Carp can be big, powerful fish, and catching them requires skill, patience, and strong, reliable tackle. The Advanta fishing range of carp rods perfectly encapsulates the Advanta ethos by ensuring that you’re able to target a carp using a range of tactics without breaking the bank.
All of the Advanta carp rods are built on high quality blanks, although you will find that the carbon content in the carp rod blank changes depending on which type of rod you go for. Whether you are looking for a 24T lightweight blank option which boasts an ultra-slim finish and will look great with your existing carp fishing setup or a 30T carbon blank with slightly stiffer action but a slender finish and staggering good looks, both blank options have impressive power to diameter ratios, ensuring accurate casting to impressive distances with ease. Some of the rods in the range even boast an additional extra-tough carbon-weave finish that allows you to exercise control over even the most aggressive of species when landing a new UK carp record.
The carp rod blanks come in several different test curve options, too. These range from anything as light as 2.5lbs right the way up to 3.25lbs, allowing you to target fish on the full carp fishing spectrum. The ringing pattern on the Advanta fishing rods changes depending on the test curve that the carp fishing rod offers. For lower-powered rods with smaller test curves, the rods have been fitted with a 40mm butt ring. This is ideal for all your mid-distance, intermediate, and short-range work when accuracy is more important than the length of your cast. For the angler who wants to be able to cast further out into the water, the rods with a slightly larger test curve have been fitted with a 50mm butt ring. This reduces the amount of friction on your line, allowing it to fly along with the rings of your rod with increased speed.
When it comes to carp fishing rods, the fixtures on the rods are just as important as the rod blank itself. The Advanta carp rods are all fitted with 18mm DPS reel seats that have been precision engineered to keep your carp fishing reel in the perfect position throughout your time on the bank. The guides on the Advanta carp rods are LTS in style and incredibly lightweight, to maintain the overall low-weight of the rod itself, offering minimal abrasion resistance.
All of the carp fishing rods in the range have been fitted with neat little extras, many of which you’d usually expect to see on rods of double the price. This includes line clips, which are completely lined friendly and designed to allow you to fish with accuracy throughout your time on the bank. All of the rods have been finished with laser-etched butt caps, too, giving the rods a high quality and bespoke finish.
The Advanta team create the ideal carp rods for the novice carp angler who wants to be confident in their setup from the off, as well as for the dedicated angler who wants to revamp their setup.
