If you are fishing for carp or other fish, whether in freshwater or saltwater. Then this rod will work well. It is really strong as it is made from carbon fibre and it is also light. It comes apart into seven pieces which means that it is easy to store and transport. It has a non-slip handle that is made from comfortable EVA that will not shrink. The guide rings have smooth ceramic inside them so the line flows through smoothly and they are also triangularly fixed which means that they are firm and stable and this also enhances the sensitivity. The reel sear is made from corrosion-resistant carbon which provides a solid base suitable for all-weather use.
