Rated 5 out of 5 by AnotherCarpFisherman Very good rod Excelent rod, balanced, strong, decent price, good not just for euro-carping style. It would be perfect if it would have SIC guides, at least the top three. October 15, 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Barry714 Mad Dragon 2.75 test curve I received my rod as a Christmas gift, and have only had one chance to use it thus far. As this is my first 12-foot carp rod, I can not compare it to other, much more expensive models on the market. However, I believe it is a very good rod for the price, and in my opinion, it performed at least as well as, or better than, the 9-foot light saltwater rods I have used for carp in the past. Used with a medium-heavy rear-drag freshwater spinning reel, with 12-lb mono, it cast extremely well. Because the carp did not cooperate on the day I tried it out, I can't speak on the subject of the rod's fish-fighting capability. It did handle the two small catfish I caught (under 2 lbs) quite easily, and was not at fault when a larger fish came unhooked after a brief fight (in fact, I was thoroughly enjoying that fight when the hook came free -- probably because the fish was barely lip-hooked from the start). I would recommend this rod to my carp-fishing friends, especially if they are looking for a good rod with a well-known brand name, at a reasonable price. The only negative aspect of this rod is its fairly thin handle -- which is common with most other carp rods of this style. I have large hands, and the "feel" of the rod did take some getting used to. I might decide to modify it myself later, by adding some foam or cork wrapping. January 8, 2012
