Specially designed for carp fishing, the Carson Hermes Runner is versatile enough to appeal to sea anglers bottom-fishing and those targeting difficult fish like striped sea bream. It heads a trio of reels for carp fishing which includes the Carson Sensor Runner IX and Carson Flash Runner IX.
The trio is part of a portfolio of reels launched by the Italian tackle specialist as it seeks to increase its export markets in Europe, especially eastern Europe and Russia.
The Carson Hermes Runner has a free spool lever and features micrometric drag, a ‘one-way clutch’ unlimited anti-reverse, an aluminium spool, a one-touch folding handle and a freerunner quick-release system. It is available in four weights: 300g, 385g, 395g and 499g.
The Carson Sensor Runner IX is perfect for both carp and big catfish fishing. Says Carson: “It is an innovative reel that combines smooth drag and quiet operation with an ultra-lightweight free spool system.” It features eight stainless steel ball bearings and an anti-twist line roller. “The aluminium spool is perforated to lighten the reel frame and to ensure a balanced rotation during retrieve,” adds Carson. The gear ratio is 5.5:1 and the weight is 500g.
The Carson Flash Runner IX has been especially designed for carp fishing and both freshwater and saltwater bottom fishing. It features six stainless steel ball bearings, a graphite spool and a ‘one-way clutch’ unlimited anti-reverse and anti-twist line roller. Says Carson: “Equipped with an ultra-lightweight free-spool system, the Flash Runner is a smooth drag, quiet reel.” It weighs in at 425g and has a gear ratio of 5.5:1.
More reels from Carson feature in the December Reels Special issue of Angling International, which will be mailed to subscribers at the end of November.
