Daiwa Black Widow Spod Rod
Daiwa’s Black Widow range is designed for the angler who wants all the benefits of a top quality Daiwa rod without the price tag. With rods available for all styles of carp fishing, this Spod Rod completes the set nicely and ensures that tarty carpers who like all their tackle to match can have a full roster of Black Widow tackle. A few decades ago if you’d have said to a carp angler that you were going to launch a heavy rocket of bait into the water with your rod they would have laughed in your face. Times have changed a bit since then and spodding is now one of the most popular forms of baiting out there. Enabling you to bait up a swim with incredible accuracy and speed, modern anglers rely on spods the way traditional anglers rely on catapults. To complement the new baiting technique a new rod was born: the spod rod.
With its 4.5lb test curve and its hefty diameter this rod isn’t a slim and elegant as your classic casting machine. However, the fatter and stiffer look enables it to chick weighty spod rockets far out into the water with ease – an impossible feat with a regular carp rod – and this Black Widow Spod Rod can comfortably cast in excess of 80 yards. This makes it the ideal tool for most of the carp fishing venues the UK has to offer. The rod has an incredible early loading ability and can store a huge amount of power, ensuring that it balances well with whatever size spod you choose. As with all Daiwa’s Black Widow rods this Spod Rod it isn’t just the technology on the rod that is outstanding and the rod is finished to perfection too. The graphite DPS reel seat will hold your reel in precision position, even when casting the heaviest spod, and the aluminium oxide line guides keep line friction to an absolute minimum. This isn’t even the mention the metal trim on the low profile grips or the matt low glare finish that ensures this rod looks every bit as stunning as it performs.
