I'm using a pair of Darent Valley 10ft 3lb carp rods for my piking. They are nice rods for the price but looking into replacing them with pair of 11ft rods. I do like the CTX carp rods but are they ok for piking using 40lb braid...?

Just in case you are unaware, Freespirit do "Pike Tamer" rods at a similar level to the CTX carp rods.

Carp rods not really made for piking, not designed to chuck a 4oz lead and a massive deadbait, need quite a through-actioned rod for that, carp rods can be quite tippy.

I use a pair of 12' Greys Prowla Platinums and i would never buy another pike rod now, really a lot of rod for the money, now discontinued but can still be found in a few places.
