    Product feature
    1. Composition
      - high modulus carbon blank - press-fit spigot - SIC guides starting at 50 mm, 30 mm, 20 mm, 16 mm, 12 mm and 12 mm tip - metal reel seat - handle: double tapered blank
    2. Test
      The rod resistance was tested with assemblies which were 50% heavier than the tolerance indicated. However, for optimal comfort, you should use rigs that are adapted to the rod's casting weight.
    3. RING SIZE
      SEAGUIDE rings butt 50 mm, 30 mm, 20 mm, 16 mm, 12 mm and 12 mm tip. The distinguishing features of SEAGUIDE rings are that they are lightweight and highly resistant to braid. You can use braid on your reels with no fear of damaging your rings. This is a prime criterion of choice if you use braid regularly.
    4. THERE IS A STORY BEHIND THIS ROD
      TEAM CAPERLAN engineers and designers developed and tested this product in Cestas, in the Gironde region of France. In the heart of the Landes region lie the big lakes and still waters that are famous throughout France for their big fish and extreme conditions. The supercharged giant carp there really put our teams and products to the test. SATISFIED ANGLERS, THAT'S WHAT WE'RE HERE FOR!
    5. RING ATTACHMENT
      The rod rings are supported by 3 legs. These 3-leg guides are stronger for greater resistance to heavy duty casting.
    6. REEL SEAT
      The metal reel seat is adjustable. This allows you to properly balance your outfit to optimize your casting Further information on: https://www.caperlan.fr/content/comment-regler-son-porte-moulinet
    7. WEIGHT
      450 g
    8. TEST CURVE
      The test curve of your rod is a gauge of two different but complementary characteristics: - The ability to resist a tensile force such as when playing a fish. -The rod's ability to cast a weight over a certain distance. The 3.5 lbs test curve will enable you to cast up to 130 g beyond 140m and master fish of all sizes with ease.
    9. INNOVATION: Better visibility at night
      The MOON CONCEPT tip lights up when hit by UV light (MOON CONCEPT head lamp recommended) See explanatory video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OguuKteN11s
    10. PRESS-FIT TYPE
      Inverted press-fit: the lower (bigger) section has a slimmer cylindrical piece added to the upper end. This spigot press-fits into the end of the upper section. The spigot joint improves the through action of the rod.
    11. MAINTENANCE
      Everyday maintenance is simple: just clean your rods with warm soapy water, and then rinse and dry them carefully, paying special attention to the joints. This step is very important to make sure you remove any sand which can damage your rods

    14. CHOOSING THE RIGHT ROD FOR YOUR HEIGHT
      It is often said that the longer the carp rod, the further you can cast. But it is mainly your size (and your centre of gravity) which determines how far you cast. For example, if you are less than 1.70m tall, you will find a 13 foot rod less comfortable than a 12 foot rod. It will shift your centre of gravity towards that upper part of you body. Which means it will take more effort to use and cast
    15. IN THE EVENT OF BREAKAGE? CAN THE ROD BE REPAIRED?
      After sales service is available at the workshop of your DECATHLON store. Depending on the model, tips are available in the customer support centre.
    16. YOUR ROD BLANK
      The term "blank" refers to the main part of a fishing rod, which is often made of carbon or fibreglass. For some of our rods we use the term HM carbon (High Modulus). Put simply, the modulus (expressed in tonnes) is the weight to stiffness ratio of the carbon. The higher the modulus, the lighter the blank and the more resistant it is to constraints such as the force exerted by a fish during the fight.
    17. GETTING THE BALANCE RIGHT FOR LONG RANGE CASTING (Part 1)
      To be able to cast a long way you need to consider two aspects: equipment and technique. As far as equipment is concerned, the winning combination is: 1. A rod with a test curve of 3.25 to 3.75 lbs 2.. Reel: it is essential to choose a reel with a long distance spool which releases the line more easily, thus gaining those extra metres. The Adonis 7000, available in your fishing section, is the ideal candidate.
    18. GETTING THE BALANCE RIGHT FOR LONG RANGE CASTING (Part 2)
      3. The choice between monofilament or braid is entirely a question of personal preference. Whichever you choose, you will need a small diameter such as 28/100 for maximum casting distance. 4. Where it is allowed, you should have a 3 m leader of 30/100 braid. As braid has no stretch, all the energy of the cast will be transmitted via the rod, not taken up by the line.
    19. CAUTION!
      Before casting, check that the joints are properly assembled. A badly inserted spigot is the main cause of rod breakage. Casting with the last few metres of your line dry increases the risk of breakage. To prevent this happening you should wet your main line before casting.

    3. Product restrictions
      Do not use near to electrical power sources or during storms.
    4. Product catchline
      This slim lightweight rod with a medium action can be used for precise long-distance casts of any rig. The carbon blank effectively transmits every movement while you are fishing.
    5. Lab tested
      The strength of the rod has been tested using rigs 50% heavier than the rated load. However, for optimal performance, it is essential to use rigs suited to the rod's casting weight.
