Made from high modulus carbon, the X3 Abbreviated Handle Rod features a lightweight action that’s comfortable to use across a range of disciplines, and on a variety of venues. Cork handles provide a light, bouncing feel, whilst still ensuring that all the power of a lively fight with a large specimen can be handle calmly, cleanly, and safely, without putting undue strain on angler or tackle. Anti-tangle guides allow your line to flow out smoothly, keeping placement on point through distance casts, and under heavy bait loads, while a DPS-style reel seat, which comes in at 18mm, puts the feel of the fight at your fingertips, with sensitive transmission that tells you exactly what your next move should be.

Designed with stylish, understated graphics that look good whilst keeping a low profile, the X3 Cork Handle Rods are available at 12ft, which provides reach and power without compromising on sensitivity or manoeuvrability, making light work of long sessions in heavy conditions, even if you’re new to angling, and offering the ideal addition to the campaign carper’s angling arsenal. With a choice of 2.75lb, 3lb, or 3.5lb test curves on these 12ft cork handled carp rods, Fox have made it easier than ever to find the rod that meets your needs, and suits your style of fishing.

Designed to meet the performance needs of anglers on a budget, the Horizon X3 Range from Fox brings quality, crafted precision angling tackle to the market, with an instant appeal that everyone will appreciate, and a price tag that all anglers can afford.

If you’re looking to take your angling to the next level, then the Horizon X3 range from Fox is a good place to start your search for the core tackle choices you’ll need to help ensure you make the right decisions out on the bank. Once you’ve chosen the cork handled rod that’s right for you, why not ensure it’s fully protected with a rod holdall from our stylish and supportive luggage range, perfect for stalking anglers and barrow boys (and girls!) alike?
