New Rods That Offer The Perfect Curve

Choosing the right materials and components for a carp rod is a difficult task. To find the balance between action and tip speed recovery, whilst also offering a rod that looks the part, is no mean feat. But with the new range of Traction carp rods, we here at Avid Carp believe we’re offering the best rod money can buy for under £100.

The carbon chosen for the Traction rods has a development title we call Reactive. Why? Because the carbon itself reacts so quickly to any forces placed upon it.

So what does that mean in real terms? We spoke to Avid Brand Manager Mat Woods for more details:

“Firstly, Reactive carbon means the rod is more easily compressed,” Mat explains. “During testing, the lads in our team with more average casting capabilities were able to cast further, without having to change their casting style.

“Reactive carbon also means the blank is able to recover from it’s bent position really quickly. Once the lead is launched, the rod buckles and wobbles longer than you might think, which reduces your distance as the line doesn’t have a smooth journey out of the rod rings. With Reactive carbon, the tip is recovering quicker than most other rods with this style of action.”

 

Mat’s eager to point out, however, that distance wasn’t the primary aim with the Traction range.

“I like rods with a Progressive action. Basically, rods that get progressively less stiff. This has two major benefits when combined with our Reactive carbon,” adds Mat. “The first is that the rod never really ‘locks up’ and the carbon can always react to the lunges of a fish quickly. That means fewer hook pulls.

“Secondly, and something that cannot be underestimated, is that the rod is able to handle various tasks. Most distance rods are quite tippy, with butts that can only be compressed by anglers with powerful casting techniques. That makes them difficult to use at shorter distances – after all, carp aren’t always 150yds out in the lake, are they?

“With a Traction rod – thanks to the progressive action – you have got accuracy and control whatever distance you decide to fish at. Whether casting a bare lead or a solid bag, you have a rod that’s comfortable handling both tasks. That’s why we describe the Traction range as having ‘The Perfect Curve’. The carbon technology makes the rods behave in the perfect way.”

The action also has other benefits. Like not always needing a shockleader for big chucks. On venues where leaders are banned and 15lb minimums are in place, I'd take a set of 3.5lb Traction rods without even thinking about it!"

One thing Mat emphasises is the superb quality and finish of the Traction rods. There have been very few compromises.

All the rods come with an 18 month guarantee card, which you just simply fill out and send back to Avid.
