Fox has expanded the Horizon range of carp rods and made a version that looks a million dollars but costs a lot less...

RRP: from £79.99 | www.foxint.com

Fox has refreshed its rod range following last year’s release of the flagship Horizon X5s.

Joining that Horizon stable are the X3 and X4 variants, and these are the cheapest versions, though they appear far from cut-price.

Lee Morris is certainly impressed with these

Looking at the X3 rods you’d think they cost double. The blanks are slim, the reel seats are minimalist and the ringing looks just right.

We heard Fox consultant Lee Morris let slip on a recent social-media video that he struggled to tell the X3 spod rod apart from its more expensive X5 version. High praise indeed.

We have yet to give these a thrashing on the bank, but first impressions are very good. There are cork and abbreviated handle versions and lengths from 10ft to 13ft.
