The TX5 is very powerful, yet there is no compromise on the playing action in the tip and middle section, which is required for playing fish and maintaining a secure hook-hold.
The TX5 series has been developed with a plastic line clip, an essential in my opinion for that extra peace of mind to help send the hook home when the fish bolt off.
Shimano’s stainless steel Hardlite guides combining a lightweight yet robust anodised steel frame with aluminum oxide liners offer the ideal balance of strength and performance without compromise.
This rod is packed full of features. The rear grip is manufactured from a Winn Grip material, which has resulted in a distinctive-looking carp rod with a very nice feeling to the grip.
With an astonishing RRP of just £174.99 the TX5 12ft is a must-have.
£174.99 (12ft); £194.99 (13ft)
