The XRS-2K4 8ft Carp Power Wand is the latest creation from North-West based Tri-Cast, and Angling Times quoted that this was no doubt the best rod that they saw last year.
A picture is said to be worth a thousand words, but in this instance it simply doesnt do this rod justice. In fact, what you are looking at here is the most fun that you can have with 8ft of carbon!!! Check out the picture of the rod in use!
The sublime new XRS-2K4 8ft Carp Power Wand has been specifically designed to handle any short-range legering tactic when tackling a commercial fishery. It will cast anything from the lightest of lead set-ups to small flat Method feeders (around 20gms) and has every property you could ever wish to find in a carp wand. The two-sectioned rod can easily be transported ready assembled and is supplied complete with two perfectly designed push-over quiver tips that are rated at 1oz (yellow whippings) and 1.5oz (purple whippings).
You can also buy as an extra, a super-fine 0.5oz tip (beige whippings). The rod uses Tri-Casts legendary XRS (Xtra Reinforced System) to create a blank that is pencil-thin and made from high modulus carbon. This produces one of the sweetest through action playing curves that you are ever likely to see, and is forgivingly soft in the upper sections.
The Power Wand will prove the perfect tool for winter F1 fishing but, equally important, the blank retains enough linear torque through the mid-to-butt area to subdue the hardest-fighting fish without overloading the rod, which can lead to a twisting of the guides as the blank starts to rotate, especially when applying power from above.
- Tri-Cast has got this absolutely spot on with this rod, and it shows no signs whatsoever of blank twist. Supplied with 2 tips
