Stalking rods have always been popular but now many see the benefit of shorter rods for mainstream carping, especially when travelling light, moving swims or taking advantage of short, opportunistic sessions around work. These rods are also suitable for boat work, either when rowing out baits and landing fish or when fishing from the boat as is popular on European waters such as Chantecoq. The 10’ versions are especially suited to this.
A complex manufacturing process integrates Japanese 40t and 30t carbons with resin content below 25%. Wrapping alternately at 90 degrees and zero degrees for added strength, then further wrapping with 3mm bi-axis carbon tape at 45 degrees produces extremely strong yet ultra-light and slim blanks. From 2020 these feature a matt blank finish.
The CTX compact carp rods are built to the same exacting standards as the longer rods with options of abbreviated, full cork and full EVA. Both 10’ models are available with 30mm or 40mm butt guides.

Blank and rod weights may vary slightly from those quoted. We use stainless steel collars and butt caps for durability which will add a little to the rod’s overall weight but being on the handle should not adversely affect its balance.
