Is there any reason why i cant use my Dictator z 3lb tc pike rods for Carping ? Would they be too hard / wrong action ?? anyone know ??

I know i wont be able to cast to the horizon with them as they have loads of rings ( 9 ) and not that big a diameter either.

TA Very Happy .

Thats what i thought Stubbo. Ive got Carp rods as previously mentioned but only 21/4 lb tc. so am limited to what i can sling out.

My biggest Carp ( 18 3/4 Mirror ) was caught years ago on a 9 ft ("East anglian rod co ) Leger Fibreglass rod, cork handles with the rings you slide over the reel handles, 6lb line straight through, 6 hook, 2 grains of corn, mitchell 300 reel. It fought like a Tiger.

I was Chubbing at the time and stumbled across 6 carp, biggest 30 + i reckon. I got the smallest one.

Sounds to me Pikeslag, that they would hold up nicely m8. Youve had a good season with the Carp then m8.

I,m looking forward to trying for Carp as i havnt really done any over the years.

Your Dictator rods, are they the mk2 z Eurospecialist whisker amorphous ??

I used my old Dictator Z's (nevs) for carping for a couple of seasons and they were brilliant.

No, i havnt Tootal. Never gave it a thought really as these rods are from mid 90's. Might be worth a shot though.

Good idea that ta. Will see what / if they can do.
