Length 10 ft (3 m). Lengths of carp rods at 9 and 10 FEET are used for carp fishing, roaming fishing, or to make it more compact in a quick session.
The dismantled length of the rod is 1.55 m
WEIGHT 300 gr
REEL HOLDER: The metal reel holder is fixed. Reels are secured on the rod by a screw locking ring
A BEAUTIFULLY FLEXIBLE ROD
The flexibility of semi-parabolic action rods such as the Extrem 5 300 makes for easier casting. Good compromise between flexibility (playing the fish) and achievable casting distance.
The semi-parabolic action lets the rod bend more in the middle
SIZE AND GUIDES OF THE RINGS
SEAGUIDE rings 30 mm, 25 mm, 20 mm,16 mm, 12 mm and 12 mm. Fuji rings have the particularity of being lightweight and braid resistant. You can use braid on your reels with no fear of damaging your rings. This is a prime criterion of choice if you use braid regularly.
The rings are attached via three legs. These 3-leg guides are stronger for greater resistance to heavy duty casting.
Inverted press-fit: the lower (bigger) section has a slimmer cylindrical piece added to the upper end. This spigot press-fits into the end of the upper section. The spigot joint improves the through action of the rod.
Caution: Before casting, check that the joints are properly assembled. A badly inserted spigot is the main cause of rod breakage.
The test curve of your rod is a gauge of two different but complementary characteristics:
- The ability to resist a tension force similar to wrestling with a fish.
-The rod's ability to cast a weight over a certain distance.
The 2.75 lbs test curve will enable you to cast up to 95 g beyond 100m and master big fish with ease.
