Fox have built a reputation for reliable, high-quality tackle, regardless of your chosen niche; match, carp or predator, when you purchase tackle emblazoned with the iconic orange Fox logo you can be sure its top end gear.
Fox EOS Barbel Specialist Float Rod is no different. Designed with barbel fishing in mind, the 13ft rod with a test curve of 1.50lb is ideal when trotting for barbel on a stretch of river, but equally adept at float fishing on a stillwater. The rod is a two-piece construction and has an optimal line rating of 6-10lb.
The EOS Barbel Specialist rod sports a powerful through action, thanks in part to its low resin carbon construction, which is also lightweight, an added benefit of a 13ft rod which can sometimes be cumbersome. However, 13ft rods do offer superior line pickup and greater control whilst fighting a bruising barbel, when fishing at distance.
The blank, which is finished in a gloss black and is subtly branded with a gold ‘EOS’ logo, is lined with Fox Slik guides and a top-quality DPS style reel seat featuring gunsmoke cappings, which is sure to minimise any lateral movement experienced whilst playing a fish. Either side of the reel seat is a high-grade cork handle giving the rod a retro look and feel.
If you’re looking for a multi-use 13ft rod to fish at distance on both rivers and stillwaters the Fox EOS Barbel Specialist Float Rod is the perfect match for your fishing.
