The 12ft CF-X Spod was voted 'Best in Test' amongst 20 other spod rods by Carpology.
The CF-X Spod rod has been designed to cast a spod or spomb as far as possible. It has a fast stepped-up action, which a good casting technique will help to get the best from. If you require a spod rod that is easier to cast, don't overlook the CF-X 12ft 3.75lb Marker Rod, which has a more progressive action and is ideal for middle to long distance spod work. As with the CF-X Marker, the CF-X Spod has attractive tippet whippings spaced at one and two foot intervals above the top of the reel seat to enable accurate depth finding.

Key Tester Comments
Adam: "Again, this rod was an animal, and in the right hands it would hit 140-150yds easily and was super-accurate when casting at our three marker floats - effortless at hitting the 100yd spot and a very nice looking rod too." "This was a really nice, well balanced rod," adds John. "It was light, comfortable, responsive and looks great - coping with all the distances and further easily." "I really like the look of this rod as well," agrees Wayne. "The blank and the fittings, and the rod was very well balanced and accurate - I was casting within inches of the markers; one of my favourites so far."
