Reviews and News: Agutters 11ft Split Cane Carp MIV Specialist Carp Rod. written by Tom o'Reilly. I've always felt that a 10 foot MKIV rod lacked a little in versatility. It is a design classic for which its modern forerunners have a lot to thank it for. Yet for float and floater carp fishing I've felt it needed a little extra height to help whip the end tackle out.

I was very interested when Agutters said that they do an eleven foot version. I've two of their standard ten foot MKIV's, which are brilliant, both as ledgering and stalking rods.
The eleven foot version came four weeks after I'd made the order. The finish on the rod was excellent, the tight intermediate whipping looked stunning and the varnish was well applied. On some modern-made split cane rods the builders quite often coat the ring whippings with an epoxy resin. I do not like this, it looks clumsy and ugly, and more in keeping with a state of the art kevlar rod than a traditional split cane. Agutters, I'm thrilled to say, don't use this method, they just coat the rod with several layers of yacht varnish.
The rod has performed as good as it looks, and it's surprising how that extra foot gives a greater casting distance to my carp float fishing work. It also gives a greater control and accuracy to my casting.
The rod is now a favourite of mine, and I use it virtually every time I go fishing as I can use it for ledgering as well, in fact I've just ordered another to make pair! I wonder what a twelve footer would be like... Agutters Fishing Tackle Marionville, South Stour Avenue, Ashford, Kent, England, TN23 7RS TEL: 01233 626748 - Click Here!
