JRC Powerplay Review

Carp Rod Review


JRC  produce a large array of carp tackle.

Many retailers, particularly online,  stock a wide range of JRC tackle from rod pods & bivvies to carp barrows and bite indicators.

I really like their catalogue of products they have to offer (JRC Carp Catalogue can be found here if your interested)

Our first JRC carp rod review is the Powerplay.

JRC Powerplay Review

[wp-review id=”362″]

Constructed from a high modulus carbon blank, this rod comes in 2 sections.

It utilises 6 high quality SIC guides (the largest at 40mm)

Moving further down to the reel section, a big pit reel would easily fit into the secure 20mm reel seat provided.

There’s an abbreviated duplon handle and a nice rubber butt completes the finish nicely.

This 2.75lb test curve model weighs in at 268g -which is not exactly the lightest rod we’ve reviewed.

There is a spod rod model with a test curve of 4.5lb.

A disappointing rod really.

Retailing at about £50, there are other carp rods that provide better value for money.

It does look well made, and performed solidly – there are just better options out there.
