Product feature
  1. A TOP TIP ACTION ROD
    Known as "fast action". The tip action of X'trem-9 390 allows it to bend through the last third of its length to the tip. The rod's action is reduced, making the main body of these rods quite stiff. This means that the rod's action is reduced, ie it bends less when tension is applied by fish. The advantage is that the stiffness enables long distance casting.
  2. SIZE
    Size 3.90 m: The length of the carp rods between 11 and 13 FEET are more suited to carp fishing from the bank. Rods of this length tend to be more powerful for reaching long range swims. The dismantled length of the rod is 2.01 m. No. of sections: 2 Weights: 460 g
  3. Size and guides of the rings
    SEAGUIDE starting rings 50 mm, 30 mm, 20 mm, 16 mm, 12 mm, and 12 mm in tip. Light and braid resistant. The rings are attached via three legs. These 3-leg guides are stronger for greater resistance to heavy duty casting.
  4. POWER
    The test curve of your rod is a gauge of two different but complementary characteristics: - The ability to resist a tension force similar to wrestling with a fish. -The rod's ability to cast a weight over a certain distance. The 3.75 lbs power enables you to cast up to 130g beyond 150 m and reel in fish of all sizes with ease.
  5. THE LITTLE EXTRA
    1. The tip of the MOON CONCEPT lights up in contact with UV rays. It is recommended to go with the MOON CONCEPT headlamp 2. The metal reel holder is adjustable. It allows balancing the assembly to be able to realise castings under the best conditions.
  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 1.70 m 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.
  7. YOUR ROD BLANK
    The term blank refers to the main part of a fishing rod, made of carbon or fibreglass, for example. For some of our rods we use the term HM carbon (High Modulus). For simplicity, the module expressed in tons would be the ratio between rigidity and weight. The higher the module, the lighter and more resistant the blank is, similar to the force exerted by a fish when reeling it in.
  8. The perfect balance for casting far (Part 1)
    To cast far involves two aspects: the material and the technique. Regarding material, the winning combination is: 1. A rod with power between 3.25 and 3.75 lbs 2. Reel: Choosing a reel with a long distance spool is essential to enable the line to release and gain additional meters. .
  9. The perfect balance for casting far (Part 1)(Part 2)
    3. The choice between monofilament or braid is entirely a question of personal preference. Whichever you choose, you will need a small diameter such as 28/100 for maximum casting distance. 4. When allowed you can put 3 m of leader of 30 hundredth in braid. As there is no elasticity in the braid, all the speed during the movement come from the rod.
  10. MAINTAINING YOUR RODS
    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 that can damage your rods
  11. CAUTION!
    Before casting, check that the joints are properly assembled. A poorly inserted spigot is the main cause of rod breakage. Casting with a dry leader increases the risk of breaking your line. To avoid this problem you can moisten the body of the line before casting.
  12. DAMAGE AND BREAKAGE INSURANCE
    THIS IS FOR YOU, WHATEVER YOUR FISHING TECHNIQUE! Insurance against fishing equipment damage has been designed specifically for your DECATHLON fishing gear. DECATHLON Sports Insurance provides new replacement cover for accidentally damaged equipment covered by the insurance. - purchase value (inc.

  13. 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
  14. IN THE EVENT OF BREAKAGE? CAN THE ROD BE REPAIRED?
    After sales service is available at the workshop of your DECATHLON store. Depending on the model, tips are available in the customer support centre.
  15. YOUR ROD BLANK
    The term "blank" refers to the main part of a fishing rod, which is often made of carbon or fibreglass. For some of our rods we use the term HM carbon (High Modulus). Put simply, the modulus (expressed in tonnes) is the weight to stiffness ratio of the carbon. The higher the modulus, the lighter the blank and the more resistant it is to constraints such as the force exerted by a fish during the fight.
  16. GETTING THE BALANCE RIGHT FOR LONG RANGE CASTING (Part 1)
    To be able to cast a long way you need to consider two aspects: equipment and technique. As far as equipment is concerned, the winning combination is: 1. A rod with a test curve of 3.25 to 3.75 lbs 2.. Reel: it is essential to choose a reel with a long distance spool which releases the line more easily, thus gaining those extra metres. The Adonis 7000, available in your fishing section, is the ideal candidate.
  17. GETTING THE BALANCE RIGHT FOR LONG RANGE CASTING (Part 2)
    3. The choice between monofilament or braid is entirely a question of personal preference. Whichever you choose, you will need a small diameter such as 28/100 for maximum casting distance. 4. Where it is allowed, you should have a 3 m leader of 30/100 braid. As braid has no stretch, all the energy of the cast will be transmitted via the rod, not taken up by the line.
  18. CAUTION!
    Before casting, check that the joints are properly assembled. A badly inserted spigot is the main cause of rod breakage. Casting with the last few metres of your line dry increases the risk of breakage. To prevent this happening you should wet your main line before casting.
