To achieve casting distances similar to those capable with extreme range carp rods requires the use of high quality carbons and we manufacture these with exactly the same quality as used in the carp rod range bearing the same look.
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.
As such we feel these actions can be made equally suitable for use as Spod rods as they are for marker work and hence these are called SPM rods (Spod / Marker rods). Due to the added drag created by float and lead we favour rods with more backbone but they still retain responsive tips for casting and feature finding.
Since tips are responsive they load quickly making them perfect for accurate casting with smaller spods and Spombs™ at shorter ranges but powerful for casting larger spods and Spombs™ over greater distances.
All rods feature 12” and 24” depth marks and Fuji DNPS-M20 reel seats, stainless steel collars and butt caps and ‘S’-Lite guides with 50mm starting guide. As with all Free Spirit rods they are built on the spine which helps ensure they cast more accurately and last longer.

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.
