The philosophy behind the Darent Valley rod range is to take advantage of modern manufacturing techniques and materials to create exceptionally high performance rods at very affordable prices.
Darent Valley rods brings the fun back into fishing.

Using the same action as the highly acclaimed 11ft 0.75lb & 1.25lb versions, this more powerful 1.75lb rod is more suited for using on medium to large rivers for barbel, big chub and on Stillwater's for big bream, tench, Zander or on any commercial for carp.

Built on a quality carbon blank with a slim full length cork style handle, 16mm DPS style reel seat, lined rings throughout and with attractive cosmetics.
The ringing pattern is our 'Fold friendly' design which allows them to be transported more conveniently and safely.
Each rod is supplied in a lightweight rod and reel sleeve.

This review is purely based on seeing and handling the rods, I am yet to fish with them. I'm utterly gobsmacked at the quality and overall finish of these rods. I am over the moon with them and on face value seem an absolute steal for the price. On top of this the service from The Tackle Box was also 5 stars.
Fantastic rods ideal for carp tench bream
I’ve had carp to 21lb on theses rods no issues.
Tench to 8lb & bream to same sort of size
The playing action is superb
The rods themselves look and feel great
Got mine teamed up with drennan baitrunner reels
Super rod for the money. Bought two of these on the strength of various good things I’d read about them - wanted a lower test curve, more ‘traditional’ soft rod for margin/close range carp fishing & floater work & these are perfect. They balance very well with a small Baitrunner such as the Shimano 4000 ST FB. Obviously, you don’t expect high-end fittings & finish on a rod costing 50-odd quid, but the standard of build & finish on these is surprisingly good. Highly recommended if anyone’s in the market for similar & doesn’t want to spend the earth.
