There’s no denying the huge popularity of Sonik rods and its latest addition to the range is the Vader X. It’s a company that aims to provide anglers far and wide with superbly designed fishing tackle that sets the standards for quality, performance and value for money. Its passion for designing and developing tackle resonates through these sleek, sexy, slim rods that are a thing of beauty; a range of technically advanced rods that truly set a standard. They feature a slim, lightweight matt black carbon fibre blank with double-leg SiC guides and anti-frap tip ring with a progressive action that packs a punch. They are powerful rods with fast tip recovery for accurate long-distance casting, allowing you to cast to the horizon with ease.
The lightweight blank is forgiving yet controlled when playing fish at close quarters, avoiding hook-pulls. The 50mm butt guide on the 3lb test curve and above allows line to sail through the rings and is complemented by the 17mm black DPS reel seat to house big-pit reels, helping to achieve those extra yards on the cast. The guys at Sonik have thought of everything – a fold-friendly ringing pattern, line-friendly custom contoured Sonik clip, subtle graphics with black anodised butt cap laser etched with its ‘S’ logo and a sublime slim Japanese shrink-wrap butt grip.
It comes as no surprise that over the last six years, Sonik has become well and truly established as one of the leading names in the UK market. Keep your eyes peeled for these on the bank.
