8lb Barbel easy, 14 August 2016
By SteveWolvo (Wolverhampton)
Caught lots of Barbel on the River Severn Bridgenorth in july and aug using this Rod i only fish with 1 Rod . Point is that i seen other fishermen with 2 rods and not cheap rods either they had all the high tech gear and they blanked. I was there using my £9.99 Rod and caught 5 Barbel in 1 session. Nice Rod you can really give them some stick to get them out the snags using this Rod i defo recommend if your on a budget. 10/10

Bought two of these Barbel rods one for myself and one for the wife. Very light weight with a soft forgiving action. My Rod is combined with the hardwear freerunner deluxe 60 Reel & prologic xlnt camo line, 16lb My wife's Rod combined with the okuma carbonite cbf 155 & prologic xlnt camo line, 15lb . Either Reel works well & gives Excellent Smooth Casting. The rods can handle Mirror Carp well as I caught a 9lb6oz & my wife caught a 6lb10oz Yet to get a Barbel on the rods yet but Handles Big fish well Great Rods & Value for Money.
Ron Thompson 11ft 1.5lb Rod, 21 July 2015
By leadcorelee (Market Rasen)
purchased this rod for my 9 year old daughter, its a great rod for carp and tench and she has caught well over 100 carp on this rod up to around 15lb, it casts well and has a forgiving through action the only fault as a few have said is the handle is a bit to long, a great rod for the price, I purchased another so she has a matching pair.
A great mistake, 19 July 2015
By old man river (Birmingham)
My son took this out today mistaking this for an 11ft feeder rod. He used my rod and I used his We had a great time. It casts brilliantly and for its price puts rods ten times more expensive to shame.
We had a dozen large carp and bream in quick succession and the rod easily coped with no trouble at all. It has a sweet action and bends nicely to absorb the knocks and runs.
A super rod. I'm going to get another one for myself.
