Using the very same high quality Japanese Low Resin 40t Carbon and with full 1k weave, the H-‘S’ Marker rods exactly match the build of the carp rods. As we use the same material the blanks are kept as slim and as light as possible which makes them cast the required distances to fish at extreme ranges possible with rods such as the Hi-‘S’ 200 and 220’s.
The end of the tip is deliberately made less responsive so will transmit more feel. It also helps to prevent the lead being bounced over key features.
Having a very low resin content means there is no perceptible softening of the blanks – very important to preserve the performance of these rods since they are cast repeatedly with heavy loads.
As with all Free Spirit rods they are built on the spine which helps ensure they cast more accurately and last longer.
Since Free Spirit was the first company to produce a dedicated Marker rod over 20 years ago now we have a lot of experience in making these rods meet the exacting requirements of our customers.
The Hi-‘S’ Marker Rods feature the Clone reel seat in 1k and ‘S’-Lite guides, stainless steel collars and butt caps as standard and are available in 12’ & 13’ and carry 1’ and 2’ depth marks. The effective test curve is around 3¾lb.
All these rods are Hand Built in the UK and can be customised and will shortly be available as Black Editions.

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.
