Daiwa Longbow DF Spod Rod
Spodding is one of the most popular baiting tactics for anglers across the carp fishing discipline and it is a tactic that Korda’s Danny Fairbrass has used time after time – to staggering effect. This is why when Daiwa was looking to create a top of the range spod rod it knew that there was only one man who could help. This Longbow DF Spod is one of a collection of Danny Fairbrass designed Daiwa rods and his bespoke touches are evident throughout the rod.
At 12ft and with a high powered 4.5lb test curve, this rod is more than capable of chucking out heavy full loaded spods in excess of 150 yards. This ensures that you’re able to hit all the kinds of features that you’d expect to find on most of the larger carp venues in the country. This rod offers a medium profile, with a high diameter butt configuration. This gives the rod the kind of backbone it needs to be able to take the repetitive casting of heavy spod rockets. The rod also operates with an early loading top – a feature which is complemented by the rods ability to quickly compress for ultimate power building on the cast. This maintains a steady cast pace, even when spods are launched aggressively, and it gives you full control throughout the duration of your cast.
The Fuji DPS reel seat not only looks classy on your Longbow DF Spod Rod but it also ensures that your reel is held firmly in place. Reel choice is as vital as rod choice when you’re looking to cast out heavy spod rockets repeatedly, and there is a fine range of Daiwa reels available – many of which have been designed specifically with spodding in mind. The rod is finished in Danny’s classic style – all black with a silk matt low glare coating. Classy and carpy, this is one spod rod that you won’t want to be without.
