Retractable rods just got ‘even better’

Top carp brand, Fox International, maintains that retractable rods just got ‘even better’ with the two additions to its Explorer range, the Explorer Ti’s.

Described as the ‘ultimate’ in retractable rods, they hit the stores earlier this month.

  • How do they compare with other rods in the Explorer line-up? They sit at the top of the range and are lighter, thinner and stronger than their counterparts. The retractable butt section allows the angler to fish at two lengths, either 8ft or 10ft. Casts further than you can imagine with a retractable.
  • Where is best to fish them? Relatively large carp venues, but because of their versatility, also small to medium sized waters, canals and rivers.
  • Give me some tech. Built on a high modulus 2K carbon blank, American Tackle Ti-Forged Nanolite Titanium Anti-Frap guides, 18mm reel seat and full Fuji Japanese shrink wrap handle.
  • What are the product options? Explorer Ti 8ft to 10ft 3lb (£299.99 RRP) and Explorer Ti 8ft to 10ft 3,5lb (£309.98 RRP).
