1.     Fox Horizon X3 Cork Handle Rod 12ft 3.00lb TC
Made from high modulus carbon, the X3 Abbreviated Handle rod features a lightweight action that's comfortable to use across a range of disciplines including Pike, and on a variety of venues. 

Cork handles provide a light, bouncing feel, whilst still ensuring that all the power of a lively fight with a large specimen can be handle calmly, cleanly, and safely, without putting undue strain on angler or tackle. 

Anti-tangle guides allow your line to flow out smoothly, keeping placement on point through distance casts, and under heavy bait loads, while a DPS-style reel seat, which comes in at 18mm, puts the feel of the fight at your fingertips, with sensitive transmission that tells you exactly what your next move should be.


2.     Wychwood Agitator BR-S Rod

The Agitator Bait rod is an incredible tool that offers unrivalled performance and value for money.

The powerful through action high modulus carbon blank allows soft baits to be cast with ease and without fear of casting them off, whilst still retaining enough power in the butt to achieve an effective hook set even at range.

The hybrid EVA and cork handle, combined with the Atlas reel seat, and ergonomic fore grip, make these rods a thing of beauty.

With double leg braid friendly SiC guides throughout and built to the highest standard these are the perfect tool for any bait application be it float, ledger, or paternoster.

3.     Drennan E-sox Power Pikeflex

The E-Sox Pikeflex rod features an excellent carbon blank which is light and well balanced with a progressive power play action.

It makes a pefect boat rod, providing good line and float contril and handling a wide range of bait sizes. It features a Fuji reel seat and full SiC guides, with a responsive tactile tip, so when fishing artificial baits you can feel exactly how the lure is working. With a semi-through action, playing smaller fish remains enjoyable with significant reserves of power in the mid-section. These rods easily cope with big, hard-fighting predators.


4.     Sonik Vader X RS

These rods are designed to suit the needs of the discerning angler, enhancing your fishing experience with superb design elements and engineering precision.

At the heart of this exceptional product is the slim, lightweight, sleek black armoured carbon blank – a robust framework that provides a solid yet forgiving backbone for fighting feisty pike. Notably, the Sonik Vader X RS Rods sport a progressive casting action with superfast tip recovery, empowering you with superior control and pinpoint casting accuracy. The casting action marries power and distance with phenomenal sensitivity, ensuring you're never left guessing when a pike is interested in your bait.

To further bolster performance, these rods feature super-light M-SERIES DL black guides, a feature that maximises line protection and longevity. Alongside this, the hard-wearing anti-frap ceramic tip ring minimises the chances of line damage during those epic battles, thereby reducing the risk of losing your prized catch.

The rods also feature a line friendly custom contoured Sonik clip and unique guide patterns to accommodate different line strengths: 40mm on 12ft 2.75lb and below, and 50mm on 12ft 3.00lb and above. This thoughtful addition ensures optimal performance regardless of your preferred line weight.


5.     Leeda Rogue

For my last option I have selected something which may not be everyone’s cup of tea! These Leeda Rogue carp rods are 10ft - 3lb test curve and 12ft - 3.5lb test curve. I actually bought 1 myself due to the price being very reasonable and I cannot fault them. Very reliable, strong and give great fishing playing properties – perfect for Pike.
