Free Spirit CTX 12ft 3.25lb (Matt Finish)
The new CTX range of carp rods cover every possibility from small water with the 2 1/2's to extreme range with the S.U. models. Each rod undergoes a complex manufacturing process integrating 40t and 30t carbons with resin content below 25%. Wrapping alternately at 90 degrees and zero degrees for added strength, then further wrapping with 3mm bi-axis carbon tape at 45 degrees produces extremely strong yet ultra-light and slim blanks.
In addition to a much improved power to weight ratio of a blank at this price, a further advantage of this multi-layer structure is the accuracy of casting as the blank is less prone to twisting and the effect of bias. We are known for our distance casting rods and have proven during testing that the blank construction has produced rods with extreme casting abilities and great recovery. Cosmetically the X-Tape runs the length of the blank and gives it a very attractive and distinctive Perdurable finish.
This outstanding rod range is finished with Fuji DPS reel seats, stainless steel collars and S-Lite guides with both 40mm and 50mm models making them perform and look fantastic for many years to come and... they won't break the bank. Complimentary to this range and still in testing stage will be stalking rods, landing nets and a range of barbel rods.

This is a fantastic rod and definitely the Jewel in the range, slim, great to look at and use and will do pretty much anything you need, it is comfortable at fishing 120-130 yds but is also perfectly ok to use at 30 yds on a smaller water. This rods cast 3.5oz comfortably or pop a 3oz lead and a stick mix on and you will hit over 100yds with ease. Since Free Spirit launched this rod we haven’t found any other make of rod under £150 that gets anywhere near the CTX 3.25lb!!
