VER­DICT

Angling Times (UK) - - TACKLE NEWS -

PER­FECT first ‘proper’ carp rods, Shi­mano’s su­per-pop­u­lar Alivio range boasts cool, cult-like un­der­stated looks. It has qual­ity Hardlite guides pitched across a very hard­wear­ing Shi­mano XT30 Geo Fi­bre car­bon blank, which in­cludes a pro­tec­tive line clip. As much at home on small runs wa­ters as they are on large gravel pits, at un­der £35 the Alivio rods in all their 12ft in­car­na­tions are a hard act to beat.
