Free Spirit have produced shorter carp rods for a number of years and have sold many for stalking and boat carp fishing. In more recent times these shorter rods have become very popular for fishing smaller waters and for their convenience not to mention the fun they provide playing hard fighting carp on shorter carbon.
The Hi-‘S’ Compact carp rods are available with abbreviated handles as standard with the Clone 1k seat and stainless steel collars but as with all Hi-‘S’ rods these can be made to your individual requirement. We offer a number of 10’ models, starting at the 2¾lb, suitable for smaller waters and stalking; the 10’ 3lb where a rod with more backbone is required; the 3¼lb which is suitable for heavier work such as boat carping or hit and hold stalking and is capable of longer casts and the 3½lb which is becoming very popular for snaggy waters such as Rainbow or fishing rivers.
We now offer a new 11’ 3½lb test curve to give a more powerful option for snag fishing and longer casting. This rod is popular for the larger European rivers and also for laying back leads behind the gripper leads on large snaggy waters.
Built from the very same Low Resin 40t Japanese Carbon used on the rest of the Hi-‘S’ rods and with full 1k weave and ‘Perdurable’ blank finish these rods are extremely light and well balanced, yet strong and with very responsive tips to aid casting with light set-ups.
As standard these are built with abbreviated handles and stainless steel fittings. Any of the this range can be built as Black Editions or customised with alternative guides, seats and handles.
