Extreme poles for extreme situations.
The Hypercarp range is a new concept in pole design. These are specialist carp poles designed specifically for catching much larger than average carp. They take over when normal “Power Poles” are judged to be too weak. These are extremely strong poles designed for the more extreme fishing situations. The poles are still constructed using high grade carbons – essential to maintain stiffness and to minimise weight gain. However, section walls and joints have been significantly thickened and strengthened, particularly on the heavily loaded middle sections most likely to fail when large fish are regularly hooked.
The Hypercarps are slightly heavier than conventional poles, but are stiff, well balanced and still comfortably fishable at long lengths. The Hypercarps are also a good choice for anglers that are “hard” on poles and anglers that need or prefer to use a pole stronger than the typical modern “Power Pole” anglers willing to accept some extra weight in exchange for the total confidence that their pole won‘t let them down when the pressure is really on!
These poles are suitable for the heaviest elastics commercially available. The 2 piece topkits have extra large diameter pre-bushed tips that do not need cutting back, so no lost length. There is also a two hole side pulla topkit available fitted with our unique directional PTFE pulla bush design for completely smooth elastic recovery. There are two Hypercarp long-poles in the range with lengths and prices to suit different needs and budgets.
A strong pole does not need to be soft and heavy!
Top of the Hypercarp range. The HC60 is amazingly light and stiff for a pole with so much power and strength. The pole has minimal “bounce” when striking – resulting in more hooked fish! The biggest fish, the heaviest elastics and lines, and in the toughest conditions – the HC60 will take it all! Carp larger than 15kg/35lb have already been caught on this pole. The topkits are pre-fitted with large diameter PTFE bushes that will take the thickest elastics. Delivered at 13m, but with an optional extension to increase to 14.5m.
For very big fish or in difficult fishing situations.
The strongest pole we have ever made, the HC40 is designed for catching very big fish or for use in “hit and hold” situations when fishing near snags. Incredible power and strength but still adequately stiff and easy to handle. The topkits are pre-fitted with large diameter PTFE bushes that will take the thickest elastics.
