Spod Rods

A good spod rod still needs plenty of action in the blank; especially the tip so can be easily compressed making them more accurate at short to medium range as well as long range. However the action and blank weight required for long distance will normally be different from that required for short to medium ranges as they will require more weight or casting effort to compress the blank properly – essential for accuracy. For this reason we have more than one spod rod in each range, the exception to this is the Hi-'S' Spod Rod where the use of ultra-high modulus 40t Low Resin Carbon makes the tip very responsive but retains a stiffness in the butt to middle section aiding compression and making this tool a true multi-distance spod rod.

As with all our rods we make every effort to build our spod rods on the spine of the blank – ensuring casting accuracy and helping to prevent rod breakages.

 

The Hi-'S' Spod Rod

Built using exactly the same carbons as the Hi-'S' Carp rods there has been no compromise with this Spod rod and the rod will not appreciably soften even with heavy use. Capable of extreme ranges with larger spods, yet equally capable of casting small spods or being used with a Method Blasting pouch or as a Spomb rod this rod stays accurate regardless of the baiting tool used or distance fished. Finished in 1k weave with the 'Perdurable blank finish, 1k Clone seat, all stainless fittings and 'S'-Lite guides and available as standard with either 50mm or 40mm ringing. Can be custom built to suit individual requirement.

All the above can be built with full cork, full EVA or full shrink for a small additional cost.

 

The 'S'-Range Spod Rods

Available in two actions of 4lb and 5lb the special carbon aids accuracy at all ranges and the low resin content means the action of the rod is preserved for much longer despite the continual overloading of the blank caused by large spods. Although both rods are suitable for short, medium and long ranges, we recommend the 4lb for most people and this will cast all the standard size spods. They are also good for extreme ranges with the streamlined rocket type spods. The S.U. model is better suited to big spods like our own Big Bed or if you continually want to fish at 100 yards plus.

These rods are built using the same materials and components as our 'S' range carp rods and can be custom built to requirement.

The Launcher Spod Rods

The MRS (Multi-Range Spod) will suit most people and is capable of casting in excess of 100 yards with spods up to around 6oz whilst the LRS (Long Range Spod) is suited to people who want to push spods serious distances or use very heavy particle filled spods such as our Big Bait Spod. All spod rods have a 1' depth mark up the rod in case of use as a long range marker rod.
