Trakker Products was set up in the early 1990s, creating tackle that are all designed and produced in the UK. Today it is still focussed on producing top quality, innovative shelters, luggage, chairs, beds, and barrows – essentially everything you need with you to make your carp fishing experience comfortable and relaxing. It’s this range of practical products and accessories which have firmly established the brand in the carp fishing industry.
Trakker offers the best of high-performance carbon technology in its range of 10ft Propel rods. This slim, 1k carbon rod has a ground matt finish and is constructed of the finest aircraft grade, high-quality, Japanese Toray Carbon that offers the fast action in a compact size which is perfect for distance casting. The crisp action and fast recovery help deliver maximum tip speed during the cast, keeping you in contact with the fish at all times.
Just 10ft in length, the Trakker Propel makes the ideal rod for a multitude of angling situations, whether you are specialist fishing from the bank in close quarters where casting space is limited, or from your fishing boat where a longer rod can be cumbersome and awkward. Boat fishing benefits from a shorter, more compact rod such as this 10-footer for when lowering rigs onto spots. The length is also great if you’re simply fishing on a smaller venue.
Aside from the performance benefits of this 10-foot length, the Propel rod takes up less room during transit, and thanks to the smaller size, they require less room for storage. It is also much easier to fit into the black cotton carry bag that Trakker supplies with the rod.
The Trakker Propel Rods offer the option of test curves that are both available here, at Angling Direct. The 3.5lb test curve version of the Propel offers a stiffer action which helps anglers with casting to distances of over 100 yards whilst still keeping you in control of the high tense moments during the fight to land that fish into the net. The 3lb TC version is more forgiving, which makes it ideal for playing powerful fish at close range, as it absorbs lunges with ease.
Made to home a wide range of popular reel types, the Propel boasts a Fuji DPS reel seat with black hoods, as well as low-friction Zirconia guides that sports an anti-frap tip ring to give you assured confidence when committing to each and every bold cast. The rod is also cosmetically impressive as all-black guides compliment the black-collared Fuji DPS reel seat,
To keep with the stylish black theme, Trakker can the compact flared butt black as well as the anodised aluminium butt cap. The handle is made to improve grip thanks to full-length shrink-wrap technology.
The styling of the Propel has deliberately been kept minimalistic with discreet understated cosmetics that matched with the impressive performance this small, compact rod can bring should be pleasantly surprising.
