Fox's new Horizon X4 carp rods are nipping at the heels of the Horizon X5s in terms of performance, but at a much reduced cost...
RRP: from £160 | www.foxint.com
Slotting in between the X5s and the X3s, these glossy-blank beauties promise to pack a punch for the money.
In a world full of matte-black carp blanks, it’s refreshing to see rods with a dash of reflection and sheen. Fox says that’s the trend on the continent, but these rods look great to us too.
The range starts at £160 and tops out at just under £200, so you can be assured of decent performance from the full 2k weave and Fuji DPS reel seat.
There are 10-footers, 12-footers and a 13-footer, plus a 13ft spod/marker rod.
