The 12ft 6ins fast-tapering blank of what is widely regarded as the ultimate marker rod for carp anglers will handle weights up to 5oz, and is widely regarded as one of the best long-range solid bag weapons around. Certainly it is much sought after by those fishing Oxfordshire’s big open-water carp pits.
The blank boasts a 50mm butt guide and a 16mm low-profile tip ring. But the real beauty of this awesome tool, with its solid carbon tip, is its ability to play a big fish without hook-pulls. If you get a chance to handle one, pick it up and give it a waggle – I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
