Sportex Carp Rods

Throwing machines for almost limitless distances

Pure elegance, the very latest in blank technology, and the ultimate in quality fittings. This is what sets our carp rods apart.

Whether you’re after a tricky character well off in the distance or a right fat toughie closer in, or even stalking the pair of them, we have the rod you need. The semi-parabolic action of the blanks, made of the very finest carbon fibre materials, makes for the perfect deployment of power when the hard work – and the fun – really begins.

These are rods developed for people looking for something special.

Purista

Optimum strength distribution, full power!

Let‘s cast! The Purista is another advanced development in casting machines from SPORTEX. This series uses a dynamic blank made from the best high modulus carbon fibre. It has fantastic tensile strength and unbeatable properties such as perfect loading behavior, rapid reset capacity and a powerful backbone, which combine to land the lead and bait right on target even at long distances.

With these rods, casting is nothing but fun! And thanks to the optimum force distribution over the entire blank, there is always enough power available to guide even the biggest catches safely to the net.

The lacquered 1K mesh surface finish, in combination with the slim FUJI TVS reel seat, gives the rod that special purist look. The Purista also comes with top quality, slim SIC guides (all with a 50 first guide), and a shrink-split handle. Purista rods are 12 foot (2.5lb, 2.75lb, 3lb) and 13 foot (3.75lb).

ONE – a truly unique new carp rod

The ONE developed using our revolutionary new Helicore-Blank technology – just like the highly successful Absolut and Hyperion rod series. This revolutionary technology is based on nano-sized spheres of silica so small, they are able to flow between individual filaments of carbon fibre, giving the composite extra strength.

Thanks to the Helicore blank, ONE rods are extremely light and incredibly fast yet still tougher than any other carp rod. The highly efficient energy) in the Helicon blank enables you to cast amazing distances, while the unbelievable speed means the blank casts without any vibration and comes to rest immediately. This characteristic means that long, precise casting is much easier.

The semi-parabolic action of the powerful blank ensures the perfect strike at long distances, and the fish is always under control during the fight. ONE rods have a very elaborate and sophisticated finish, which is emphasised by the modern black FUJI Alconite K-guides and bespoke black coated FUJI double-hood reel seat. Thanks to this special reel seat, fine adjustments can be made to the position of the reel on the rod.

Brillant Carp V2

The slim power package!

The Brillant Carp set the standards in quality and reliability, so when we came to create this new version we focused on making the rod even faster and even more powerful. To achieve this, we have used an entirely new high-modulus carbon material. During manufacture, the carbon fibres are compressed by a special process, which gives them even greater tensile strength.

Thanks to the use of this high quality carbon material, less epoxy resin is needed, and that gives the rod more speed, more flexibility, and, above all, lightness. The advantages are obvious: an extremely thin and stable blank; long, precise casts; and a powerful action when the fish is being played.

The rods are fitted with top quality original FUJI SIC long-casting K-guides, which reliably prevent the line from getting caught around the guides during casting. The Brillant V2 also has a specially milled reel seat made of aluminium, with FUJI components.

FBC Carp

A new era begins!

The extremely successful and popular ‘old’ FBC series of rods have caught thousands of carp all over the world, but now it’s time to give them a complete upgrade. Certainly a rod like this carries obligations, and that’s why the new FBC Carp rods are so impressive with their elegant finish and enormous action, which they draw from our pioneering new Helicore blank on a nano base.

When the blank is manufactured, a special resin is used, which is mixed with minute nanoparticles. These tiny particles bond the carbon fibres almost entirely free of any gaps, which leads to an almost 30% higher loading capacity of the blank.

This blank technology has previously only been used among SPORTEX carp rods in the ONE Series. The perfect loading properties of the lightweight blank allow for long, precise casts, which means that even spots at long distances can be reached with minimal effort.

As well as this, the Helicore blank has extremely good damping properties, which help to reduce loss of fishover the last few metres of play. The progressive power transmission of the semi-parabolic blank gives the rod more than enough power to keep the fish away from obstacles and cause it to tire rapidly when being played.

All FBC models are provided with a very light but stable reel seat made of aluminium, top-quality SIC guides and slim Duplon handles. Available in 12ft at 2.75lbs, 12ft6ins at 3/3.25lbs and 13ft at 3.5lbs.

FBC Stalker

The FBC Stalker rods have the same features as the FBC Carp Series. But they have been specially adapted with regard to length and action to suit ‘stalking’ techniques or fishing for carp from boats.

Due to the shortness of the rods, handling in the boat when securing the bait and also when playing the fish is perceptibly better. And for casting from the bank, where long rods do not come into consideration, FBC Stalker rods really come into their own. The rods are available in lengths of 10ft at 3lbs and 11ft at 2.75lbs.

Morion ST & Morion ST Stalker

Morion ST

One of the most popular carp rods in our range has had a total makeover.
Like its predecessor, the new Morion is built on a beautiful, slim and lightning fast blank. The tried and trusted SPORTEX HT-Cross Winding technology also makes the blank even tougher and gives it a really powerful action.

Thanks to the excellent casting and damping characteristics of this newly-developed blank, long casts, right where you want them, are no problem. And the chances of fish getting away when being played are minimal. The new Morion Carp is the best weapon for any body of water.

Morion ST Stalker

The Morion Stalker is built on the same blank as the Morion Carp, but has a slim cork handle instead of Duplon. The rod lengths have been adjusted so that you can fish with no trouble at all in restricted spaces or from a boat – and with the best possible results. Despite being short, the Morion Stalker allows for excellent casting and deploys its full power to rapidly tire a fighting carp.

Specimen NXT

The fame of the Specimen Carp series stretches back decades

This completely upgraded successor is a gem of a rod thanks to its sophisticated design, top-quality fittings and improved carbon blank technology.

The new “HPC” process has enabled the carbon fibre material to be designed to take even greater loads and be even more flexible. This means the slim, progressive blank has enormous power reserves – perfect for tiring out fish quickly when the fighting gets going. The rods bear the load effortlessly and have a high reset capacity, guaranteeing long casts with absolute precision.

For fans of classic carp rods, the NXT is available with a cork handle. There is also a Duplon split handle option and for those who prefer short rods, two excellent 10ft options.

The NXT series comes fitted with modern SIC K-guides, FUJI reel seat, and high-quality Duplon or cork handle (NXT Classic model).

The two 10ft models, at 3lbs and 3.5lbs, are perfectly suited for river and boat fishing.

SPORTEX Carp Rods

Catapult Carp

The focus in the development of the Catapult Carp Series was placed firmly on longer casting distances. The high-modulus carbon material used now makes the new blank even slimmer and faster. During casting, the improved loading characteristics of the blank help to catapult the rig over even greater distances.

The rods naturally have all the strength in the backbone needed to tire the fish rapidly, and sufficient damping characteristics to reduce loss of fish. They are fitted with a FUJI reel seat and high quality SIC guides, as well as very fine, slim and durable ‘Shrink’ Duplon handles on the hand section.

All in all, this is the perfect series of rods when you’re fishing a particular spot at long distances. The rods are available in 12ft at 2.75lbs / 3lbs / 3.25lbs / 3.75lbs and in 13ft at 3.75lbs.

Catapult Spod

To keep the fish in the swim, it’s important to feed them regularly. And to enable this to be done at substantial distances from the bank, we have developed our Spod rods. To achieve the most precise and long-distance casts without major effort, the rods have excellent loading properties and are fitted with large high quality SIC guides (50mm butt guide).

This means that the line can glide through the guides when casting without any significant friction. The Catapult Spod models come in 13ft lengths, at 5.5lbs and 8lbs. The Catapult Spod at 8lbs has been particularly designed to deliver substantial quantities of feed at long distances (such as with the large Spomb). During casting tests with conventional feed rockets, this rod achieved casting distances of more than 150 metres.

Catapult Marker

This rod is exactly what you need to help learn about the riverbed or lake bed. This is a real advantage, especially on waters where boats are not permitted. The large SIC guide arrangement (50mm butt guide) and the optimised loading behaviour of the rod allow for long, precise casts with the sensor weight and marker.

The blank, with its extreme sensitivity, conveys information about the contours and condition of the bottom. A sliding rubber ring allows for an individual measurement length to be adjusted, so as to be able to determine the depth of the water more easily.

Catapult Stalker

The Catapult Stalker rods have the same blank and fittings as our Catapult Carp series, but they have been specially designed for use when space is restricted. For this reason the length and the action of the rods have been adapted so as to enhance the excellent damping properties of the blank even further. This ensures that the blank can be relied upon every time to absorb the effects of the carp fighting back, which can be extremely stressful, especially over short distances. These rods, in lengths 10ft and 11ft, at 3lbs, are absolutely unbeatable when it comes to landing a hooked fish.

CATAPULT BOAT

With a length of only 9.2ft. at 3 lbs or 3.5lbs, these rods are ideally suited for carp fishing from a boat. When it comes to casting rigs or getting a hooked fish into the landing net, the advantages of the shorter length soon become very obvious – and very welcome. Thanks to the semi-parabolic action of the blank, there is always enough power in the backbone of the rod to tire even the strongest fish, and do it fast. The Catapult Boat series also has a FUJI DPS reel seat, top quality SIC guides, and a continuous ‘Shrink’ Duplon handle on the handle.

Competition Carp

COMPETITION CARP NT

This series is for carp anglers on a budget, but has the power and first-class fittings to rank it alongside more expensive options. The newly developed blank with its semi-parabolic action is designed to produce effortlessly long casts. The powerful backbone means that the rod can tackle even those big trophy carp, rapidly tiring them during the fight. The Competition Carp NT, with its attractive, modern design, comes with divided Duplon grips, SIC guides and an ergonomic DPS reel seat.

COMPETITION CARP NT – 3-pieces

The three-piece Competition Carp NT is ideal for space-saving transportation. Whether by bike or by car, there’s always room for this short-sectioned rod.

COMPETITION CARP NT Stalker

The Stalker versions of the Competition Carp NT are intended for use from boats and are also ideal for carp anglers on the move – anyone who likes changing their spot in a hurry. The blank has excellent damping properties to cushion the fight that carp put up when close to the bank, preventing the fish from breaking away.

COMPETITION CARP NT Spod

Here is the perfect rod for casting feed with a spod bomb to reach ‘hot spots’ at longer distances. The large SIC guide arrangement (type 50 first guide and 16 tip guide) ensure that the line glides smoothly through the guides when casting. A 20mm DPS reel seat keeps even big reels safe and secure.
