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.
