The heavyweight contender 12wt Car'Poon

Another great client challenge, an upcoming saltwater trip for GT and more in the Indian Ocean. Similarly it should be a match for the Hatch Finatic with a blue centre hub. This was a great opportunity for us to build the new 12wt Car'Poon. Based on the same split taper technology from CTS we have a rod that has plenty of low end grunt for a big fight with sensitivity and accuracy that we created in the original 10wt Car'Poon. This is the result, an amazingly versatile rod for heavyweight saltwater fly fishing. All titanium fittings including Fuji Torzite Guides and REC titanium snake guides.

The Car'Poon 10wt 7'9" for Mike

Beauty meets power with this 10wt Gouldfish Car'Poon rod built for Mike. This is an exceptional blank featuring a split taper to give deep down power combined with tippet protection and delicate presentation.. A broad grain window means this 10wt rod is equally happy with line weights down to 6 or 7.

Gouldfish Built CTS 12wt does epic battle

One of our friends is a big fan of fishing for shark on the fly and came to us with a challenge to build a glass rod with the power needed to pull big beasts from the depth and still have the leader protecting qualities we associate with fine glass. This was our response based on a 12wt CTS 8'6 blank and finished with all titanium fittings to survive the rigours of saltwater. Styling has been done in a retro sea fishing style with underwraps.
