I can honestly say that these rods are the best I have ever used; they cast like a dream with an accuracy that I have never before experienced. When playing fish I can feel every lunge, due to the tremendous elasticity in the tip section, but I’m never in a situation where I feel I am not in total control, due to the reserves of power in the butt section.


Carp Fishing Rods

Hiram Garton (pictured left with a pristine 36lb Common) is one of the most knowledgable and respected carp anglers in the South West of England. As a Carbotec design consultant, Hiram brings over 17 years of experience that spans the dramatic evolution of carp tackle from its embryonic days to the latest hi-tec developments.

The challenge was to design and build a range of high modulus med/fast action carp rods that would be light and superbly balanced enough to perform to a specification far in excess of their price range. The result is a product that has top anglers taking a keen interest and has the press talking.

I was amazed that such a lightweight rod could cast in excess of 170yds.
