New improved versions of the best-selling originals, the SK3XTR carp rods have even better looks, performance and features than the originals. Matt-grey carbon blanks have a parabolic action which loads progressively to the tip with 10% extra power in the butt section. They are real all-rounders which are equally as comfortable casting long distances with loaded PVA bags as they are being used at short range for 'in the margin' approaches. Upgraded cosmetics and new size options including 12ft 3.25lb and 50mm options will further increase their appeal. Latest generation multi-modulus, low resin carbon blanks. Progressive action with extra power in the butt, forgiving tip for playing fish. Double leg SIC guides throughout for extra performance, strength and durability. Custom Sonik 18mm DPS reel seat - fits all big pit reels. Gunmetal concave front and rear collars. 'Line-friendly' custom Sonik line clip. Full, contoured Japanese shrink wrap handle - full cork version available on 12ft 2.75lb model. Available in 40 & 50mm butt ring versions for 3lb, 3.25lb and 3.5lb versions.
