  4. Easy transport
    Ideal for fishing situations where compact transport length is important
Product feature
  1. SIZE MATTERS
    Length 12 ft (3.60 m): carp rods between 11 and 13 ft long are more suited to carp fishing from the bank. Rods of this length tend to be more powerful for reaching long range swims. The transport length of the rod is 1.25 m WEIGHT: 355 g REEL SEAT: the metal reel seat is fixed. Reels are secured on the rod by a screw locking ring
  2. A BEAUTIFULLY FLEXIBLE ROD
    The flexibility of semi-parabolic action rods such as the Extrem 5 Telescopic makes for easier casting. Good compromise between flexibility (playing the fish) and achievable casting distance. The semi-parabolic action lets the rod bend more in the middle
  3. LENGTH AND RING ATTACHMENT
    Guides: butt 40mm then 25mm, 16mm, 12mm. The distinguishing features of SEAGUIDE rings are that they are lightweight and highly resistant to braid. You can use braid on your reels with no fear of damaging your rings. This is a prime criterion of choice if you use braid regularly. The rings are attached via three legs. These 3-leg guides are stronger for greater resistance to heavy duty casting.
  4. TEST CURVE
    The test curve of your rod is a gauge of two different but complementary characteristics: - The ability to resist a tensile force such as when playing a fish. -The rod's ability to cast a weight over a certain distance. The 3 lb test curve will enable you to cast up to 100 g beyond 100m and master big fish with ease.
  5. PRESS-FIT TYPE
    Inverted press-fit: The lower (bigger) section has a slimmer cylindrical piece added to the upper end. This spigot press-fits into the end of the upper section. The spigot joint improves the through action of the rod. CAUTION! Before casting, check that the joints are properly assembled. A badly inserted spigot is the main cause of rod breakage.
  6. CHOOSING THE RIGHT ROD FOR YOUR HEIGHT
    It is often said that the longer the carp rod, the further you can cast. But it is mainly your size (and your centre of gravity) which determines how far you cast. For example, if you are less than 1.70m tall, you will find a 13 foot rod less comfortable than a 12 foot rod. It will shift your centre of gravity towards that upper part of you body. Which means it will take more effort to use and cast.
  7. MAINTENANCE
    Everyday maintenance is simple: just clean your rods with warm soapy water, and then rinse and dry them carefully, paying special attention to the joints. This step is very important to make sure you remove any sand which can damage your rods

  14. TEST BEFORE BUYING
    Did you know? In all Decathlon stores you can request a free 7 day loan of a product to try it out, with no obligation to buy.
  15. CAUTION!
    Before casting, check that the joints are properly assembled. A badly inserted spigot is the main cause of rod breakage.
Product testing
  1. Composition
    Structure : 60.0% Carbon fibre (CF), 40.0% Glass - Fibre (FG)
  2. Storage advice
    Ensure that your rod is dry before storing. To extend the life of your rods, remember to remove the lead before you stow the rod in its cover
  3. Product restrictions
    do not use near power lines or during thunderstorms.
  4. Product catchline
    This telescopic rod is easy to transport and can be used for accurately casting your rig to a spot that is far away. The medium action reduces the risk of unhooking.
  5. Lab tested
    The strength of the rod has been tested using rigs 50% heavier than the rated load. However, for optimal performance, it is essential to use rigs suited to the rod's casting weight.
