These Spod rods are made from the same Low Resin 36t Carbon with a 3k weave throughout like the ‘S’ Range of rods and with the ‘Perdurable’ blank finish.
Using such a high quality carbon makes the rod lighter to use and aids accuracy at all ranges and the low resin content means the action is preserved for much longer despite the continual overloading of the blank caused by the use of large spods and Spombs.
As with all Free Spirit rods they are built on the spine which helps ensure they cast more accurately and last longer.
Finished with a Clone reel seat in 3k, stainless steel collars and butt cap and shrink rubber / EVA butt grip and ‘S’-Lite guides, these rods come in two models of 12’ with test curves of 4lb and 5lb.
The ‘S’ Range Spod Rod being rated at 4lb is suitable for casting small to medium sized spods and the like and also the long range bait rocket. The lighter test curves makes this rod especially useful when fishing at shorter ranges – the rod can still be adequately compressed to maintain accuracy and also for casting on a lower trajectory to punch a spod under over-hanging tree canopies.
The ‘S’ Range Spod Rod SU is the big brother of these two being rated at 5lb. This is the rod when big spods and the like are required to put a mass of bait out quickly. It also suits fishing at extreme ranges and is very powerful in the butt to middle section making it less suitable for distances under 60 yards.

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.
These can be built to individual requirements.
