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.

One

A truly unique new carp rod developed using our revolutionary new Helicore-Blank technology powered by 3M Powerlux© Composite – 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 Helicore 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. The 12ft models are fitted with a #40 first guide, and the 13ft model with a #50 first guide. This is probably the best carp rod we have ever made, but don’t just take our word for it, use it and find out for yourself!

The new Brilliant Carp

A leader on the world market

There is nothing that cannot be improved. That’s even true about our BRILLANT CARP rods, which have been hugely successful for years. Cutting entirely free from the past, we have redesigned this rod completely, taking into account every request from our development team. Thanks to our new type of high-modular carbon fibres, the new blank has been optimised in diameter, lightness, deployment of power and action. With a diameter of only 12 mm at the handle, this rod is the slimmest on the world market, and all with a weight of less than 300 grammes. Our HT-Cross-Winding technology has made all this possible. Compare your rods with the new BRILLANT CARP, and you’ll soon see what progress really can be made in modern rod construction.
Design formats: length 12‘, 13‘
Casting weights: 2.75, 3, 3.5 lb

Carp Z

Sportiness and professionalism in CARBON FIBRE and Zylon

With this carp rod we are following entirely new paths to the future of rod construction. For the first time, as with our CARAT Z, we were able to make our innovative material combination of CARBON FIBRE and ZYLON into a reality in the form of a carp rod. This is one of the slimmest carp rods anywhere on the market; and all this with a lightness, agility and strength which could only be achieved by the innovative material mix in combination with our advanced developments in HT-Cross-Winding technology, which is being used for the first time in this series of rods. Why not try out the advantages of this high-tech carp rod for yourself – you’ll soon be persuaded too. “Unbreakable” under normal conditions, this rod combines all the elements which go to make a professional carp rod: super-slim blank; extreme lightness; fast, controlled action; and a progressive deployment of power, which ends every twist with success. And, of course, the rod fittings meet the high demands made upon every SPORTEX product. Extra large original SIC rings, # 50 start ring, original Fuji reel seat, sectioned Duplon handle with metal closure cap.
For every occasion the ideal rod: 12‘ from 2.50 lb to 3 lb and 13‘ 3.75 lb.

■ Longer casts thanks to a five-fold blank structure
■ Perceptibly increased accuracy thanks to Helical Core Cross-Winding
■ Improved speed and optimised reset behaviour thanks to a HM carbon fibre core and zylon

Our designers are delighted with this new rod.

With this aspiration in mind, we developed a rod series that wrote history.

Specimen NXT

The fame of the Specimen Carp series stretches back decades,

and 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.

Catapult

Catapult Carp

The new Catapult Carp, made of high-moduluscarbon, has a semi-parabolic action and high reset capacity. This makes for powerful long casts that are right on target. It features top quality fittings such as SIC quides, Fuji reel seat and high quality Duplon handle. The tip is soft enough to provide sufficient shock absorbtion if the fish suddenly takes off, which prevents it from slitting free.An excellent carp rod with an outstanding price-to-performance ratio.

Catapult Spod 8 lbs.

The ultimate casting machine! This rod was specially developed to cast bait across extreme distances. Despite its enormous test curve, it boasts a very slim blank, optimum loading performance and it rapidly returns to its neutral position after casting. This helps generate pinpoint casts over long distances, helped by the large, friction-free, high-quality #50 SIC guides. Using this rod, it’s possible to achieve casts in excess of 100 metres, while the FUJI reel seat makes sure the reel sits absolutely tight.

Catapult Marker

A first-class rod for any angler wanting to cast to the perfect spot. The sensitive tip transfers the slightest movement to the handle, which means you get a precise picture of the structure of the riverbed as you fish. The powerful blank and extra large #50 SIC guides ensure the marker float can be sent out over long distances. A moveable rubber ring on the blank also means that the unit of measurement can be adjusted.

Competition Carp

The slim, high performance and lightweight blank of this rod prove it’s a typical SPORTEX creation,

from the casting all the way to the catch. The powerful blank sets the hook even across largest distances. Still it is sensitive enough to carefully and savely land the fish
near the bank or boat. The SIC guides make for optimum heat dissipation and long casting distances. Thanks to its elegant design, the Competition Carp also cuts a very fine figure in any rod pod.
