Reviewed by dmgoblin - 15th Aug, 2018 floating for carp A good rod for the price. Probably ideal if you're throwing a piece of lead 50 yds and hoping for the best. However I cant give it 5 stars for light float fishing, its heavy and in my opinion the handle is 6 or 7 inches too short and I found it uncomfortable. The 10 foot version of this rod is a better buy and easily handles double figure carp. I have 2 loaded with 5 and 7 lb lines.
