Good Rod for the price I was used to using 12 foot long rods for carp when in the U.K. though they are hard to find in the U.S. I had been making do with an 8'6" spinning rod ,but it was hard to fish with a float (bobber)over that depth. Enter the Mad Dragon-I was extremely pleased and it made Float fishing a pleasure. It seems well put together and has handled the carp well(I use the 2.75Lb test curve). The grips like another reviewer mentioned take a little getting used to, but the rods spend a lot of time on the rests and so it isn't a problem. The extra length certainly helps steer fish away from snags and the rod has power where you need it. I'm certainly happy and will be purchasing a second soon. September 26, 2013
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
very happy i purchased one mad dragon two years ago, bought another one as backup. Extremely happy with my purchase, i have handled several large carp with this rod and enjoyed every minute!!! December 30, 2013
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

A: 
The test curve means the amount of weight needed to bend the tip 90 degrees, so a 3lb test curve means it takes 3lbs of weight /pressure. The higher the test curve the stiffer the rod usually.

A: 
The "test curve" on carp rods provides an indication of the stiffness of the rod, relative to other, similar style rods. Rods with a lower test curve are more flexible, and those with a higher test curve are stiffer. Stiffer rods, of course, can be used to cast heavier weights, and usually for greater distance, than more flexible rods. Stiffer rods (with a higher test curve) are also less forgiving when fighting a fish in close quarters, sometimes resulting in lost fish because of hook pulls. So there is a trade-off to consider when buying these rods. If casting distance - or if heavy weights -- is a priority, then go with a rod with a higher test curve. Otherwise, you should consider a mid-range or even a lower test curve rod.

A: 
Test curve is the weight needed to draw or bend the tip until it becomes 180degrees opposite the main rod ... so you can guage its strength and possible casting ability...
