New 30-Plus V3 Specimen Carp Rod

Making the right choice when buying fishing rods for catching big carp can be a minefield because there simply are just so many available.

This new rod, from 30-Plus, is just one rod that is more than capable of catching, controlling and landing big carp.

Steve Broad, from UK Carp magazine, took delivery of a pair to take them to the bankside and put them through their paces.

He visited a vast, well-established lake just north of Peterborough, used a simple specialist rig coupled with a tiny PVA bag with pellets.

As you'll see by watching the video, Steve found this reasonably priced carp fishing rod more than adequate for the size of fish he caught.
