Looking for a 10ft 3lb carp rod paired with a bait runner reel. Any good recommendations. Would like to get 2 matching rods and reels for less than £200 if possible

Just sold a 10ft Daiwa Black Widow 3lb TC. You can get 2 brand new for £100 which leaves you with £100 for your reels.

Assume it's a small venue hence 10ft

I use TFG compact carp commercial rods in 2.5 tc currently 34.99 on ebay

Slim blanks, through actioned, light and surprising power

I use with old centrepin in the margin or 4000 DLFB shimano if casting

Brilliant rods and reels

In fact I bought a spare just in case

There are lots of 10 foot carp rods sold as 3lb test curve from Wychwood Rogue at £35 and several around the £50 Riots etc.in their range plus the Daiwa Black widows but they may be hard to find as they have been out of stock for a while or Fox EOS same price.
With reels depends on if you want a big pit or a baitrunner or a combination of both under £50 there are products from Wychwood which would suit or Zebco do a reasonable baitrunner for £40.A little more would buy a Daiwa Black widow or a Fox EOS baitrunner.
At the moment its very much a case of grabbing what might be in stock because there are many broken promises in this area.
