in the ESP range is made to specification, nothing is brought ‘off the shelf’. In-house, CAD engineers work alongside our angling experts in designing and perfecting new products....
