Shimano Alivio 12ft 3.5lb
Shimano Alivio 12ft 3.5lb was originally designed for specimen carp anglers on a budget, but we believe that this rod is as good as any!
Here at Fishing Pro Shop, we stock the 12 foot 3.5lb version. The reason for this is that most carp anglers in South Africa either have to cast a heavyweight or we take the bait out with a boat.
The heavy backbone allows anglers to cast and move those heavyweights and big carp back to shore effortlessly.
Sporting a parabolic bend this rod is also ideal for anglers fighting carp from a boat. The bend “shortens” the rod allowing for easy netting and also avoids hook pulls under the rod tip.
The Alivio is a two-piece rod. This allows for safe storage and easy traveling!
Pair the Alivio with a Shimano Aerlex 10000, add some braid or mono depending on the area you are fishing and wala, carping pleasure guaranteed!!!
The staff at Fishing Pro Shop in Pretoria has been involved with Specimen Carp angling for a very very long time and look forward to assisting you with setting up your specimen carp gear!
