Very surprised

Brought 2 of these rods to take out instead of my more pricey rods and try was very surprised I've been carp fishing for over 20 years and they've proved to be worth more than what I paid have cast with up to 3 ounce leads with a pva bag on with no problems and they handled a 32lb common that fought like mad very easily if your breaking these your doing something wrong they are very strong if slightly heavy but they aren't carbon fibre so what do you expect.

Ron Howard Rod

Okay l bought this rod from Go Outdoors a couple of weeks ago now and have used it a few times and l must admit it has surprised me, l bought this rod as l needed another two piece carp. I have not heard of Ron Howard rod's before. The bend quality is perfect, it has a 2.75lb curve on it but l have took it much more than that. Build quality is fantastic, when you put it in your hands it feels like it should have been there always.If you want one go down to Go Outdoors, you will be pleased.....

Great rods

Purchased 2 of these rods for starting out. Excellent rods, caught plenty of carp up to 19lb with these. Upgrades to Shimano rods but one of the Shimano rods snapped after 3 uses! Back to using these now. Don’t let the tackle tarts look down on you for using these rods. They do the job splendidly. The only criticism I would have is that they are a little bit on the heavy side which is not really a problem to me.

Ron Thompson 12ft Carp Rod

At this price for a Carp rod what can I say, but fantastic value. Also caught some nice sized Carp & Tench with it.

Carp Rod

You do get what you pay for, I agree! However this rod has served me well so far and I've landed a few nice Mirror & Common Carp along with Tench & Perch... No issues with it at all...

Ron Thompson 2.75lb carp rod

Bought two of these, one was fitted with a cut off butt section to make a 7'6" stalking rod. 1st outing I hooked a 20lb pike, that went ballistic when it saw me. 20mins and she was mine, the top section had more than enough grunt.
the full rod has landed a 30lb tope with no prob. took a while though. I have used weights to 3ozs with gentle through casts, would not go bigger.
Don't try to launch a heavy weight to the horizon with it or it will crack up. Its a cheapo glass fibre rod for 12 quid, not a carbon mega buck job. people must be asking to much of them, and when they brake think they are useless. You get what you pay for no more......

Batch Control Issue ?

I bought one of these rods as an addition to my other carp rod that I made myself some 30 years ago from Hardy Walker blanks. The EVO 2 rod snapped in half on my first strike into a fish, just like Mike's from Wigan. The lake that I fish only has carp to 10lb, so it wasn't a monster fish. I was in complete shock as I have never seen anything like it before. And Andy, no I did not trap the rod in the car door ! Took it back and got a refund.

Bought the NGT Carp Stalker and caught 8 carp up to 10lb using it in one session. Now that IS a lovely rod !

Great rods!

I'm a very experienced angler - been fishing 25 years. Have caught loads using one of these rods and it's as good as other rods costing many times the price.

One of the other reviewers says he broke two - must be talking bull, as they're as tough as any other rod I've used (or maybe he trapped the rods in his car boot without noticing?).

Fantastic rods at this price.

Excellent value

Bought a pr of these rods for my 1st carp fishing trip. Pulled out a 7ib a 12 lb and a 19lb with no probs on what i suspect was cheapest kit around the lake.. More than happy with purchase
