The expectations of today's anglers and the maximum utilization of the equipment require durable tackles, which are suitable to specific situations. Fulfilling this, a great series of fishing rods has been designed within the Carp Expert brand, which, typical of CXP, offers outstanding quality at an affordable price. This rod family is called MAX.
The rods of the MAX 2 series are made of IM8 carbon.
Why is IM8 unusual? Most carp rods are made of IM10 carbon, and there is no other fishing rod in the Carp Expert series in the carp category that would be made of IM8, so we can gain an interesting new experience by trying it out.
The rods have a casting weight of 3.5 lbs and, of course, are equipped with a long, split handle, which is essential for long casts. Of course, they have 50 size guides with three-point-support to maximize casting distance!
Their appearance is characterised by a simple black blank with white inscriptions and silver banding at the guides, giving the series a really imposing, yet restrained look!
The reel seat is a well-proven bottom thread version.
Of course, it is advisable to choose a long-cast reel with a large and shallow spool, and in order to achieve the maximum casting distance you need a line around size 0.25 mm with conically thickening hooklink.
The appearance of IM8 carbon is a big step in the development of fishing rods. IM8 carbon rods are light and slim, but they offer enough reserve for secure catching. They can be used in recreational fishing and in fishing tournaments as well.
A practical duplon handle with understated cosmetics. Its length is just perfect for accurate casting. It definitely matches even the highest expectations.
The rod has a classical reel seat with a screw locking nut. This type has been used for decades due to its simplicity and reliable structure. You can fix your reel to the rod with two hoods and a screw.
Nowadays, there is a growing need for effective disctance casting tackle. A distance casting rod has a reduced number of guides, whose diameter is wider than the average. Thanks to these unique features, the line runs smoothly through the guides. This allows you to achieve long distances.
