Chris87 Posted January 20 Report Share Posted January 20 Morning! New user here, joined on the back of searching online and stumbling across your forum Im a relatively novice carp angler, having recently been using 8ft sonik xtractor recons paired with sonik vader 6000fs reels for a couple of years I have now upgraded to 9ft insurgent rods after finding a blinding deal on an auction on ebay. My wife has surprised me with a trip to France this year with couple of my friends for a week with chances to catch bigger carp. Therefore i’m looking to purchase some decent reels plenty capable of some larger fish on the chance of hooking one. Im going to the essex carp show next weekend and ideally looking for relatively light reels for max £200 per reel if possible, so far shortlist has been; shimano 5500 xtd or ci4 - are the ci4 worth the extra £? nash scope gt6000 - although these seem to be sold out everywhere daiwa emblem 35 - but not sure if id want these as they seem heavy by comparison to previous options Thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
