Despite its pencil-thin profile this new two-piece Middy 3G Micro Muscle waggler rod has been designed to handle carp to double figures.
The sleek high modulus carbon blank looks a million dollars in a refined gunmetal grey with silver tipped dark grey whippings.
It boasts a full cork handle with a Loc-tite woven carp reel fitting, nine lightweight single-legged original SiC guides on the top section, and two double-legged guides on the butt.
The looks and build quality are quite unsurpassed, yet this rod can be all yours for a penny under a ton. So what about the performance?
We've accompanied Mark Sawyer to the banks of Hinderclay Lakes in Suffolk to put the rod through its paces, and to watch the video showing how the rod performs, click the image below.
