Length 9 ft (2.70 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 1.40 m. No. of sections: 2
WEIGHTS: 325 g
A TOP TIP ACTION ROD
Known as "fast action". The tip action of the Extrem-9 270 allows it to bend through the last third of its length to the tip.
The rod's action is reduced, making the main body of these rods quite stiff.
This means that the rod's action is reduced, ie it bends less when tension is applied by fish. The advantage is that the stiffness enables long distance casting
SEAGUIDE starting rings 40 mm, 30 mm, 20 mm, 16 mm, 12 mm, and 12 mm in tip. The distinguishing features of SEAGUIDE rings are that they are lightweight and highly resistant to braid. 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.
RING GUIDES: The rings are attached via three legs. These 3-leg guides are stronger for greater resistance to heavy duty casting.
FULL POWER AHEAD
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 3 lbs test curve will enable you to cast up to 100 g beyond 100m and master big fish with ease.
THE LITTLE EXTRA
1. INNOVATION: Improved visibility at night. The tip of the MOON CONCEPT lights up in contact with UV rays. It is recommended to go with the MOON CONCEPT headlamp
2. REEL HOLDER: The metal reel holder is adjustable. It allows balancing the assembly to be able to realiSe castings under the best conditions
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.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT ROD FOR YOUR HEIGHT
It is often said that the longer the carp rod, the further you can cast.
But it is mainly your size (and your centre of gravity) which determines how far you cast.
For example, if you are less than 1.70m tall, you will find a 13 foot rod less comfortable than a 12 foot rod. It will shift your centre of gravity towards that upper part of you body.
Which means it will take more effort to use
YOUR ROD BLANK
The term blank refers to the main part of a fishing rod, made of carbon or fibreglass, for example. For some of our rods we use the term HM carbon (High Modulus). For simplicity, the module expressed in tons would be the ratio between rigidity and weight. The higher the module, the lighter and more resistant the blank is, similar to the force exerted by a fish when reeling it in.
Everyday maintenance is simple: just clean your rods with warm soapy water, and then rinse and dry them carefully, paying special attention to the joints.
This step is very important to make sure you remove any sand which can damage your rods.
