Hi

i’m looking to get a carp waggler rod or something a little more beefy than my Preston pellet waggler.
The carp in my club lakes are a bit big for my pole and can’t hold on to them when they charge towards snags. Could be used fishing down the edges too.
Any ideas what brand I should be looking at?
Thanks in advance

Depends on your budget, mate, really. Free Spirit do some nice carp waggler rods. I use a Greys CTX 11ft Specialist Float rod. You’ll get quite a few recommendations I’m sure.

I personally like the old drennen DRX carp logic or Power rods, which I find can handle fish to 14lb - provided they do not immediately dive for the reed bed 1 foot away, when fishing 20 yards out. HOWEVER, have to look for a replacement so look forward to the answers which are submitted.

Too many to mention really, and all sorts of prices.

Drennan Vertex 12 foot Carp Waggler (these are really decent rods)
Diawa N'Zon (can take some stick)
Browning CK Carp Waggler to name just a bit of a selection out there.

I’ve haven’t used Freespirit rods yet but as Reuben says I have heard good things about them. They do a ‘beefed up’ waggler rod for places like Boddingtons (the one with the carpy handle).

They aren’t cheap though so again it would depend on your budget.

Must admit most of my pellet wagg work has been in open water with few snags so prefer a tippy rod to avoid hookpulls
