The Touron Carp Series are four-piece rods ideal for carrying in a backpack or a small case. But despite the multiple sections, there really is nothing to differentiate between their action and that of a two-piece rod. They have comparable casting and damping properties, and they also have plenty of power reserves in the spine. Another special feature is that you can fish the Touron Carp in two different lengths. The 12ft model, if the last part but one is removed, can also be used as a 9ft stalker/boat rod. The 13ft model can be used as a 10ft version. It means you have two rods in one. The rods have slim SIC guides from Seaguide (butt guide size 50), a full EVA handle and FUJI DPS reel seat.
