Sportex Spinning Rods

Dynamics specialists love

Lightness, speed and tremendous dynamics. That’s what really sets our rods apart.

Casting and fishing is their mission and rhey reach perfection. Fatigue-free casting, direct contact and excellent control is what these super slim blanks perform at its best! Rivers, lakes or even sea – catch a real big one and your SPORTEX will do the job for sure. Look out for the Absolut and Hyperion series in particular.

These new top-class rods are pushing back the boundaries like nothing that has gone before.

absolut

The absolute highlight from SPORTEX!

It took a good two years to develop, but with our revolutionary Helicore blank we have succeeded in setting a new standard in rod construction.

This involves the carbon fibre threads being laid in a matrix mould and then being melded using nano-sized silica particles. This combination of the two materials gives the fibres extraordinary stability and strength.

Thanks to the Helicore blank, absolut rods are incredibly light, fantastically fast, sensitive and extremely tough. Under normal conditions, they are unbreakable – however tough the going gets.

Perfect bait guidance, sensitive bite recognition, rapid lifting, tremendous casting distances and a powerful backbone for even the toughest adversary – these are all features that make this an outstandingly rod.

The extreme lightness makes hours of casting feel like child’s play. The finish of the refined, modern-looking blank can be identified by everyone, even from far away – there’s no doubt it’s a SPORTEX. The top quality SIC guides and the high quality Duplon split-handles round off the image.

Fish with this rod just once, and you’ll never want anything else.

TIBORON Spinning Rods

Elegance matched with sportiness

The new TIBORON rods are based on the SPORTEX Helicore® Blanks, which have always shown the way ahead. By further development of the previous composite on a nano base, we have been able to improve the extraordinary properties of the blanks still further – and set the bar still higher.

Thanks to these new improvements, the TIBORON has a speed and strength that leave other rods standing.

The Helicore® Blank is now even tougher and has incredible loading capacity, comfortably delivering the bait precisely over long distances. The excellent sensitivity of the blank transfers the faintest touch directly into the hand section, while the powerful backbone guarantees full control over the bait and the fish in every situation.

The lightness of the TIBORON means fatigue-free casting over and over again, all day long. In addition, computer-optimised weights located in the handle ensure that the rod is perfectly balanced in the hand.

The finest materials and components went into creating the TIBORON, such as SIC guides from FUJI, new FUJI TVS reel seats, removable FUJI hook eyes and the finest quality duplon material.

The TIBORONs elegant design will draw many an envious look out on the water.

Carat Spin

Return of a classic

Constant requests for a remake of the Carat Spin made it clear the time had arrived for this classic rod to come into its own once again. And in order to meet the high demands made on the rod, the SPORTEX innovative Helicore blank was the answer. Through development of a special epoxy resin, using the finest nano particles, SPORTEX has been able to make the blank not only faster, but a whole lot stronger as well.

Thanks to the unique design of the blank, Carat Spin rods are true lightweights, with very fast and sensitive tips that make for optimum guidance of the bait. The powerful backbone, in conjunction with the fast tip, means reliable striking and all the control you need when it comes to playing the fish.

The excellent loading characteristics of the rod mean long casts with maximum precision no longer pose a challenge. Carat Spin models are fitted with SIC guides, FUJI VSS reel seats, and top-quality cork grips. What more could anyone want?

Here we introduce you to speciality models that have been developed for professionals requiring selected rods for certain situations. These classic rods have become an integral part of our sport. They’ve been favourites amongst top predator anglers for many years, both at sea and on the riverbank. Black Arrow rods have become a legendary series.

Black Arrow

The previous Black Arrow acquired legendary status amongst anglers thanks to its outstanding dynamics and strength.

Fishing fans all around the world credited it with securing the fish of their dreams. But in the pursuit of excellence and driven by the growing appetite amongst anglers for specialised rods, we have developed a completely new Black Arrow series, taking full advantage of the latest advances in technologies and materials along the way.

Thanks to a newly developed high-modulus carbon material, we have been able to make the Black Arrow even faster and more powerful; thanks to refined sensitivity, even the slightest pull on the lure can be felt and, thanks to the extremely fast action, it’s easier than ever to react decisively to a direct strike.

Enormous power reserves, so typical of Sportex rods, provide the strength to bring even hard-fighting fish under control. It goes without saying that the high reset capacity of the blank makes for really long casts.

The fittings for these modern rods include the newly developed FUJI Alconite K-guides, a FUJI VSS reel seat and top quality cork split handle.

The Black Arrow series is available in lengths from 1.8m to 3.15m, with casting weights of 5g-110g, making it ideal for all types of modern spin fishing.

The new Ultra Light models

Opal

Innovative rods for ingenious angling – less material and less weight for increased dynamics

These brand new Opal rods received a lot more than just a face-lift. Using a brand new resin and surface refinement we managed to reduce the rods weight a lot. This weight reduction is supported by the latest development in Fuji reel-seats improving the rods action and sensitivity especially in the handle section.

Contact is much better now and one can perfectly feel and control every movement of the bait. No matter if you’re fishing lakes, currents or tricky environments, these rods perform and deliver. Look at them and fish them – there are things one can not describe!

Opal Drop Shot

These new Dropshot rods have been developed especially for fishing with modern artificial baits. The S-T-S full-carbon tip provides perfect bait guidance and allows fish to suck the bait in with e ase. The powerful backbone rapidly causes the fish to tire, giving full control over even the biggest ‘customers’.

The slimline blank, in conjunction with the new FUJI TVS reel seat (in carbon optic) transfers every bite straight back to the hand section. The FUJI Alconite guides ensure the line glides smoothly and free of friction for really long casts.

At 2.10m and with a 10g casting weight, the shorter model is perfect for fishing from boats or sheet-pile walls, while the models at 2.40m (casting weight 15g) and 2.85m (casting weight 20g) have been conceived with bank fishing in mind.

Opal Jerk

The new two-part, high-performance Jerk rods have been designed especially for big fish. When it came to developing these rods, SPORTEX focused in particular on a slim, lightweight blank that would nevertheless retain a lot of strength.

The fast, hard rod tip allows for lively, controlled strikes with large and smaller jerk baits. The sensitive blank conveys even the most timid bite into the hand section, while the powerful backbone keeps the hook firmly in place when bringing the fish up and playing it in. The optimised balance weights integrated into the grip guarantee tireless casting, and let the rod sit comfortably in the hand.

FUJI Alconite guides and a new carbon-look FUJI Baitcast reel seat round off the sporty design. Jerk rods are available in lengths of 180cm with 70g casting weight and 190cm with 100g casting weight.

Opal VertiCal

The new Opal Vertical models are now available for fixed spool and bait cast reels.

These highly sensitivity rods are ideal for boat fishing with modern plastic baits or, for example, as Fireball rigs, performing perfectly when close to the bottom.

The rods are equipped with a highly sensitive tip, which betray even timid fish, as well as allowing them to easily suck in the bait. The slim but powerful semi-parabolic blank is characterised by its speed and lightness, while the rod’s powerful action makes for confident and firm control over the fish on the hook.

Opal Vertical rods are available in 1.90m with 19g casting weight and in 2.00m with 30g casting weight.

Carboflex turbo

With the new generation of Carboflex rods even more focus was put on the development of the features that make them so special – their lightness, dynamic performance and design.

Thanks to a new type of HM carbon fibre compound, we have succeeded in making the rod even lighter, while still providing it with a powerful backbone, making sure that you have enough power in reserve to tackle bigger fish with ease. Stand-out features of the slim semi-parabolic blank are its tremendous reset capacity and its speed – characteristics which make for long-distant, spot-on casting.

The handle length has been selected so that the rod balances perfectly in your hand for excellent handling throughout your session.

This series of rods covers all aspects of modern spinning fishing, from light jigging to heavy-duty soft bait angling.

Youngstar

The new, modern SPORTEX rod for the up-and-coming generation of spinning enthusiasts.

This rod has been developed especially for children, with all the components adapted especially to the needs of the “little angler”. For easier handling of the rod, the length of the rear part of the handle has been deliberately shortened, and a smaller reel seat incorporated.

To make the blank more insensitive to impact, the HM Carbon material contains a small proportion of glass fibres.

Like other Sportex models, the rod is characterised by lightness and speed. The blank has enough power reserves to bring bigger fish safely to the net, while the tough SIC guides provide for optimum heat dispersion and long casts.

Of course, these rods can also be used by “bigger anglers” for perch, trout and other species.
