  1. I did have a look at the Sonik Vader X rod and reel combos online and they dont look too bad for the prize when you shop around. Dont get me wrong I dont think they are a bad place for people to learn, just not for me. I learn best from putting myself under pressure, as it makes me thing and try and solve puzzles to get the result I want. I believe there comes a point where you may lose the drive to improve and or become lazy in how you do things when it becomes easy to get an end goal. Thank you Elmoputney, I'm here to learn and different opinions help with that massively πŸ‘πŸ½
  2. Hi Smufter I've used a baitrunner years ago to fish to a weir in place called Abbey park it was where the river Soar and Grand union met in the centre of Leicester. It used to hold some good carp back in the day. If memory serves me right it's an old Shimano with a red lever at the back. I still have it somewhere amongst my dads old kit. All I've done the last few days is look at carp tackle and I was shocked at some of the prices, gone are the days you could walking into a tackle shop and buy what you needed for under 50 quid πŸ˜‚, even then my dad told my mum everything was half price πŸ˜‚. Thank you for the recommendations, I'll take them onboard when I put my hand in my pocket πŸ‘πŸ½.
  3. Nothing that size just yet, think the intimidation factor would kick big time πŸ˜‚. I will eventually want to do a 24hr+, but think I need bring my carp fishing skills up to a good level first. I dont fancy going on run water for the sole face I want to improve and I personally dont see how that is possible if not matter what you do you can catch. I've have been offered a few bits of kit which include a 1x esp sniper 2 3 1/4 and a centium 3lb both 12ft along with 2x daiwa crosscast 5500qd for Β£140. Not sure about the centium rod though.
  4. Thank you. Now I just need to know where to start πŸ˜…
  5. New to Carp.com and new to carp fishing. Just recently moved to Leighton Buzzard from leicester. Never really carp fished before, most of my fishing was canals and rivers just general course fishing as my dad was a match angler back in the day. I havent fished for a long time, about 10 years ago now with the old mans old fishing kit. I still need to buy the right gear as have nothing at the moment and thought this would be the best place to get some good info on what to buy and where to start fishing close to me. Looking forward to learning and improving with help from the site. Tedbed
