C-301 £169.99, C-101 £59.99
New carp rods have been a little thin on the ground so far this trade show season, so the new Wychwood C-101 and C-301 are especially welcome.
The top-end C-301 comes in three popular test curves, all with progressive actions. Having had a quick cast with the souped-up 3.25lb version, I can vouch for its distance-casting potential. The C-101, with 50mm butt guides, looks to be a great all-rounder, delivering performance at an affordable price.
