Hey guys & girls
I need your advice! I’d like to get 2 new rods and reels for Carp fishing. Could someone give me a bit of help? <!-- s8-) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_cool.gif" alt="8-)" title="Cool" /><!-- s8-) -->

Moved to the right section mate.

You wont go wrong with some Greys or Chub rods pal. Got Prodigy SX myself and love them. Know Adam loves the Outcasts. Lifetime guarantee to.

Checkbook and pen......again!!!!

Agreed with Adam mate lads in tackle shop would be able to give you all the pointers you need. You need to think about where you are fishing and the distance you want to be casting as its no good needing to fish over 100 yards and having a rod and reel set-up that you wont be able to chuck further than 80. Theres so many on the market take your time choosing and dont jump in and get the first ones that come along.
Dont dismiss any Nash rods as they arent bad either. <!-- s:idea: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_idea.gif" alt=":idea:" title="Idea" /><!-- s:idea: -->

High test curves don't necessarily mean great distances, my advice would be find the optimum test curve you can compress. which with most anglers starting out distance casting would be 2.75lb to 3lb tc
get used to casting accurately with them and compressing them to there max and then move up the tc if necessary, but i would bet that a 2.75lb rod would suite most venues in the UK.

Of course as with everything some people are born good casters but most of us are not lol
and you will find casting with a lower test curve rod that you can compress fully will out cast any high tc rod that you can't.

e.g I have a 2.5lb rod that i can cast small bags and 2oz zip leads in excess of 100yds with not to much of a problem

Hope this helps Regards Dave.

Have a look at Sonik rods, I've got SK 3's, and they are really nice, got a good back bone of pva work, but a nice action for playing fish...
