For those of you who are new to this brand, here’s a bit of an insight into what they’re all about. Essex based Free Spirit have been manufacturing some of the finest quality carp and specialist rods on the market for well over 15 years. If you ask any carp angler to name his top three rod manufacturer, you can guarantee that one of the names mentioned by a very high percentage will be Free Spirit, their reputation in this market is that good. So the UKMA team spoke to the company’s director and product development manager Simeon Bond, to find out how the new for 2016 CTX rod range came about, here’s what he had to say.

Free Spirit CTX

“As the culmination of around 4 years research and development work we are pleased to announce details of our new ranges of match rods. These will be available in the CTX range and will include Carp Wagglers and Carp Feeders, and in due course Long Range Feeder rods and Float rods for lake and river use”.
Simeon continued “We have unashamedly tried to be different . As well as using the CTX carbons that are tried and tested we have also incorporated some very different designs and features. The CTX rods feature hi-modulus 40t carbon so are light and well balanced and feature A grade cork rear handles but we were conscious to make these affordable for the everyday angler.
