We have used our Ultra Low Resin Carbon in 40t & 46t aerospace-grade with 1k woven butt section for the Carp Feeders to ensure the blanks are extremely light yet strong. This same material has been used to produce hollow carbon push in quiver tips which eliminate any ‘dead’ spot in the action caused by the transition from the usual solid carbon or glass tip to the hollow section of the rod. This also allows more feel through the blank and into the hand. The rod will bend progressively from the end of the tip through the joint with a subtle build-up of power giving control when needed but still allowing light lines and hook links to be used.
The blank has our ‘Perdurable’ finish meaning there is no paint or lacquer just the carbon itself and will look good through many years of service. We have used the same Fuji reel seat on the feeders as a feature on the Waggler range to allow more feel through the blank from the hollow tip and the rest of the fittings complement this perfectly. Anti-frap guides are fitted since the design is less prone to the reel line or shock leader catching the butt guide or any intermediate and causing a crack-off. Handle lengths have been set to allow easy change of direction when playing hard fighting carp.
The Carp Feeders are available in lengths from 9’ for the small commercials, through 10’ and 11’ and a heavier 12’ ‘S’ (stepped-up) version for use on the larger reservoirs.
The above can have custom-built handles to suit. Blank and Rod weights can vary slightly – these are for guidelines only.
