This very flexible rod makes for easier casting thanks to the parabolic action
2.5 lb test curve lets you make medium range casts with weights up to 85 g
100% fibreglass rod lets you land medium-sized fish
Size 12 feet (3.60 m): The length of the carp rods between 11 and 13 FEET are more suited to carp fishing from the bank.
Rods of this length tend to be more powerful for reaching long range swims.
The dismantled length of the rod is 1.88 m. Number of sections: 2
Weights: 530 g
Fixed metal reel holder. Reels are secured on the rod by a screw locking ring.
A WONDERFULLY FLEXIBLE ROD
The flexibility of semi-parabolic action rods such as the Extrem 1 makes for easier casting thanks to their flexibility. Good compromise between flexibility (playing the fish) and achievable casting distance.
The semi-parabolic action lets the rod bend more in the middle.
CAREFUL!: Before casting, check that the joints are properly assembled. A badly inserted spigot is the main cause of rod breakage.
SIZE AND GUIDES OF THE RINGS
The rings are attached via three legs. These 3-leg guides are stronger for greater resistance to heavy duty casting.
Ring size: Rings starting 40 mm, 30 mm, 20 mm, 16 mm, 12 mm, and 12 mm in tip
The test curve of your rod is a gauge of two different but complementary characteristics:
- The ability to resist a tension force similar to wrestling with a fish.
- The rod's ability to cast a weight over a certain distance.
The 2.5 lb test curve will enable you to cast up to 85 g between 90 m and 100 m and master medium sized fish with ease. This makes it perfect for beginner lake anglers.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT ROD FOR YOUR HEIGHT
It is often said that the longer the carp rod, the further you can cast.
But it is mainly your size (and your centre of gravity) that determines how far you cast.
For example, if you are under 5'7" tall, you will find a 13 foot rod less comfortable than a 12 foot rod. It will shift your centre of gravity towards that upper part of your body.
Which means it will take more effort to use
YOUR ROD BLANK
The term blank refers to the main part of a fishing rod, made of carbon or fibreglass, for example. For some of our rods, we use the term HM carbon (High Modulus). For simplicity, the module expressed in tons would be the ratio between rigidity and weight. The higher the module, the lighter and more resistant the blank is, similar to the force exerted by a fish when reeling it in.
