|This 18 lb. common was landed|
with the Fox Warrior on its first
day out. The rod will get the job
done with efficiency!
The rods I purchased from Big Carp Tackle (www.bigcarptackle.com ) were Fox Warrior S rods. These are supposedly entry level rods but there is nothing entry level about them. I bought 3 lb. test curve Warriors in a 12 foot length. The model I bought had a full cork handle and sold for $129. So far I have caught numerous carp from 10-18 lbs with these rods, and I have really been giving them a workout in the last week or so. In short, I will tell you that there rods are high performance, have good looks, and are a top value in rods.
Performance- This is a great casting rod. It has the backbone to cast heavy sinkers loaded with method a good distance. Yet, at the same time the rod has a soft tip with some give that allows you to play a fish and bring it right up into the net with no problem.
Good looks- The rod sports a quality reel seat and quality and durable three footed guides right up to the tip (see photos at left). The rod has an attractive matte black finish. It is a fairly thin but lightweight blank.
Value- My guess is you would have to pay double to find comparable value. The regular rod (no cork) sells for $99 while the cork handle model sells for $129 at Big Carp Tackle.
The final word......HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
