Carp Fishing Rods
We often get asked, ‘what is the best carp rod?’ There is no right and wrong answer to this question, although you do get what you pay for in the carp fishing world. For this reason, we stock a large selection of carp rods to suit every angler’s needs and budget. We also have some big-name items like Nash, Shimano and Wychwood rods. So whether you are just starting out and looking for a relatively inexpensive set up or you are a hard-core angler, we have a rod that will suit your needs.
Carp fishing is quickly becoming the most popular type of fishing and although it is possible to use a pole for carp fishing it is a lot more common to use a rod and reel combo. One of the main reasons carp fishing rods are more popular is due to the casting potential. Carp fishing rods 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, biting alarms & carp beds - but having a good quality carp rod is the most important tackle you can have for catching that monster fish.
Carp Rods Variety
Here is Fishing Republic, 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 range of carp fishing rods - 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.
