Harrison Torrix Fishing Rod
Harrison is one of the finest UK rod designers and manufacturers and its series of Torrix rods really are known as the benchmark for the modern carp angler. This is the classic of the series; the original Torrix which has set the standard for other carp rods to meet. In many ways, the Harrison Torrix is the classic 12ft performance rod and whether you’re looking to invest in your first top quality carp rod or you’re simply looking to take your carp fishing to the next level then this is the perfect rod for you. What’s more, since Harrison designs and manufactures all its rods right here in the UK (something most UK rod companies can’t say), you can be confident that quality is built in to every aspect of the rod and Harrison has full control over even the smallest elements in the production process.
The Harrison Torrix is manufactured from mixed material, which offers a balance between compression tension and release in order to give you a faultless action. High modulus carbon fibre ensures that the blank offers the famous rigidity with which the brand is associated, ensuring that your can tackle even the hardest fighting fish with confidence. This is supported by a 1k carbon weave on the butt section. Whilst this looks great, the carbon weave offers much more the simply a cosmetic enhancement. It also adds additional resilience where you need it the most, providing additional strength and toughness in the final crucial moments as you land your catch. You’ll also find a little of this 1k weave at the joint of the tip section, to provide a little extra strength, but there is no need for the 1k weave to reach all the way to the tip due to its tough carbon scrim ribcage.
The Harrison Torrix is 12ft in length, which is generally considered ideal for a wide range of scenarios. This means you can enjoy the very best of the UK’s carp waters with confidence that this rod is going to be more than up to the challenge. It is also available in two different test curves. The lightest of these is a 3lb test, which is ideal for the angler who is looking to target double figure carp on a range of venues. The heavier test curve option is a 3.25lb. This is ideal for the very largest of the UK’s carp and it can be used in even snaggy scenarios. Both curve options are available with a 40mm and a 50mm butt ring. If you’re an angler who likes to target carp from huge distances then the 50mm option is perfect for you. This reduces friction on the line, allowing it to sail along the rod and out to the farthest features. The smaller 40mm option is perfect for your average angling scenario. Both of these ring options are Kigan 3D, as are the rest of the guides along the blank, so you can be confident that they won’t let you down.
The Harrison Torrix boasts an 18mm Fuji DPS reel seat, to hold your carp reel in the perfect potion, with stainless steel collars. The butt cap is also in stainless steel. The handle is abbreviated and features a slim 5 inch EVA grip, to ensure that you can keep a strong hold on the rod when it counts. The rod is not only beautifully balanced but it is also ultra slim and the blank boasts a lifelong finish with discrete graphics. This is one rod that looks every bit as good as its performance and you’ll be turning heads on the bank for all the right reasons when you wield a Harrison Torrix rod.
