Carp fishing is quickly becoming the most popular type of fishing, and the fishing industry has responded by pumping out a plethora of rods and reels specifically for the job. One of the main reasons carp fishing rods are more popular is due to the casting potential; A good carp rod will allow you to cast out more than four or five times further than using a pole. There is a lot of carp fishing equipment available including bivvies, bite alarms & carp beds - but a good quality carp rod is the most important tackle you can have for catching that monster fish.
Carp Rod Variety
Here at Fishing Republic, we employ many enthusiastic carp fishermen that only offer carp fishing rods that we know work. We also have categories for all budgets with carp fishing rods starting as low as £25.
Carp fishing rods are available in 2 main lengths; 12ft and 13 ft. Commonly the difference between the sizes are the size of their butt rings which can range between 40mm to 50mm. Generally the larger butt rings will cause the less friction on a line as you are casting which will allow you to achieve greater casting distances.
Finally, when you are browsing our carp rod collection, it may be worth considering a marker or spod rod which can be used within a three rod setup. Spod rods offer the benefit of having a higher test curve than the standard carp rods, so these are designed for casting out heavy spods. Marker rods slightly differ - these are used to place a marker for when you are casting into open water.
