I recently took on a challenge for Dragon Carp… catch a load of commons and mirrors on budget gear and prove that price doesn’t always make a difference.
So off I trundled to the store refusing to buy top end gear and concentrating on items that sold in numbers, the kind of tackle normal people can afford.
A matching pair of Matsuku Rotorblades were on my list – I selected the £10 versions but they also come in ‘posh’ £15 versions and even Platinum for £20.
And what a performance they put in for the money helping me catch a string of carp to £20 – the front drag giving line on demand and the freespool mechanism working to perfection.
The reels are fairly fast too, a 4:9:1 ratio, and you could use them for all big fish requirement as well as spinning.
If you want to see just how good my Titanium Rotorblades were, check out this film:
