Thats a hell of a big open ended question mate and I suggest you might get more help quickly if you define it a bit more.
Do you meam 'Carp' Tackle as in 'carp' specialist, Big carp, multiple rod, boilie type baitrunner reel, inc. alarms, bivvies and bedchair fishing,
or method feeder, bagging waggler,hit and hold Pole, commercial carp pond fishing?
And how about price?
Perfectly good, but non designer label, Badger or Askari type kit, or Nash/Shimano /Fox type expensive kit?
There are some good carp men on here, so if you define more what you want, you could get quicker advice.
Hope you enjoy the forum and more importantly , the fishing.
Why is it you have picked the 3 worst names for paying thru the nose just for their names. There is a wealth of tackle just as good and at a fairer price out there. Okuma reels for example have justifiably received rave reviews. Leeda and ABU both do excellent rods that can be bought at sale prices.
Its not how much you spend but how you use it!
I would suggest you start in the lower price range then gradually work your way up unless of course you are already an expert, but in that case you wouldnt have posted the question I suppose.
