With thisTest series we take a look at unhooking mats and of course, protection is paramount here. As much as we all love a pocket-friendly product, we honestly believe that this is one product that no angler should scrape on, ever! What we are looking for here is the complete protective package, how much padding is on offer, can the carp be retained for short periods without flapping off or out of the mat and how mobile the entire bundle is. Yes, before you say it, the carp we have used for illustrative purposes is rather large, measuring in at a whopping 84 centimetres long and 56 centimetres from dorsal fin to pelvic fin, hence the tight fit.
Weighs: 2.3kg The Avid Carp Cot is made of a 150D Breathastop 10,0000mm waterproof material, and a totally unique folding design that incorporates two built-in stability rods. The Carp Cot is extremely portable and folds down to almost nothing. It can be stored away in the carry bag supplied. With its handle and removable fish-friendly inner mattress this is an ideal unhooking mat/cradle for the angler who doesn’t have much room to store their gear and likes to be on the move. Not to be confused with the Fox Easy Mat; these are very much two different items.
