The high quality blanks are outfitted with premium lightweight Seaguide TDG guides and a Fuji DPS reel seat. With every rod in the range coming with 50mm butt rings and an 18mm tip ring. They come available in test curves right up to a heavy duty 4lb edition ideal for big fish continental work.
The Kaizen Platinum 12ft 3.5lb test curve rod is the perfect all-rounder and the best option for carp anglers who want as much versatility as possible from just one set of rods. The lightweight, perfectly balanced, blank can accommodate the most delicate of precision flicks on an intimate venue, all the way through to a 35+ wrap blast on a lake of ‘Gigantica’ proportions. This is ideal model if you want one set of high-end rods that will do it all. Recommended casting weight: 2-4oz.
Danny Fairbrass: “I’ve been using a heavier version during field testing, but it’s nice to go back to the 12ft 3.5lb rods as they are the all-rounders, if you want to fish anywhere from one yard to 140 yards, with pinpoint accuracy, then these are the ones”
