Stalker models are essential for short-range fishing and boat fishing for carp, offering a range of rods perfect for bottom fishing in lakes or rivers. This range includes rods of various lengths, such as 12ft, 10ft, and 9ft, all with a 3lb test curve, alongside a 12ft 4lb test curve spod/marker rod. These rods are designed to handle line between 3lb-8lb with a specific casting weight.
The Preston F1 10FT Mini Carp Rod features a through action, minimizing hook pulls at close range. Constructed with a high modulus blend of 24 and 30 tonne carbon, this rod is reinforced by a strengthening cross warp for exceptional durability.
Float Rods, designed for fishing with a float, are typically longer and more sensitive. The Drennan Vertex Carp Feeder Rods, for instance, are made from high modulus carbon and come with two options of rod tip materials. The Sonik Xtractor Pro Fishing Rod stands out for its reliability and performance. Additionally, the Shimano TX4 Carp Rod, known for its stiff action and high-pressured carbon combined with Biofibre blank material, offers great value for money.
Feeder anglers have a choice of 9ft, 10ft, and 11ft rods, made from high modulus Japanese carbons of 40t, ensuring lightness for all-day use and strength to cope with modern match angling and large fish.
