RECON technology utilises a double retractable butt section and combines this with Sonik's new VARI-TAPER™ joint construction to produce rods that both look and feel like their 2-section predecessors. If you are looking for top performance and ultimate convenience you no longer have to compromise.
Available in 8ft or traditional 12ft lengths, the 8ft Xtractor Recon rods pack down to only 30" (76cm) and are some of the most versatile carp rods that Sonik have ever produced. They feature a longer style handle and 40mm ringing pattern which both aid in casting and fish playing ability.
Like all Xtractor rods you will find these to have a satisfying progressive action lending itself perfectly to all forms of carp fishing. Of course, at only 30" these could be the travel carp rods that you have been waiting for but don’t be deceived; the performance of these rods just might convince you to keep a set handy for whenever a fishing opportunity arises.
The 8ft length is available with 2.5lb, 3lb or 3.5lb test curves which will cover any carp fishing scenario you are likely to encounter;
8ft - 2.5lb:- The perfect model for smaller waters where heavy tactics are not required. Suitable for those who appreciate a rod’s fighting curve but need power in reserve for when the need arises.
8ft - 3.0lb:- This all-rounder is happy landing singles, doubles or 40lbers if required. If PVA tactics are high on your list, this rod has the power to provide the extra oomph required.
8ft - 3.5lb:- The worldwide special, if big carp are your target then this is the rod you need. Has large reserves of power when you need it to land the largest fish.
If you need the performance of a 12ft rod but don’t want the hassle of transporting long rod sections, then the 12ft Xtractor Recon could be what you are missing.
Packing down to only 50" (127cm) with a full length handle and full 50mm guide pattern these rods offer you a ‘no-compromise’ solution for performance carp rods.
The 12ft length is available with 3lb, 3.25lb or 3.5lb test curves to cover a wide variety of fishing situations.
